2021 Honda Ridgeline styling cues reportedly to appear on other Honda crossovers
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline just got a significant refresh that gave Honda's only pickup an angular truck-like design. Whether it's more attractive or not is in the eye of the beholder, but it definitely looks tougher. According to Motor Trend, this tough look will also affect other models.
The news agency spoke to Honda's Vice President of Marketing Jay Joseph, who said future Honda crossovers would have a more robust design. We reached out to Honda, and a rep confirmed that Ridgeline design features will find their way to Honda's other light truck models (i.e., crossovers). However, the representative was unable to provide the timing of the redesign or the specificity of the models. Without specifying any details, here are some of our theories about how the redesign might work.
One of the easiest things Honda could do is customize the Ridgeline's new bezel to fit the Honda rider and passport. They are all based on the same platform and, apart from a few minor changes, had almost the same front ends before. Honda could just easily create slightly different grille and bumper designs and transfer all of the sheet metal from the ridgeline straight to these crossovers. However, it is also possible that Honda could develop more unique designs for the crossovers to keep the Ridgeline's unique truck-like appearance. Indeed, the pilot could also be the first crossover to receive a robust update, as it hasn't changed much since 2016. The Passport may also get an early update as this is Honda's best-selling crossover and the company may be looking for an affordable way to get attention to the model.
As for the other two Honda crossovers, the CR-V and the HR-V, we suspect that Ridgeline's inspiration will be quite a long way off. Instead, they'll likely have their own unique styling that is given a vaguely rugged touch. You'll likely have slightly more upright, boxy designs than they are now, and possibly more plastic siding. We doubt they'll get the same fascia design as the Ridgeline. The CR-V, in particular, is unlikely to change too radically just because it's Honda's best-selling model right now. It is also sold worldwide, so design changes cannot alienate other markets. The HR-V may leave more room for big changes in design as it gets old and requires a complete redesign. But like CR-V, it must be geared towards global markets.
