The Ridgeline is Honda’s answer to the American obsession with pickup trucks. Although competing with the all American powerhouses on their own turf isnt a small task, the Ridgeline holds its own. It might not be the most rugged or equipped truck out there, but it holds its own. 

 The 2022 Ridgeline is expected to have minimal changes, if any, as after the 2021 redesign, it won't be getting any major changes. Just like the current generation the 2022 model year is said to be offered in Sports, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition trim levels.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Considering the price point of the Ridgeline, it competes with the Chevrolet Colorado and the Ford Ranger. These trucks have made a significant name for themselves in the market over the years. The Ridgeline is going to have to work hard to make this a fair fight.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Engine and Performance

Since its release, the Ridgeline has always been powered by a mighty 3.5L V6 engine. Over the years this engine has seen minor tweaks and updates to keep it on par with modern-day standards. When released in 2012 the Ridgeline produced about 250hp which was pretty impressive back then and a 247 lb-ft of torque which was average around that time. In 2017 when Honda released the updated Ridgeline, the engine powering the truck remained the same 3.5L V6 but it was tweaked a bit. Now it produced 280hp and 262 lb.ft of torque. But as of the competition, it jumped ahead by a huge leap and Honda remained in the bottom columns of the table when it came to power. Also, it was significantly low on towing capacity. While others in this segment could tow up to 7000 lbs, the Honda maxed out at 5000 lbs.

The 2022 model year is expected to carry the same engine but it is speculated that Honda might add a hybrid drivetrain as other manufacturers. As earlier the engine is likely to be paired with the ZF-9 speed automatic transmission.

In terms of power, the Ridgeline falls right in the middle of the class, which is led by the Colorado. The base Colorado has less power than the Ridgeline, however, when you compare trims of the same price point, the Colorado does lead. In contrast to that, the Ranger’s base trim is enough to stay in the mix. The Colorado’s power advantage gives it better acceleration, however, the Ridgeline has no excuse when compared to the Ranger. With a more attractive sticker price and comparable power, the Ranger still trumps the Ridgeline here, making the Ridgeline the slowest of the class. 

Handling and Braking 

Thanks to Honda’s Intelligent Variable Traction Management torque-vectoring AWD, the Ridgeline does not seem as slow in real life as it seems on paper. This system is able to direct up to 70% of the torque to the rear wheels, and in that it can decide which of the rear wheels the torque more, judging by the direction in which the vehicle is turning. This helps instil confidence in the vehicle during spirited driving and makes up any loss of thrill which comes to its comparative average acceleration. All in all, the Ridgeline is an absolute thrill to drive. 

The brakes in the Ridgeline carry over from the smaller Honda Pilot. Although their braking performance is sufficient, real bite does kick in unless you really floor the pedal. It is true that Honda can undoubtedly work on the braking modulation of the Ridgeline, but braking performance speaks for itself. Going 60 mph, the truck comes to a standstill in around 128 feet. With 12.6” brake rotors in the front and 13” ones in the rear, and an approximate curb weight of 4500 pounds, this braking performance is indeed impressive.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Fuel Economy

The 3.5L V6 unit is likely to stay under Ridgeline’s bonnet. So, the current speculations would be that the fuel efficiency of the truck is likely to remain the same. The 2021 Ridgeline did 19 miles per gallon in the city. Whereas in a gallon of fuel you could do 25 miles run out on a highway in the Honda. And when combined the numbers add up to 20 miles per gallon. These figures are best in class even when compared to the 2WD rivals. But as other manufacturers are moving towards a hybrid drivetrain it is likely that Honda also adds a hybrid drivetrain to the 2022 model which will improve the fuel economy even more. But as of now, the 2022 model is getting the 3.5L V6 unit only.

Fuel economy has always been a weak spot for the Ridgeline. With the Ranger getting much better fuel economy, the Ridgeline’s saving grace is the Colorado, which manages worse fuel economy here. This is only the case for the higher trims of the Colorado, as the much efficient Inline 4 engines which come in the base models of the Colorado are much more efficient.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Interior

With the 2021 refresh, Honda worked on the interior of the pickup as well. The Ridgeline's already magnificent interior was enhanced furthermore by adding some modern touches. The 2021 model year featured an all-new 8.0-inch infotainment screen with all-new software. This software made the infotainment system faster and crisper. And the most notable change was the addition of a physical volume knob. Other changes included a revised dashboard done in high-quality materials. Talking about the space offered on the inside, well it was never a problem for the Ridgeline.

In fact, it offered the best cabin space in its segment. For the 2022 model year expect the addition of few modern features like updated infotainment features and creature comforts and a new steering wheel or no change at all.

The Rideline takes the lead in terms of cabin space. It will feel more roomy as the shoulder room it provides is unchallenged. Not only in the first row, but in the second row too, the Rideline is more likely to fill all 5 seats and not feel uncomfortable. The Ranger on the other hand has a more simplified approach, making both its rows of seemingly the same size, just with reduced legroom in the rear row.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Exterior

Honda gave the Ridgeline a thorough redesign for the 2021 model year. It was a typical facelift. On the outside, the changes included a new front end which gave it a more rugged look which it deserved. The old grille was replaced with a new one which features a massive mesh pattern along with a new headlamp and bumper design. Other than the Ridgeline still features the same body structure as of the 2017 model year. So it is likely that the 2022 model year won't go under any further major bodywork until and unless Honda brings in an all-new Pilot on which the Ridgeline is based on.

Although the ground clearance of the 2022 Ridgeline is not specified, it has always lost in this aspect to its competitors, however not by a large margin. With a suspected curb weight of approximately 4500 lbs, the Ridgeline will also feel a bit more heavier than the competition, out of which the Ranger is the lightest.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Safety

According to the NHTSA crash test, the 2021 Ridgeline got an overall rating of 5-star with only one 4 star rating in the rollover test. This is particularly great news when we consider that the 2022 model year is going to be based on the 2021 model. Another thing to rejoice in is the number of safety features that would be available with the 2022 model year. Just as the current model, every trim of the 2022 Ridgeline is going to be equipped with Honda Safety Sense which is an array of driver-assist highlights that offers Front Collision Mitigation and Automated Emergency Braking as standard. Other safety features range from basic Traction Control and Electronic Stability Program to Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring in the higher trim levels. It is expected that the 2022 Ridgeline is going to get some of the safety features of the higher-end 2021 Ridgeline as standard across the line-up.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Final Verdict

As of now, there hasn't been any official release date from Honda's side. But as per the speculations it is thought to be reaching the dealerships by early 2022. As no major changes have been reported for the 2022 Ridgeline, expect the prices to fall between $37,665 to $44,695 range including the delivery charges. But if Honda includes a hybrid drivetrain then expect the prices to shoot up by quite some margin.

Best family pickup!

Pros - Spacious crew cabin. Car-like comfort. Fuel-effecient.

Cons - Braking issues. Mediocre dash styling.

The most comfortable pickup! I chose the Ridgeline over other pickups for just one reason - comfort. There isn't much jostling around or rough ride like most pickups which is what I love the most. It provides the prcaticality of a pick-up with a sedan-like comfort. I have managed upto 22 mpg on my family trips. It just feels great to drive on longer highway trips with the comfort it offers. I did face an issue with a mushy brake pedal which got fixed with a visit to the workshop. Apart from that, it has been a great pickup! It was a smooth buying experience. Carlos helped me with the options and got me a great APR deal which was literally the best I could find!
