2022 Honda Ridgeline: A Modern Pickup Truck
Honda recently released its plans for the 2022 Honda Ridgeline. The changes made to the vehicle in 2021 have carried over and now include some new features. We’ll discuss the essential aspects of the pickup truck to provide you with enough information to decide if the 2022 Honda Ridgeline is for you.
2022 Honda Ridgeline Redesign Changes
While most of the features from 2021 are present in the new model, the 2022 Honda Ridgeline has minor differences. You can expect a blunter nose and a broader grille which enhances its beastly appearance.
Twin exhaust pipes accompany the black cladding over the square wheel arches and a new color, Sonic Gray Pearl, is available for this year.
Performance & Fuel Economy
Honda’s Ridgeline emphasizes quality, comfortable rides, and performs as an SUV should, offering better handling than rivals in this class. Every trim level of the 2022 Honda Ridgeline comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 280 horsepower.
Since front-wheel drives are discontinued, all Ridgelines are available as an all-wheel drive with power routed via a nine-speed automatic transmission. For a mid-size pickup, it’s pretty quick at 60 mph in 6.3 seconds.
In terms of fuel economy, expect the 2022 Honda Ridgeline to return 18/24 mpg** city and highway, respectively.
How are the Honda Ridgeline 2021’s Towing & Storage Capacity?
If you’re using the 2022 Honda Ridgeline to transport loads regularly, you should know that the vehicle has a capacity of 1,583 pounds.
Additionally, the Ridgeline can pull 5,000 pounds — a fair amount for a truck of this size if you need towing.
When considering the price of the 2022 Honda Ridgeline, factor in the multiple features that come standard with the vehicle where you’d have to pay for as an extra in a rival brand.
To put it into perspective, the Ridgeline comes standard with a crew cab, V6 engine and all-wheel drive — all of which will demand additional funds with other trucks. There are four trims, and pricing ranges from $36,890* to $44,320*.

The Honda 2022 Ridgeline was put through its paces by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and rated a five out of five for the front and side crash tests. It received four out of five for the rollover test, indicating that this truck is dependable.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the truck a good rating for most crash tests.
Technology & Safety Features
Safety is essential for Honda, which is why the Ridgeline is packed with enough safety features. The truck comes with Honda Sensing, the company’s suite of safety properties.
These include forward-collision warning, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation system, adaptive cruise control and blind-spot warning as an optional extra.
Elsewhere, the Honda Ridgeline enjoys a wide range of new technologies. Standard technology includes remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, Dual-Action tailgate, bed trunk, LED headlights and fog lamps, and a height-adjustable driver seat. Features that are available include a power moonroof, power sliding rear window, heated steering wheel and navigation.
Interior Comfort & Cargo
You can expect the 2022 Honda Ridgeline to be spacious on the inside, with enough legroom for both rows of passengers. Upfront, you get 40.9 inches while the rear offers 36.7 inches. The second row of seats folds down to accommodate additional cargo inside the cabin.
While the bed is five feet long, the tailgate folds down, extending to seven feet. Altogether, the capacity of the bed is 33.9 cubic feet of cargo volume. Additionally, there is a lockable, watertight storage compartment underneath the floor which measures 7.3 cubic feet. This section is especially neat if you’re an avid golfer, as it perfectly fits a set of golf clubs. However, you can store anything you need to keep away from moisture.
All trims have an eight-inch touchscreen compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which means you can connect your smartphone to the system in the truck. Higher trims feature an eight-speaker stereo, while the base levels enjoy a seven-speaker stereo.
Additionally, you could add a truck bed audio system or wireless device charging while the Ridgeline offers two USB ports.
