2016 Honda Ridgeline

The new 2016 Honda Ridgeline is Coming Soon

The 2016 Honda Ridgeline should arrive here at Community Honda of Orland Park as an all-new 2016 model. It’s completely redesigned and should be a top choice for any Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area drivers who are in the market for a new midsize pickup. Read on to learn all about the redesigned, next-generation, Honda Ridgeline pickup!

The New Ridgeline: Styling and Platform

We expect the 2016 Honda Ridgeline to get an all new platform. This new architecture should be borrowed from the all-new 2016 Honda Pilot, which just went on sale. The new platform will mean lighter weight, better handling, and improved safety. The new Ridgeline also gets completely new styling. It will drop the distinctive high bedsides that polarized buyers in past years. Instead, the new Ridgeline will receive lower, more traditional truck styling. It will borrow some styling cues from the rest of the Honda SUV lineup, like the Pilot, CR-V, and all-new subcompact HR-V.

Powertrain and Performance

The 2016 Honda Ridgeline will also borrow its powertrain from the 2016 Honda Pilot. In that setting, the new Earth Dreams direct injection V6 will crank out 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. In the Ridgeline it could be rated higher in order to boost towing capacity, although those numbers should provide more than enough muscle, and Honda engineers will probably try to balance fuel economy with performance. We expect all-wheel drive to be the only drivetrain option for this truck, like in past years of the Ridgeline. While the Honda Ridgeline will likely get a six-speed automatic as standard equipment, it could also receive the new nine-speed automatic that’s available on the top tier Pilot trim levels.

Features and Options

Like all new Honda models, you can expect the new 2016 Honda Ridgeline to be available with tons of high-tech new features. Expect a large touchscreen infotainment system for entertainment and connectivity features. You can also expect the Ridgeline to be available with features like adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance systems, a lane departure warning system, and much more.
