2021 Honda Ridgeline Features
Boasting all-new exterior styling, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline brings a more rugged look to go along with its serious utility. A redesigned grille with Projector-beam LED headlights sit above the newly-styled front fascia, while brand new 18” aluminum-alloy wheels cement the powerful nature of the Ridgeline. Add in the new bumper, with dual exhaust tips, and the 2021 Ridgeline makes its presence known on any road it travels. However, it’s not just athletic looks that have been added to this utilitarian Honda pickup. A dual-action tailgate can either be laid flat for additional cargo room, or popped open for easier loading, while the lockable In-Bed Trunk™ of the Ridgeline ensures you can stow your belongings with serious peace-of-mind.
Bridging the exterior to the interior of the 2021 Ridgeline is a power-sliding rear cabin window with defroster, offering up a breath of fresh air in warmer weather or a clearer view during those cooler winter days. Those same winter days are no match for the standard heated front seats in the Ridgeline, or the available heated leather-wrapped steering wheel or heated rear seats. The interior of the Ridgeline is incredibly refined, with a blend of metallic finishes, technical grain, and durable, embossed fabric seats. Of course, you can take that refinement up a notch with the available leather-trimmed seats. Finally, the 60/40 lift-up rear seats ensure that the bed of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline isn’t the only place you’ll find class-leading storage space.

Whether you’re tackling tough jobs on the worksite, or forging your own path through the Rockies, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline has the power to get the job done. A 3.5-litre Direct Injection i-VTEC® V6 engine with VCM® (Variable Cylinder Management) gives the Ridgeline a hearty 280 horses to power past other vehicles on the highway, while its 262 lb-ft of torque provide a standard towing capacity of up to 5,000 lbs. Legendary Honda efficiency comes courtesy of the Ridgeline’s 9-speed automatic transmission, while the standard heavy-duty automatic transmission cooler ensures you’ll receive top fuel economy whether you’re cruising through the city or hauling on the highway. Fully independent front and rear suspensions give this Honda pickup a smooth ride no matter the terrain, while the advanced i-VTM4™ (intelligent Variable Torque Management) AWD system utilizes torque vectoring for exceptional handling no matter the conditions. Speaking of which, Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management System allows you to switch between drive modes like Snow, Sand, and Mud at the push of a button, giving you even greater control regardless of what Mother Nature throws your way.

Safety & Technology
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline isn’t just packed with power and utility, it also offers a heaping helping of advanced safety features and technology. An 8-inch Display Audio System compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ handles all your infotainment needs, before turning into a perfect parking partner thanks to the multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines. Qi-compatible devices are given a wireless charging station up front along with standard USB outlets, while select models offer USB outlets for rear passengers as well. Upgrades like the available 540-watt Premium audio system with 8 speakers and a sub let you rock out in the cabin, while the industry-first, Truck-Bed Audio System™ turns your Ridgeline into a portable stereo on wheels.
While the technology found above make every trip a more enjoyable one, it’s the standard Honda Sensing™ Technologies in the 2021 Ridgeline that make every trip a safer one. That’s all thanks to advanced driver assistance systems like Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking™, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Road Departure Mitigation. Add in Adaptive Cruise Control, and you’ve got a pickup where a second set of eyes comes standard.
Honda Ridgeline Model Changes
