2024 Honda Ridgeline Redesign: What We Know So Far

The current generation of Honda’s mid-size pickup has been around since 2016 and it looks like the replacement could come already in the next year. If we can trust the latest rumors, the new generation could come already as the 2024 Honda Ridgeline. At this point, the officials are still quiet about this, so we suggest you stay reserved about the following paragraphs.

Even though the officials are still quiet about this, we know what to expect from the next-generation Ridgeline. We presume the new model would feature the same overall design approach, with the unibody platform and crossover driving experience. On the other hand, we count on a completely new design, with new technologies and maybe even a new powertrain.

2024 Honda Ridgeline Redesign

If this redesign happens, the 2024 Honda Ridgeline will represent the third generation of the nameplate. Also, we know what to expect from the new model, at least when it comes to the base design. Of course, we are talking about the platform, which will once again feature a unibody layout. Naturally, the new model would share a lot of parts with the upcoming next-generation Pilot. Improvements are expected in all aspects, while the overall layout will remain the same. Once again, we will see all the benefits of the unibody design, which are mostly about superior ride quality, whether it’s about comfort and performance. However, such a design also brings a couple of limitations and we have no doubt that the 2024 Honda Ridgeline won’t be able to tow as much as body-on-frame rivals, such as Chevy Colorado and Ford Ranger.

Naturally, the upcoming redesign will also bring a completely new styling. At this point, it’s hard to talk about details. Still, once the new Pilot takes off the camouflage, we will know the look of the front end of the new Ridgeline. The rest of the body should also come with a bolder and bulkier appearance, while the crew cab layout will remain the only body style in the offer.


So far, the interior design has been one of Ridgeline’s strongest points. If you look at the current generation, it comes with a car-like interior design, with an attractive dashboard and nice materials. So, we expect nothing less from the next-generation 2024 Honda Ridgeline, which should bring further improvements in terms of interior quality. Naturally, we also expect to see new tech features, particularly in terms of the new infotainment system, digital instrument cluster and new driver-assistance features.

As we already mentioned, the new model will continue in a crew cab layout only, so you may count on a decently sized bed, in a combination with a cabin that offers plenty of room in both rows of seats and accommodates five adults with ease.

2024 Honda Ridgeline Engines

When it comes to the powertrain, most rumors suggest that the next-generation  2024 Honda Ridgeline would continue with the same 3.5-liter V6 engine, which currently puts out around 280 horsepower. Of course, we would probably see a little bit more power, while the new 10-speed automatic would be also installed.

On the other hand, some experts speculate about the possibility to see this pickup with a turbo-four engine. We presume that would be the well-known 2.0-liter engine, which currently powers a couple of Honda models, such as the Accord, Civic Type R etc.

2024 Honda Ridgeline Release Date and Price

The 2024 Honda Ridgeline is still just a rumor, but these rumors suggest that the next-generation model would probably arrive some time in the second half of the next year. We presume that the base price would go around 36.000 dollars.

      1. That’s ONLY the Canadian models so far. Not sure why in Canada and not the U.S. where it’s warmer, but the cooled seats are in the Touring (RTL-E in the U.S.) and Black Edition. They also have heated rear seats, climate control for the rear seats, power folding mirrors and more that the U.S. doesn’t get. Can ANYONE explain why?

  1. Patrick Francher

    Three features that would be outstanding. 1-Heads Up—have it on my wife’s BMW and absolutely love it. 2-the feature when activated that allows removing your foot from the brake at a stop light. The best (also from her vehicle). 3-better gps…mine -in a word-sucks! Ways does a much better job from my phone. I have a ’17E I picked up in 9/16-18,000 miles. Looking to change with the new design…but only if it really is an enhanced truck from the current. This is my second R’line (first an ’06 I bought w/9k in ’09 and traded on the current one). Love this truck

  2. Would like to be able to order same options as in Canada. Folding mirrors, ventilated seats, heated rear seats.

  3. Would love to see Honda put the stick shifter back on the center console.
    Get rid of the lame shifting knob. Get rid of the weak fold down arm rest and pout a decent high rise padded console. Power folding mirrors, ventilated seats, Power tilt and telescoping steering, Heads up display. But the stick shifter is the most glaring redesign that should be done. All the other truck manufacturers have this in their pickups. So I know it’s not an electronic transmission issue. I hope Honda will incorporate these changes in the 2024. Honda Ridgeline. Power is adequate. Even my 2017 model has very good power with a 6 speed transmission.

    1. Having electronic controls for the transmission, positioned vertically, next to cup holders is a terrible idea. Airplane designers learned this in the ‘50s.

      You should see what coffee does to switch box.

  4. Will Honda put the stick shifter back in the Ridgeline? I hear that with electronic transmissions that isn’t possible. But all the competitors have the stick shifter in their pickups. Also get rid of those flimsy fold down arm rests and put in a normal high padded console. Power folding mirrors, turn signals in the outside mirrors, cool ventilated seats, larger infotainment screen, and maybe even a little more power. Thank you, Bob

  5. Need to add a large middle console arm rest with gear shifter stick. Also get rid of the chrome trim and door handles.

    1. Hi Rob. I agree with ya about the arm rest and gear shifter, but the chrome trim on the RTL-E is a very nice thing to separate the models. I happen to like it, looks great with a nice set of chrome wheels. For those that don’t care for chrome, simply just buy a Sport, RTL or Black Edition….those three models delete the chrome trim….problem solved. 😉

  6. Why not make it more like a real truck, higher, full frame, more off road capable, and look cooler, wider interior, shift handle, keep AWD, cool colors, maybe a v8 or larger v6. Have a Pilot but not even Trail Sport true off roader.

  7. I traded a 2016 canyon slt for a 2023ridgeline rtle . The canyon was a cramped interior and rode like a bucking bull, the ridgeline was like a luxury car smooth n quiet handles nice I don’t know why people insist on a vechile that can goes off road ,if that’s the case than buy a atv , the new trucks have raised there truck anywhere from 2 to 4 inches plus god bless them . I need a vechile that easy to get in drives n handles nice n quiet . I really didn’t care at first about a Honda Ridgeline until I looked n drove one if I knew about the difference I would have bought one sooner.

  8. Change the engine idle stop to be the reverse of what it is. The engine idle stop should be what you select, not how it is now where it is preselected. I hate how I have to push the button every time I start the vehicle. I do not want my vehicle turning off at every stop. I would rather be the one to select this if I want to have the car do that.
