It’s big enough to haul the kids and all their sports equipment, some furniture and maybe that new big-screen TV, but the best thing about the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck is its ability to adapt to a commuter lifestyle. The new Honda Ridgeline can zip through traffic and grab that last parking space by the deli during the week, then haul the whole family up to the mountains for a campout on the weekend. With seven different trim packages, there are enough options and price points for just about everyone to enjoy the latest thing on the truck market. Examine and enjoy the Ridgeline by taking a test drive today at Chapman Honda.

Tough Ridgeline Built to Last

With a unit-body construction that molds the body panels and chassis into a single entity, the new Honda Ridgeline enjoys a strong but light structure. This allows the two-wheel drive version to earn a 26 mpg rating on the highway. A 3.5L V6 engine produces a stout 280 horsepower, enough to tow 5,000 pounds and get you up the mountains in a hurry. Choose front wheel or all-wheel drive if you want more control in inclement weather.

Different Trim Levels Packed With Features

The base RT Honda Ridgeline still comes loaded with standard features, including the unique dual-action tailgate and in-bed locking truck. For a few more dollars you can move up to the RTS, which adds fog lights, remote engine start, smart entry and triple zone climate control. The Sport model has some cooler wheels and an awesome Crystal Black Pearl paint job. If you want a leather interior and heated front seats, check out the RTL trim package when you get to Chapman Honda. This model also has a 10-way power driver seat and an acoustic windshield to cut down on road noise. The RTL-T adds navigation, while the RTL-E has all the previous features and includes a blind spot warning system, the Honda sensing suite of driver assistance features and a premium audio system.

Black is Where its At

If you’re looking for something really special to solve your transportation needs, consider the Black Edition. As you might expect, it’s black from head to toe, with a sparkling paint job, leather interior with signature stitching, black alloy wheels and red ambient LED lighting. The Black Edition also has black chrome accents along the grille, rear bumper and window surrounds. Check it out today at Chapman Honda.


Honda is taking the opportunity of the New York Auto Show later this month to unveil the new Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric Vehicle (EV). The Clarity is Honda’s way of addressing the environmental and energy concerns of the planet while providing a transportation solution that meeds the needs of today’s consumers. The hybrid and EV join the Clarity Fuel Cell in an expanded array of environmental vehicle choices. Although the Fuel Cell is only available in California, the Hybrid and EV will be launching soon in all 50 states. Stay in touch with Chapman Honda to see when you can get the first test drive.

Clarity Joins Accord and CR-Z Hybrid

The new Clarity models join the trusty Honda Accord and sporty CR-Z hybrids in the company’s electrified lineup. The Accord is one of America’s most popular cars, uniquely stylish and loaded with technology. Features such as LED daytime running lights make the Accord stand out when going down the road, while sophisticated body lines, a striking front end and bold lines create a memorable style. The interior of the Accord Hybrid delivers a futuristic look with easy-to-read gauges and a smart ergonomic layout. The interior is loaded with premium materials including an option for wood grain and leather. Of course, if you’re buying a hybrid, it’s important to get the latest technology. Honda’s unique two-motor system uses one motor to accelerate and a second to start the gas engine and also charge the first motor. The Accord Hybrid delivers 49 mpg in the city and comes in three different trim levels.

CR-Z Sport Hybrid a Pocket Rocket

The stylish CR-Z Sport Hybrid is not only fuel-efficient, but is dripping with style and charisma from its aerodynamic profile to the brightly lit gauges in the cockpit. The coolest thing about the CR-Z may be the “Plus Sport System” button on the steering wheel. Just push the button for an adrenaline rush of speed, handy for getting on the freeway or when you’re putting the car through its paces on a deserted road. Paddle shifters and a 3-mode drive system pair with the 1.5L i-VTEC engine to deliver phenomenal performance. The CR-Z comes loaded with technology that makes driving both safer and more enjoyable. Test drive the Accord and CR-Z hybrids today at Chapman Honda and make sure and ask when the new Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and EV will be making their first appearance.
