While the Honda Ridgeline is getting a bit long in the tooth, the unibody truck is chugging along into the new year with a decent set of changes. Since it's pretty late in the year for a 2024 model year vehicle to be revealed, Honda is already shipping the updated trucks to dealers.




On the outside, Honda keeps with the trend and adds an in-your-face "RIDGELINE" stamping to the tailgate. Otherwise, you'll find the same exterior styling as last year, with a chunky grille up front and a fair share of black cladding throughout.


While the Ridgeline shares a lot of bodywork with the previous-generation Pilot SUV, all models gain a new gauge cluster dropped straight from the newest Pilot. The updated panel features a small 7-inch display on the left side, joined by an old-school analog speedometer on the right. The infotainment system grows from eight inches to nine, and it's been recessed by 0.8 inches to allow for a more comfortable place to rest your hand when using the touchscreen. The software itself is new as well––and yes, it's borrowed from the snappier unit found in the new Pilot.


The interior updates don't end there, as the center console has been completely overhauled. The cupholders can now accomodate two 32-oz bottles, and there's a new phone tray that can hold two devices at once with an integrated wireless charger. The truck's floor-mounted storage bin has also been tweaked to fit a full-size tablet, and it replaces the old sliding mechanism with a simpler method that involves lifting the center console armrest. As a result of that, Honda got rid of the truck's skimpy seat-mounted armrests in favor of a more conventional one.



At the very top of the Ridgeline's trim lineup, the rugged RTL-E model has been swapped out for a new TrailSport variant. Much like the Pilot and Passport SUVs that already offer the TrailSport badge, the Ridgeline adds Grabber A/T Sport all-terrain tires, along with an upgraded suspension setup that features retuned damper valves, new stabilizer bars, and improved spring rates.


Style-wise, the TrailSport sets itself apart from the rest of the Ridgeline trims with Pewter Gray inserts for the lower fascia and grille, exclusive 18-inch wheels, and a new Diffused Sky Blue color for the exterior. Honda didn't touch the truck's ground clearance, and its torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system remains the same as before. For more robust off-road upgrades, the Ridgeline still offers the more extreme HPD package.


Inevitably, the Ridgeline has raised its pricing a smidge across the board. The entry-level Sport tacks on $950 to the truck's base price, which means it now starts at $41,125. The RTL now costs $43,955, and is joined by the $46,355 TrailSport and the $47,725 Black Edition. Honda's 2024 trucks are heading to U.S. dealer lots as we speak.

2024 Honda Ridgeline Adds TrailSport Off-Road Treatment, Costs $41,125

The RTL-E has been dropped, as the more familiar TrailSport will be taking its place.
