2021 Honda Ridgeline engine power and specs
Pickup trucks are quite popular here in the United States, and when you take a look at all the different things pickup trucks are generally capable of doing, it is easy to see how they have set themselves so firmly in the American psyche. One pickup truck available to shoppers is the Honda Ridgeline. This truck is seeing a few refreshes for the 2021 model year as it is scheduled to head out to dealership lots in February 2021. Let’s take a closer look at the 2021 Honda Ridgeline engine power and specs.
What engine comes with the 2021 Honda Ridgeline?
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is available in four trims: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. Each 2021 Ridgeline model is powered by a 3.5-liter direct-injected VTEC® V6 engine capable of producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft of torque. That engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission with i-VTM4® torque-vectoring all-wheel drive as the standard drivetrain for each 2021 Ridgeline.
The i-VTM4® system works to automatically send as much as 70 percent of the engine torque to the rear wheels and portions out 100 percent of that torque between the left and right rear wheels based on the given driving conditions of that moment.
2021 Honda Ridgeline design
The Ridgeline has been given a facelift for 2021. The new styling helps to evoke a rugged and versatile feel, with a new hood that has a pronounced power bulge and a fascia reshaped from previous model years. The rear bumper has also been reshaped, revealing new twin exhaust outlets in the back. The wheels are 18 inches and have added 20 mm of track width for a broader stance.
The bed will feature a class-exclusive In-Bed Trunk®, which provides additional lockable storage. Inside the cab, those who enjoy tactile response in their infotainment may be pleased to know that there is a physical volume knob for the audio system. Wireless phone charging is also offered, and the flat floor and the 60/40-split rear seat bottoms help to add to the versatility of this truck.
