Despite various reports that suggest updates on 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab and similar things, it looks like this pickup truck is about to carry on in the same way. With a unibody platform, it is one of a kind in the segment. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the comfort is actually in the focus, instead of hauling, so 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab will remain the only body style in the offer.
A couple of smaller updates are possible, though we don’t expect to see a mid-cycle update, as some reports suggest.
- Smooth ride
- Comfortable cabin
- Long list of safety features
- Lower towing capacity than rivals
- High starting price
This aspect definitely won’t bring bigger changes. Simply, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab will remain one of a kind in the segment of mid-size pickup trucks, thanks to its car-based design. Such a design approach ensures an incredibly smooth ride for a truck, pretty much on par with crossovers.
The overall comfort is at an impressive level, while the efficiency is pretty good as well. In terms of the styling, we are about to see a familiar appearance, which has been introduced three years ago. It is a typical crew-cab layout, with a very spacious cabin and the face that looks pretty much the same as the current-generation Pilot.
This is definitely one of the strongest points of the truck. Compared to the BoF trucks like Tacoma or Colorado, the 2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab will continue to deliver a superior ride quality and impressive overall comfort. Also, the cabin looks very stylish.
You can easily notice hi-quality materials all around the cabin, particularly on the dashboard, which looks very opulent for a truck. Therefore we don’t expect more important changes for the next year. Still, a couple of sources suggest we could finally see a new infotainment system, considering that the current one can be a little bit tricky to use sometimes.
This aspect definitely won’t bring any change. The upcoming model will carry on with a familiar 3.5-liter V6, which delivers around 280 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission and delivers pretty strong acceleration and convenient ride.
Fuel economy is also pretty good, as you can count on 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. On the other side, towing capacity is notably lower compared to BoF rivals and goes up to 5.000 pounds.
2021 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Release Date and Price
