The first generation of the first truck-based ridgeline on a car in the US market and was able to determine the direction of the manufacturers in the future. Because he was getting too old, and Honda stopped and model a few years, many people thought it was not going to come back.
About a year ago, although it has announced that the new model was going to be released with the 2018 Honda Ridgeline and surely enough, and the truck was first introduced a few months ago.

Under the hood, they declared 2018 Honda Ridgeline will use a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 direct injection and which is also used on the pilot. On the truck, although the engine is likely to get closer to 300 horsepower, and a little more than 270 lb-ft of torque, which will be enough to become one of the fastest models in its class.
Despite the unibody design, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline be able to pull up to 7,000 pounds or more, all the while having a usable load of about 800 pounds, which is very good for its class.

It seems that the most likely candidate for that would be Honda 9-speed automatic transmission that will drive either the front wheels or via electronic differentials. Some rumors also suggested reinforced six-speed automatic transmission that will be able to deal with all that drips a little better than the 9-speed unit.
