The updated 2021 Honda Ridgeline pickup, discreetly released in the middle of this year, will join the list of competitive auto industry in the world. As is clear, the new product is not much different from the second generation, which was launched in 2016.
This time, Honda began revising the trim levels, slightly updating the electronic assistant, and installing a new gearbox. What the buyer can ultimately expect is discussed below.
The body of the new 2021 Honda Ridgeline remains unchanged. However, he didn’t need it. The appearance of this 2016 model was very enthusiastically embraced by the public and in three years it has not gone out of style. Although that is not to say that the pickup from Honda really stands out from the competition.
The only thing that is remarkable about the Japanese body design is that the muzzle is not very grand and big, as happened, for example, in the notorious Dodge or Ford. As before, the car is decorated with chrome molding affixed to the optics, a simple radiator grille and fog lamp beams framed with a plastic frame.
The sides are full of classics – a sharply designed cabin, large wheel arches with plastic shields and tiny shark fins on top. The back is boring too. The classic hitch and tailgate protruded beneath it.
While not, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline has a few highlights. First, the board not only leans back, but opens like a standard door. Plus there is a large trunk under the cargo compartment floor with a small compartment for spare wheels. If not, yes, classic pickup.

There are no updates to the 2021 Honda Ridgeline interior either. Apparently, the style change only affected the center tunnel, where now you can’t find the backstage of the machine. Instead, a simple panel is formed with a physical speed control knob. In addition, manual shifting is now available using the paddle behind the wheel.
The rest: half virtual fixed dashboard (small LCD screen in the center), multimedia sensors, architecture, center console, everything is in place before the change.
As before, a light and black 5-seat version will be available. In addition, the angle of the rear door opening was also announced, making landing more comfortable.
This pickup with a monocoque body will receive the same 3.5 liter 6-cylinder engine which is aspirated with a V-shaped cylinder arrangement. Paired will be an 8-band automatic engine. This is basically a major change for the 2021 Honda Ridgeline.
The base variant will offer front wheel drive. On the more expensive version, a separate clutch connects the rear axle. The suspension hasn’t changed either – MacPherson strut up front, torsion beam behind. Disc brake in circle. The front gets additional ventilation.
In terms of dynamic performance, things are not bad – 290 hp engine output. at 355 Hm, the acceleration to the hundreds is 10.1 seconds, and the maximum speed is 230 km / h. Average consumption – 10.4 liters.
It should be noted here that the Japanese continue to work on economical fuel consumption for their pickups. 2021 Honda Ridgeline is no exception. There is now a better cylinder management system.
The bottom line is that at low speed and rotation, the system shuts down “unnecessary” cylinders. So, there is no unnecessary work and, accordingly, there are savings of up to 3.5 liters per hundred.
