The i-VTM4® AWD system works with Intelligent Traction Management, which includes three unique modes for tackling snow, sand and mud.
The Ridgeline is ready for a variety of terrains. The Intelligent Traction Management system lets you select between four modes: Normal, Snow, Sand and Mud. Just push a button and explore.
We pushed the all-wheel-drive system to the limit at the Automotive Enviro Testing (AET) facility in Baudette, Minnesota—home to some of the most severe weather in America. From freezing temperatures to harsh terrain, the Ridgeline can perform almost anywhere you take it.
The fully independent front and rear suspensions ensure a better handle on the road to make your drive as smooth as possible. That means even when the road is rough, you'll be riding in more comfort and control than you might in other trucks.
Hit the ground running with a powerful 280-horsepower, direct-injection engine that provides passing power, towing capacity and impressive efficiency.*
The Ridgeline can haul up to 5,000 pounds, has 262 pound-feet of torque and includes a standard integrated tow hitch with a 7-pin connector.
The Ridgeline comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission that delivers a more refined driving experience, with swift acceleration and smooth cruising.
The Ridgeline is unique among pickup trucks for its smooth-riding unibody cab and bed, with an integrated frame that's stronger than conventional body-on-frame designs. Approximately 45% of the body and frame uses special high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel that adds rigidity without undue weight. It also offers better driving characteristics and improved isolation from wind noise and vibration.
From fender flares to newly debuted bronze wheels, Honda Performance Development™ (HPD™) accessories are designed to amplify the appearance of your Ridgeline.
The 2021 Ridgeline sports a bold new look up front. With the striking appearance of its new hood, grille and bumper, the redesigned front end introduces a tougher aesthetic to this iconic truck.
Bright and distinct available LED low-beam headlights with auto-on/off, LED fog lights and Daytime Running Lights (DRL) can help you see and be seen.
Ridgeline was designed to take conventional truck styling and update it as only Honda can, melding form and function into one highly capable package.
Designed to appear more aggressive, new 18-inch wheels give the Ridgeline a dominant stance and visually balance the strong look of the new tires.
The rear end of the Ridgeline features improvements all around, including dual-exhaust outlets for a more powerful feel, a higher bumper for better clearance and sturdier accents that invoke the truck's robust capabilities.
Standard LED taillights help make the Ridgeline easier to see, whether driving at night or stopping in broad daylight.
From its Crystal Black Pearl paint and gloss-black exterior moldings to the complementary black chrome accents and exclusive 18-inch, gloss black alloy wheels, the Black Edition is a daringly different way to Ridgeline.
The Ridgeline features one of the most versatile cabins available, thanks in part to its 60/40 split lift-up rear seats. With a spacious interior that has plenty of room for up to five, the inside is truly accommodating.
The intuitive 8-inch Display Audio touch-screen lets you touch, pinch and swipe your way through all your favorite music, podcasts and talk shows.
Multiple rear-seat configurations create room for a bike, groceries or camping gear. Raising or lowering the rear seats is easy—just pull the release lever and lift the seat cushion.*
Listen to your favorite music outside* with an available industry-first truck-bed audio system* that uses the bed walls to pump out great sound.
The dual-action tailgate opens down for conventional bed loading or to the side for convenient access to the In-Bed Trunk®.
The Ridgeline always brings the beat with a powerful, 540-watt, 8-speaker premium audio system that comes standard on RTL-E and Black Edition. Pick your favorite track, turn up the volume and enjoy your next adventure.
Let your front and rear passengers choose the temperature that's right for them. The standard tri-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone comfortable.
An available 150-watt/400-watt truck-bed outlet in the wall of the bed allows you to plug power tools or a TV* right into the truck.
The available blind spot information system (BSI)* with cross traffic monitor uses sensors in the rear bumper to alert you when approaching vehicles are detected in an adjacent lane or whenever you're in Reverse.
Make it easier to back up to a trailer hitch with a standard multi-angle rearview camera* that offers three different views: wide, normal and top-down.
Every Ridgeline comes with Honda Sensing®, a suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to assist and help protect you and your passengers.
