What’s the Benefit? This ingenious tailgate design makes for great convenience and functionality for owners.
The Feature: The Honda Ridgeline’s dual-action tailgate can either be lowered, like a conventional tailgate, or it can be swung open like a door, allowing easy access to the bed contents or the In-Bed Trunk®.
A stop at the 30-degree-open position allows bed access in tight spaces, for example, when parallel-parked.
The dual-action tailgate’s 300-pound dynamic-load capacity means that it can safely support the weight of large loads, such as a motorcycle and ATV.38
A special gutter under the tailgate prevents bulk items such as sand or gravel from jamming the mechanism and preventing the tailgate from closing.
The tailgate is also designed to work with Honda’s accessory bed extender.
