From the car and driver
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline Pickup gets a new look along with an available rugged Honda Performance Development (HPD) package.
The changes include a new front end, 18-inch wheels, two exhaust tips, and more.
They'll arrive in the U.S. early next year and start at just over $ 35,000.
Honda is giving the 2021 model year Ridgeline pickup a refreshing look that includes changes to the front end, a new skid plate, a set of stock 18-inch wheels, and a harder rear end with dual exhaust tips. A new Appearance Package for Honda Performance Development (HPD) is also available for the new trucks that will arrive in the US next year.

The upper half of the new face of the Ridgeline looks almost unchanged, but gets a more angular top end with a redesigned crossbar on the grille, which, depending on the equipment, is either glossy black or chrome and connects the headlights. At the bottom, the front bumper gets most of the changes, adding side vents that help move air around the front wheels. All 2021 Ridgelines will receive 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-season tires.
There's also a new Honda Performance Development Appearance Pack (pictured above) for the new trucks that kind of reminds us of Toyota's TRD Pro models, but isn't that legit. The package, available for each trim, includes a unique, more aggressive, darkened grille, black fender flares, bronze wheels, and HPD graphics on the bed walls. The only thing missing is some Fox shocks.
All 2021 Ridgelines are powered by a 280 hp 3.5-liter V6 with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The RTL-E and Black Edition models are equipped with all-wheel drive as standard, while they are available for the basic Sport and RTL models. We recommend opting for the all-wheel drive system as it allows a towing capacity of up to 5000 pounds.

The new vehicles will also get an updated display audio system with new graphics and a physical volume control. All panels have new contrasting stitching, while the Sport, RTL and RTL-E models have new highlights for the dashboard, steering wheel and center console. Honda Sensing, which includes forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane departure control and adaptive cruise control, is standard on the 2021 Ridgeline.
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline Pickup will arrive in the US early next year and will start at a little over $ 35,000.
