Truck Bed of the 2018 Honda Ridgeline

The new Honda Ridgeline also offers convenient features that other trucks don’t offer, such as the Ridgeline’s exciting truck bed. In fact, the truck bed of the new Ridgeline was designed with minimal wheel well housings in order to make hauling easier and allow for more space. The new truck also offers a lockable 7.3 cu.ft In-Bed Trunk which can store extra gear or water bottles and ice for those doing work on a hot day. The bed also allows for other conveniences thanks to its available 150W/400W Truck-Bed Outlet, as well as the industry-first Truck Bed Audio System for your favorite tunes.
