You're right, they don't make a FWD Ridgeline. Those come as 4WD standard. The Pilot, which is essentially the Ridgeline with the truck bed swapped for a third row and cargo area, does come in FWD or 4WD.
The FWD on the Pilot only can tow 2500lbs, while the 4WD option on the Pilot can tow 4500lbs.
In his other thread he was asking about a Toyota Highlander. Both the Highlander and the Pilot/Ridgeline 4WD/AWD models run as FWD the majority of the time until a need for power to the rear wheels is detected. They then put power there automatically. They also have an option to lock it at low speeds.
They operate in pretty much the same way, where they are FWD unless needed. I believe that is what he was asking about, vehicles like this as opposed to typical trucks that are RWD until you lock the front hubs up and make it 4WD.
Also, any of these that are the FWD version instead of the AWD/4WD versions, would not be a wise or safe thing to tow with.
