Review QuickTakes:

Though the Honda Ridgeline competes in the midsize pickup truck segment, it is unlike its rivals. It features unibody construction without a separate cargo bed, an independent rear suspension design, and an all-wheel-drive system without a 2-speed transfer case. As a result, the Ridgeline offers the more athletic driving dynamics of an SUV while retaining decent off-roading capability, and it also has unique features you won’t find in other midsize trucks.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Review Configurations

Honda offers the Ridgeline in four trim levels, each equipped with standard all-wheel drive:

  • Ridgeline Sport — Every Ridgeline has a V6 engine and all-wheel drive, plus triple-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a Honda Sensing collection of driving assistance technologies. Sport trim comes with cloth upholstery and a 60/40-split rear seat with lift-up cushions and under-seat storage
  • Ridgeline RTL — Leather seats are standard with RTL trim and heated in front. This version of the truck also adds heated side mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, satellite radio, a power sunroof, and a power sliding rear window
  • Ridgeline RTL-E — Upgrade to this trim, and the Ridgeline features blue ambient interior lighting, a navigation system, a premium sound system with in-bed speakers, and wireless smartphone charging. Additionally, RTL-E trim equips the Ridgeline with LED bed lighting, a 150W/400W power outlet in the bed, and front and rear parking sensors
  • Ridgeline Black Edition — Equipped with RTL-E equipment and a blacked-out exterior appearance, the Black Edition also comes with exclusive red ambient interior lighting

Honda Ridgeline Competitors for 2022

A different kind of midsize pickup truck, Honda’s approach to engineering the 2022 Ridgeline distances it from the competition. The Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger, GMC Canyon, Jeep Gladiator, Nissan Frontier, and Toyota Tacoma all use traditional body-on-frame construction, which lends itself to more robust towing and off-roading capability. However, the Ridgeline is dynamically superior on pavement, where you’ll spend most of your time driving.

My first word was “car.” That’s what I’m told, anyway. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with them. The design. The engineering. The performance. And the purpose. I’m a car enthusiast who loves to drive, but I’m also most interested in the cars, trucks, and SUVs that people actually buy. Anybody can tell you that a sports car is fast. What you need to know is whether or not you should buy that new SUV, and why. My life purpose is to help you make that decision.
