After some time of brake, this truck is coming back. Original model was produced between 2005 and 2014, and second generation is coming this spring, as 2017 year model. When it is about 2018 Honda Ridgeline, precise details are unknown but, since it will come in second year of production, changes are not expected, at least those bigger ones. This model is expected to come with pretty much same characteristics and we could expect only some smaller novelties such as new color options and minimal tweaks.
2018 Honda Ridgeline redesign
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline will come with the pretty much same characteristics as new model that is coming this spring. This means that it feature all of the changes that come with this redesign and this redesign includes plenty of them. New model comes with completely new appearance. Although it is very modern, we must admit that new model is much more conventional than original model. On the other side, it will keep most of the original’s characteristics, when it is about other design solutions.
2018 Honda Ridgeline features
The 2018 Ridgeline will also feature things such as In-Bed Truck, dual-action tailgate, a flat bed, and the same rear 60/40 split bench seat with flat load floor. Just like original, it will feature a unibody structure. There is a new “Ace Body Structure”, which will provide many improvements. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline will share many characteristics with new Pilot that came recently. It will share the platform. When it is about front part of the truck, it will be visually almost identical to Pilot, with just some smaller modifications. Same thing is with interior, where new model will come with more car-like cabin. Comfort will be on higher level and also full of advanced features in all aspects.
2018 Honda Ridgeline under the hood
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline will be powered with the same engine as Pilot. It is a 3.5 liter V6, which outputs around 250 horses and 253 pound-feet of torque. However, for this occasion it could be slightly tuned up, so you should expect a little bit more power. When it is about transmission, we will see same, proven, 6-speed automatic transmission, which will send power to either two or all wheels.
2018 Honda Ridgeline release date and price
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is expected to come somewhere late next year. We expect starting price around 30.000 dollars.
