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.
