2023 Honda Ridgeline Spy Photos, Rumors, Price – The Honda Ridgeline is not like other pickup trucks. That means the Ridgeline is front-wheel-drive-based, not rear-wheel like a conventional truck. The 2023 Honda Ridgeline Spy Photos is rugged but not weak. It looks great for 2023. In recent years, the mid-sized truck market has seen a lot more competition. The Toyota Tacoma dominated, but the Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon twins were worthy competitors.
The refreshed Honda Ridgeline 2023 is here. The exterior styling is more truck-like, even though it rides on the same platform as last year. Honda engineers and designers were keen to see the Ridgeline’s strengths and made improvements. The Ridgeline is a mid-size truck that does not deal with bumpier rides or other car elements. The Ridgeline combines car-like driving characteristics with the necessary truck features to make it work.

2023 Honda Ridgeline Redesign
The 2023 Honda Ridgeline Spy Photos scored lower in exterior styling. That was last year. All-new sheet metal is featured on the Ridgeline 2023 from the front roof columns forward. The new Ridgeline features a new hood with a power bulge and front fenders. The Ridgeline looks much more masculine from head-on with a taller grille and a boxier nose. Depending on the trim, there are two sets of LED headlights on each side. The crossbar connecting them to the grille can either be gloss black or chrome.
The new bumper has a more stern look and side vents to route air around the front wheels. New skit plates give the vehicle a truck-like appearance. The back features a new bumper and twin exhaust outlets. Standard equipment includes a set of 18-inch wheels. They have a reduced backspacing, which means that the Ridgeline’s track width will increase by 0.6 inches. Honda Performance Development has added a new styling package that includes a unique grille and black fender flares.
Although the cabin design and dashboard of the 2023 Honda Ridgeline Spy Photos are similar to last year’s, there are some essential upgrades. The infotainment system has been upgraded with improved graphics and new icons. Customers may have influenced the decision to use a physical volume knob rather than a digital touch method. There are three trim levels: RTL, Sport, and RTL-E. All trims have contrast stitching, while the Sport model has new cloth inserts.
Accents are included in the dash and steering wheel of all trims. There’s also a 60/40-split rear bench that can be folded down to make a flat area for cargo storage. With the Honda Sensing suite, drivers will have access to a variety of safety and driver-assist features. All features are included: forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assistance, and lane departure warning. The Ridgeline receives Honda’s Display Audio system, which has an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen. The system is standard on all trims. However, it isn’t user-friendly, and the screen doesn’t respond as well as it should. Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming audio are standard features.
An MP3/auxiliary input port, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HondaLink, and SMS text messaging functionality. The middle console must have a USB charging port plus a USB smartphone/audio interface. The top trims include SiriusXM radio and HD radio and the Honda satellite-linked navigation with voice recognition. RTL and Sport have a seven-speaker system with a subwoofer. RTL-E and Black Editions have an eight-speaker premium sound system and a truck-bed system for outdoor parties.
2023 Honda Ridgeline Engine
The same 3.5-liter V6 engine that produced 262 lb-ft and 280 horsepower under the hood last year is still in the car. Standard equipment includes a nine-speed automatic. Standard on RTL and Sport is front-wheel drive. An optional all-wheel-drive system that transmits 70 percent of the V6’s torque to the rear while still distributing 100 percent between the left- and right-hand wheels is available on RTL-E.
It’s the only truck of its kind that can flat-carry 4-foot cargo between the wheels. Standard features include a lockable, washable, hidden trunk underneath the bed that doubles as an icebox. Dual-Action Tailgate is foldable to either the side or down, making loading and unloading easy. The tailgate can hold a load up to 300 lbs. Each cleat is rated at 350 pounds. The optional integrated audio system can turn the bed into a speaker for entertainment and tailgating.
