2021 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Honda Ridgeline

Serving Mt. Juliet, TN

With the Honda Ridgeline’s strength and modern styling, this is the midsize truck that is well-suited for you. At Music City Honda, we strive to maintain an amazing selection of all of our models in our inventory, so you can expect to find several Ridgeline trucks in stock today. Before making your selection, however, you need to check out the impressive updates that Honda has made to the 2021 Ridgeline.


The Ridgeline’s performance abilities are standard across all trim levels for 2020 and 2021. This is because all trims come with a 3.5-liter, V6, 280-horsepower engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission. While most equipment is standard, you can choose between front-wheel or all-wheel drive for both model years. This powerful truck has a payload capacity of 1,580 pounds and a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.


The most obvious differences between the 2020 and 2021 Honda Ridgeline trucks are found on the front end. The hood and nose have been completely redesigned for 2021. Specifically, the rolling hood has been replaced with a sculpted hood that has a relatively level stance. The rounded nose on the 2020 Ridgeline has been updated with a flatter surface through a reshaped grille. The headlights have also been squared off, and they are now highlighted by an LED accent light that has a solid right angle.


Inside the Ridgeline’s cabin, the 2021 trim levels have a redesigned infotainment system. The screen has been enhanced with improved clarity and elevated functionality. It also now has a rotary knob to control some functions. Throughout all of the 2020 and 2021 trim levels, the Honda Ridgeline is a crew cab truck with a fold-up rear row. Select or all trims in both model years have a push-button ignition, a digital instrumentation screen, a concealed charging station, power windows, a sound system, an auto climate management system, mounted buttons on a heated steering wheel and more.

The Music City Honda team consistently works hard to assist each customer with their selection. Between our diverse inventory and our attentive service, we do our part to help you get into a new Honda truck that you will love. Visit our showroom soon to take the Ridgeline out for a road test.
