Design
Exterior

A dramatic overhaul in 2021 gave the Honda Ridgeline the rugged look you see now, with an all-new front fascia housing a redesigned grille flanked by Projector-beam LED headlights. Simultaneously rugged and athletic, the Ridgeline leans into the latter category courtesy of five spoke 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels alongside dual exhaust tips at the rear. However, capability comes first in the pickup segment, and the smart design of the 2022 Ridgeline offers more than its fair share. Prop open the dual-action tailgate for easy loading, or lay it flat to add even more cargo space in this Honda pickup’s bed. That same bed is UV-stabilized and scratch-resistant, ensuring it stays looking sharp for a long time, while the lockable In-Bed Trunk™ provides extra secure cargo space for your valuables.

Interior

Inside the 2022 Ridgeline, Honda has found harmony between comfort and convenience, highlighted by a wealth of interior space for those sitting in the standard heated front seats. An available heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated rear seats only add to the cozy experience of the Ridgeline, while a power-sliding rear cabin window with defroster adds serious utility when the temperature drops. Embossed fabric seats provide exceptional comfort, with metallic finishes and woodgrain accents adding an air of refinement. Or, upgrade to the available leather-trimmed seating surfaces for an even more elevated take on the modern mid-size pickup. Not only that, but the 2022 Honda Ridgeline offers class-leading interior storage space—even before you take into account the convenient 60/40 split lift-up rear seats.

Performance

The 2022 Honda Ridgeline offers full-size performance in its mid-size pickup frame, courtesy of a 3.5-litre i-VTEC® V6 engine capable of providing brute force and refined efficiency in equal measure. 280 horsepower gives the Ridgeline plenty of pickup when you’re trying to pass slower traffic on the highway, while its 262 lb-ft of torque give it a max towing capacity of up to 5,000 lbs. Matched to Honda’s 9-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control, and featuring a heavy-duty automatic transmission cooler standard on all four trims of the Ridgeline, you’ll have access to serious capability alongside a low fuel economy rating of just 11.5 L/100 km (combined).
Of course, the 2022 Ridgeline’s performance capabilities stretch beyond just what’s found under the hood, with fully independent front and rear suspensions ensuring a smooth drive on even the most challenging of terrain. Add in Honda’s i-VTM4™ (intelligent Variable Torque Management) AWD system, and the advanced torque vectoring technology found within provides exceptional handling in all conditions. Also standard, Honda’s Intelligent Traction Management System gives you the option of swapping from Normal to Snow, Sand, or Mud mode, so you can adjust to anything the road throws your way on the fly.

Safety & Technology

The 2022 Honda Ridgeline employees smart technology on two fronts: infotainment and driver assistance. In terms of infotainment, it’s hard to beat Honda’s Display Audio System, with an 8-inch colour touchscreen offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, alongside navigation and more. Sync up your smartphone and enjoy your favourite tunes through the available 540-watt 8-speaker and sub Premium audio system, while keeping it charged via the Qi device-compatible wireless charging station or standard front USB outlets. Conversely, you can take advantage of the available, industry-first Truck-Bed Audio System™, providing exterior speakers to make every tailgate a memorable one.

Safety & Technology

Of course, the 2022 Ridgeline offers substance to go along with its style, courtesy of the standard Honda Sensing™ Technologies suite, including advanced driver assistance features such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking™, and more to keep you safe on the road. On the highway, the incredible Adaptive Cruise Control system allows you to set both the following distance and speed for a safer cruise control experience, while parking is a breeze thanks to the multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines displayed on the Display Audio System when in reverse. So whether you’re going forward or backward, trust the 2022 Honda Ridgeline to have your back.

Honda Ridgeline Model Changes

While the 2021 Honda Ridgeline saw a significant exterior refresh, including a new grille, front fascia, and wheel design, there is little in the way of major changes for 2022. A new paint colour, Sonic Gray Pearl, has been added to the palette, while the HPD™ (Honda Performance Development™) appearance package gives the Ridgeline a more rugged appearance thanks to 18-inch Bronze alloy wheels, a unique grille, decals, and fender flares. Rumour has it that the 2023 Honda Ridgeline will see a more substantial revamp, ushering in the third generation of this mid-size pickup.

The 2022 Ridgeline does an exceptional job at bridging the gap between what you expect from a mid-size pickup, and what you expect from a Honda. From rugged capability to impressive efficiency, the Ridgeline offers the best of both worlds. Add in clever design, a host of standard safety features, and industry-first options like its Truck-Bed Audio System™, and the 2022 Honda Ridgeline brings serious versatility to the road.
