2025 Honda Ridgeline: What to Expect from the Third-Generation Unibody Pickup – The Honda Ridgeline is a one-of-a-kind mid-size pickup truck that stands out from the rest thanks to its easy ride, unique features, and single-body design. For the second time since 2016, the Ridgeline is now in its second generation. The first generation came out in 2006. However, Honda released the all-new Pilot SUV based on the same engine and shares many parts with the Ridgeline. This means that the Japanese company will soon release the third-generation Ridgeline. Here’s what we know about the 2025 Honda Ridgeline and what might be different about it.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Honda Ridgeline will have a new look that makes it look more demanding and better than the current model. The new Pilot has a strong grille, sleek headlights, and a curved bumper that will likely be used as a model for the front end. The Ridgeline’s classic shape will be kept on the sides, with a crew cab with four doors and a small bed. The back will also get changes, like new headlights, a reworked tailgate, and a new lip.
The new Pilot will also improve the 2025 Honda Ridgeline’s interior. It will have more room, comfort, and technology than before. An extensive tablet infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support will be on the dashboard. There will also be a digital gauge cluster and a head-up display. Depending on the trim level, the seats will be made of leather or cloth and have heating, cooling, and power adjustments. There will be a lot of legroom and headroom in the back seats, and they can be folded up to make more space under the seat. Ridgeline’s unique features include:
– A trunk that fits inside the bed.
– A door that opens in two ways.
– An available sound system that works inside the bed.
The 2025 Honda Ridgeline will keep the same engine as the current model. It will have a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be paired with an all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed automatic gear. The system can split torque between the front and back axles and the left and right wheels. Additionally, the Ridgeline can pull up to 5,000 pounds and carry up to 1,580 pounds.
But it’s also possible that the 2025 Honda Ridgeline will come in a hybrid or electric version. This is because Honda has said it wants to make all of its cars electric by 2040. A hybrid or electric Ridgeline would make the truck run better and use less gas. It would also put out less pollution. There has yet to be an official word or information about such an engine choice.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Honda Ridgeline will likely come out sometime in 2024 for the 2025 model year. The current Ridgeline starts at $37,600 for the base Sport trim and goes up to $44,355 for the top-of-the-line Black Edition trim. The price of the new Ridgeline is likely to go up. The Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier, Hyundai Santa Cruz, and Ford Maverick are some mid-size pickup trucks the 2025 Honda Ridgeline will go up against.
