Honda’s Ridgeline Pickup Gets Some Utilitarian Off-Road Upgrades For 2021

Oct 12, 2020

Category: Rides

The Honda Ridgeline was already a formidable off-road vehicle, but with plenty of competition in the mid-sized segment, it’s had its work cut out against larger rivals like the Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado, and Ford Ranger. To give it a more domineering presence for 2021, Honda has decided to upgrade the pickup in terms of aesthetic and material appeal.

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline has finally broken cover, and it’s a (mostly) different beast from its previous model year. To amply the vehicle’s presence in the mid-size genre, the band has revised its front-end to take on newly-fashioned sheet metal, including an all-new hood, upright grille, and enhanced fender flares. Large side vents work hand in hand with the Ridgeline’s reevaluated bumper and tailpipe layout, complementing the truck’s more utilitarian inclusions. Below, a new skid-plate makes its debut, protecting the pickup’s front end from low-clearance damage. Of course, the platform pictured here is the recipient of the Ridgeline’s new Honda Performance Development (HPD) package — a “fully-loaded” version that introduces shadowy fender flares, HPD graphics, and bronze-colored wheels. Look for the redesigned Ridgeline at your nearest Honda dealer in 2021.
