2023 Honda Ridgeline: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

With the Honda Ridgeline receiving a large update for 2021, we expect the 2023 model to arrive without any major changes. The Ridgeline continues to approach being a midsize pickup truck differently than others in the segment, putting ruggedness and towing capacity on the back-burner. Instead, the Ridgeline focuses on being comfortable and versatile.

The current Ridgeline received a major exterior update for 2021. The result was a tougher-looking pickup truck thanks to an updated front end, standard 18-inch wheels, a new skid plate, and dual exhaust outlets. The front end of the pickup truck received most of the updates, benefitting from a redesigned grille and updated air vents. For a more aggressive look, Honda introduced a new Honda Performance Development appearance package in 2021. As a carryover model, we expect the 2023 Ridgeline to share the same exterior design as the current pickup truck that’s on sale.

The 2023 Ridgeline should retain the same interior look as the pickup that you’ll find at dealerships today. Honda updated the Ridgeline’s cabin for 2021, introducing a physical volume knob for the infotainment system and an updated display. Some trims gained a new dashboard, a new steering wheel, contrast stitching, and accents. A push-button shifter frees up space in the center console, while the simplistic buttons are easy to use.

Things should stay the same on the tech front for the 2023 Ridgeline. We expect to see the pickup truck come standard with an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, seven audio speakers, two USB ports, and Bluetooth. Available features should include navigation, eight audio speakers, a wireless charging pad, an in-bed audio system, and voice recognition.

Honda should continue to offer the 2023 Ridgeline with a single powertrain. A 3.5-liter V6 engine is expected to be standard, routing power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive should be standard.

The current Ridgeline is one of the few pickup trucks in the class to come with a lengthy list of standard safety features. Honda offers the current model with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, and adaptive cruise control as standard. Optional features include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors. The 2023 Ridgeline should be available with the same safety features.

In crash-testing, the NHTSA gave the 2022 Ridgeline a five-star overall safety rating. The pickup truck failed to earn one of the IIHS’ awards, earning a rating of “Acceptable” in the small overlap front test for the passenger side and coming with “Marginal” headlights. We could see Honda update the headlights for 2023, but the ratings will likely stay the same for 2023.

Pricing & Release Date

Based on the 2022 model year, we expect the 2023 Honda Ridgeline to arrive in fall 2022.

Without any major changes, pricing for the 2023 Honda Ridgeline should remain close to the current model that’s on sale. Pricing for the current model ranges from $38,865 (with destination) up to $46,295.

The Ridgeline will compete against the Chevrolet Colorado, Jeep Gladiator, Nissan Frontier, Toyota Tacoma, and Ford Ranger.
