Updated 2021 Honda Ridgeline Coming In February

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline gains a rugged new look and keeps its impressive capabilities


  • The facelift includes a new front fascia and a revised rear bumper.

  • The cabin now sports an updated display audio system.

  • Pricing in Canada starts at $44,355.


The Ridgeline is another Honda product that is way ahead of its time, and unfortunately, far too under-appreciated. Honda is keeping their midsize pickup fresh for the 2021 model year with a handful of updates and by keeping the features that make it unique.

The facelift involves everything from the “A” pillars forward. The front fenders and hood are all new, as is the upright grille. Below the black or chrome grille is a prominent skid plate and, on each side, brighter LED headlights. The front bumper shows side vents that route air around the new wider 18-inch wheels. The new rear bumper harbors twin exhaust outlets.

The changes in the cabin are limited to contrast stitching for all trims. Depending on the selected trim, various accents and inserts will find their way on the seats and other surfaces. The big change involves an update to the display audio system which now features a physical volume knob.

All 2021 Honda Ridgeline are powered by the 280-horsepower 3.5-litre V6 mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Honda’s i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system is standard on all grades. The i-VTM4 can send up to 70% of available torque to the rear wheels and split it between the left and right rear wheels based on driving conditions at each wheel.

As always, the Ridgeline is delivered with a unique and brilliant bed featuring the class-exclusive In-Bed Trunk lockable storage compartment accessible via the dual-action tailgate.

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline Sport is priced at $44,355. The EX-L is $47,355 while the Touring goes for $51,555. Finally, the Black Edition retails for $53,055.

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline goes on sale on January 15th and arrives in dealerships in early February.
