Prices for the 2021 Honda Ridgeline pickup revealed

January 14, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The Japanese automaker has released pricing for its 2021 Honda Ridgeline compact pickup. Due to the fact that the all-wheel drive system has become standard in all trim levels of the new product, the price has grown significantly.

Honda has unveiled its Ridgeline version of the 2021 model year. Many updates have focused on giving the pickup a more brutal appearance, although these changes come at a price. The updated 2021 Ridgeline will retail for a minimum of $ 36,490. That’s about $ 2,500 more than the 2020 Honda Ridgeline.

The updated pickup will begin shipping to dealers early next month.

The starting price of $ 36,490 is for the base sports version. The Ridgeline RTL trim adds nearly $ 3,000 to the price – it starts at $ 39,470. The RTL-E version has a starting price of $ 42,420, while the more expensive Ridgeline Black Edition has a starting price tag of $ 43,920. The trim is stylistically different, with the Sport and Black Edition getting a high-gloss black grille crossbar versus chrome on the RTL and RTL-E.

Much of Honda’s focus was on restyling the front end of the Ridgeline, which was an unusual move. Honda has revamped the sheet metal in front of the A-pillar, giving the pickup a more boxy front end design instead of the sloped front end like the Honda Odyssey. Honda has added a taller bonnet with a noticeable bulge, a re-shaped front bumper cover, stiffer fenders and sleek air curtains. The interior of the newest car has the latest infotainment system.

The new, more expensive price tag is probably a consequence of the availability of an all-wheel drive system for absolutely all pickup configurations. All-wheel drive is paired with a 3.5-liter V6 Honda engine and a 9-speed automatic. The motor produces 280 hp. (355).

Not so long ago, we wrote that Honda has stopped producing the second generation HR-V crossover. However, the car will have a successor that will receive cardinal differences. True, this will not happen immediately.
