Honda has unveiled the 2021 Honda Ridgeline, which has received a facelift to give it a more rugged look.
Honda says that all the metal from the A-pillar forward is new. At the front the Ridgeline’s face is now more squared off with a new grille and bumper that make it look a bit more masculine. There’s also a new hood with a power bulge and new front fenders.
The 2021 Ridgeline also rides on new 18-inch wheels with backspacing reduced 10 mm and that increases track width a total of 20 mm.
If you want it to look even more rugged, there’s a new HPD Package that adds a unique grille treatment, black fender flares, aggressive bronze-colored wheels, and special HPD graphics on the bed walls.
Inside the changes are smaller with a new Display Audio system and accents.
The 2021 Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, that’s mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Ridgeline is also available with a i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system, which automatically sends up to 70 percent of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels and continuously apportions 100 percent of that torque between the left and right rear wheels.
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline will arrive early next year.
