The Honda Ridgeline’s design has been updated as recently as last year. The 2022 Ridgeline pricing will see a modest price increase for Honda’s pick-up vehicle. All Ridgeline models come with:
- 3.5L V6 engine with 280 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque
- Fuel-saving cylinder displacement
- 9-speed automatic transmission
- All-wheel drive
The truck has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and a conventional or sideways-opening two-way tailgate. All vehicle models feature a composite truck bed and an in-bed trunk that can be locked.
Pricing for the 2022 Ridgeline
Honda Canada announced prices for the Ridgeline in 2022. The starting price is $45,535. It goes up to $48,535 for EX-L and up to $52,735 for the other versions. But it’s going up more for the Black Edition from last year’s truck.
- Sport $45,535
- EX-L $48,535
- Touring $52,735
- Black Edition 54,535
This truck has improved in the last year. There is only one new thing, which is a new grey that will be available later this year.
The Black Edition comes with a choice of three colours at no extra cost, but all other trims are in “Modern Steel Metallic” at the base price, and other shades, such as black or white pearl, or red metallic, add $300 to the sticker.
Most trims come with a standard Modern Steel Metallic body colour, with red metallic, white pearl and black available for an additional $300. Although the Black Edition comes with a choice of three colours at no charge.
Surprisingly, the addition we anticipated but did not receive was a trim on the Ridgeline called TrailSport. TrailSport is instead available on the new Passport model, which will be Honda’s new halo vehicle.
The Honda Ridgeline has been selling well in the US but it’s been on a downtrend across Canada for the past 5 years. To continue to do well, Honda will need to work on a more assertive personality for it soon.
The 2022 Ridgeline pricing, on the other hand, might dampen this Honda crossovers’ new rebound trend. With well-tested and considerably less expensive Hyundai Santa Cruz obtaining high marks for on-road driving performance, and the Toyota Tacoma remaining more popular, Honda may have to work hard to maintain Ridgeline’s rebound momentum.
