The Ridgeline, a mainstay of Honda's lineup since 2006, is a large pickup with seating up to 5. The Ridgeline provides exceptional fuel efficiency for its class, saving your wallet and the environment. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Honda offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2023 Honda Ridgeline is safe compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Honda Ridgeline has a score of 88, implying a 0.031% chance of driver death (2.8% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Honda Ridgeline has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0309% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.5316%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0309% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.5316% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is 34% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other pickups, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is 42% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Honda's Honda Sensing greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. An active safety system that is standard on the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Some safety features are optional on the 2023 Honda Ridgeline--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Blind Spot Information System.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
