2021 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Honda Ridgeline

Serving Groton, CT

The Ridgeline is Honda’s midsize pickup truck, and it delivers all of the power and features that you may be hoping to find in your next truck. While the 2020 and 2021 Ridgeline are both second-generation versions, this truck has a few must-see updates for the 2021 model year. Our Cardinal Honda reps will show off the improvements to you during your next visit to the dealership.


The impressive capabilities of the 2020 Ridgeline have not been changed for the new model year. This truck draws 280 horsepower from a V6, 3.5-liter engine. A nine-speed auto transmission and your choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive drivetrains are available. The Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 pounds and has a 1,580-pound payload capacity.


The front end of the Ridgeline has been boldly improved for the 2021 model year. The 2020 Ridgeline has excellent appeal with a cascading hood and a rounded nose. The integrated unit with the grille and headlights curves upward slightly. In the 2021 Ridgeline, the front end has been squared off with a muscular, defined hood and an elongated grille. The chrome bar that runs along the top of the grille transitions into a long LED light bar that sharply makes a downward bend to complete the look.


The Ridgeline has a crew cab interior across all trims for both model years. The rear seats fold up to optimize storage space in the cabin as needed. For 2021, the infotainment system has been refined with a user-friendly layout and a fresh look. Throughout the trims for 2020 and 2021, the Ridgeline has equipment like a digitalized instrumentation screen, a push-button ignition, power windows, a charging station, a heated steering wheel with several mounted controls, an automatic climate control system and several other items.
