The 2022 Honda Ridgeline has a muscular and masculine-looking exterior that resonates with most pickup truck buyers. The design language is more traditional, with a chrome grille, pronounced wheel arches, and 18-inch alloy wheels. In contrast, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline has a facelifted front-end design that includes a new grille, sharper headlights, and fog lights, giving the truck a more aerodynamic and modern look. Both models offer a 3.5L V-6 engine producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, with a nine-speed automatic transmission. However, the 2023 Ridgeline adds a new front-wheel-drive option to the existing all-wheel-drive, making it the first Ridgeline model to offer this choice.
The 2022 Honda Ridgeline has several advanced features, including an extensive central infotainment system, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration. The 2023 model, on the other hand, offers more advanced features, such as a reconfigurable digital instrument panel, an upgraded infotainment system with a nine-inch touchscreen, built-in navigation, and a new 540 watts/performance audio system. The 2022 Honda Ridgeline offers ample cabin space and comfortable seats, making it ideal for long trips. The truck's bed length of 64 inches can accommodate most heavy-duty tasks. The truck bed, which measures 60 inches long, is adequate for most tasks and is customized to allow for multiple-tiered storage.
The Honda Ridgeline 2023 is an improvement over the 2022 model. The 2023 model offers additional features such as reimagined exterior, other safety features, and an available front-wheel drive. Both models provide Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistance suite, which includes features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Collision Mitigation Braking System. The 2023 Honda Ridgeline also has a new feature, Traffic Sign Recognition, which provides additional information to its users, especially when navigating unfamiliar territories.
