The Honda Ridgeline will receive a number of updates for 2024, and a prototype for the updated mid-size pickup has been spotted.
The current Ridgeline arrived for 2017 and received its first round of updates for 2021. This second round will be introduced later this year.
Honda said in January that the updates will improve the Ridgeline’s styling and durability and will include a new TrailSport class.
The prototype shown here is likely a standard Ridgeline and not the TrailSport, as it doesn’t have features like higher ground clearance or off-road tires like those seen on the Pilot TrailSport, which has just been introduced for 2023.

The prototype’s camouflage gear indicates revised bezels on both ends and possibly a new grille. Parts of the interior should also be reworked as camouflage equipment was also used inside, according to our photographer.
Though it has yet to be confirmed by Honda, the updated Ridgeline is expected to swap its current 3.5-liter V-6 for the newly developed engine that debuted in the 2023 Pilot. The new V-6, which also has a displacement of 3.5 liters, makes 285 hp compared to the 280 hp of the old unit. It’s also designed to work with a new 10-speed automatic instead of the old engine’s 9-speed automatic.
The Ridgeline is built at the Honda plant in Lincoln, Alabama.
Stay tuned for updates as development progresses.
