Honda Ridgeline has unique advantages in the segment like the clever bed solution, SUV-like styling and interior, and most of all the SUV-based, unibody design which provides the class-best road manners and ride comfort. Still, that comes at the cost and the Ridgeline can’t tow as other, mid-size, body-on-frame trucks and a lower ride height also limits the off-road capability.
The Ridgeline has the single powertrain option but offers the variety of options and quality materials. The model was all-new for the 2017 model year while its SUV counterpart was redesigned a year earlier. The Pilot SUV received the mid-update for the 2019 model year and we expect now the 2020 Honda Ridgeline to follow.
The 2020 model year should bring revised styling like on the three-row SUV and the interior is expected with some design changes and upgraded tech features. Honda should also make the suite of active safety system available on all versions. There could also be more upgrades as Honda promised the electrified light-truck range and the 2020 Ridgeline could gain the Accord sedan-based hybrid setup. Still, everything is unofficial.
