As its release date draws near, Sioux Falls drivers are eager to find out, will Honda redesign the Ridgeline for 2021? Yes! The 2021 Honda Ridgeline will be redesigned both inside and out, from nose to bed, with a design concept that meets at the intersection of rugged and modern. While Ridgeline still sports a contemporary style, its reimagined front fascia provides a more traditional, pickup truck look. What can South Dakota expect from the 2021 Ridgeline’s redesigned interior? Honda has made the following upgrades for the 2021 model year:
Every 2021 Honda Ridgeline will carry a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission capable of up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Ridgeline remains one of the safest trucks on South Dakota roads thanks to standard-equipped Honda Sensing® and newly-standard Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ (i-VTM4®) all-wheel drive system across all four trim levels.
Honda has promised a new, Radiant Red Metallic exterior color that will be available for the 2021 model year, but Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls is yet to find any leaked photos of the new paint choice. Fortunately, we have the following 2021 Honda Ridgeline photos below to tie us over until the redesigned truck’s release date.
The staff here at Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the redesigned Ridgeline, but what are the automotive experts saying about this midsize truck prior to its release date? Read the 2021 Honda Ridgeline review excerpts below to find out what authorities like Car and Driver, MotorTrend, and Kelley Blue Book are saying about the all-new Ridgeline.
“The engine feels smooth, and throttle response is especially receptive when you call for hard acceleration. An untraditional pickup in many ways, the Ridgeline surprises from behind the wheel. On the road, it is well-mannered and feels extremely competent. Its coil-sprung independent rear suspension contributes to a carlike ride quality not available with the leaf-sprung, solid-axle setups used by the competition. Body lean in corners is minimal, and small bumps are barely noticeable.” 1
“Unibody construction and fully independent suspension make the Ridgeline’s road manners nicer than certain body-on-frame, solid-axle equipped competitors. That helps it perform well as a daily driver, even if its competitors are better equipped for tough work. In a 2019 comparison of the pre-refresh Ridgeline, the Honda placed second—behind the Chevrolet Colorado, but ahead of the Toyota Tacoma and Ford Ranger. In the comparison, we appreciated its large bed, surprising capability, and dual-action tailgate.” 2
“The 280-horsepower V6 has the right amount of thrust even when there’s a load on board. And the all-wheel-drive system has its own set of tricks. It can send up to 70 percent of available torque to the rear wheels. It can also direct every bit of that force to either rear wheel, according to which one has the most traction at the time. This is known as torque vectoring, and it brings benefits in on-road handling as well as off-road grip.” 3
