When looking at this compact truck that seats 5, you'll have 4 trim options: Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. No matter which one you choose, it'll have a 3.5L V6 engine. It's capable of 280 HP and 262 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, as well as all-wheel drive. Also, the 2021 model gets an upgrade from previous ones as far as design goes. For example, you'll get a vertically-oriented grille and a chrome brow that perfectly complements the LED headlights. But what else do these trims come with? Find out below!

We start off the list with the Sport trim. Most auto brands skimp on features when it comes to their base trims, but not Honda. Here, you'll find plenty of features to work with! The Sport trim for this truck comes with proximity entry and push-button ignition, LED headlights, and automatic tri-zone climate control. And the infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, 7-speaker sound system, and is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This base trim is also packed with fantastic safety features. In fact, it comes with the Honda Sensing safety suite. This includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and forward collision mitigation.

RTL Trim
If you want to go a step up from the base trim, then consider the RTL trim. Of course, it'll come with several more features than the Sport trim, which means you'll get bang for your buck. When you opt for the RTL truck, you and your passengers will enjoy riding on beautiful leather upholstery. Up front, you'll get power-adjustable and heated seats so you'll stay nice and comfortable for any trip. You'll also benefit from a sunroof, which will give you amazing views of your truck. The backseat passengers aren't neglected here either. They'll get a power-sliding rear window for added convenience. With this trim, you'll also benefit from an additional safety feature: blindspot monitoring.

RTL-E Trim
Next, we have the RTL-E trim. Most of the additional features you'll get here are technology-related, so for those who love their tech, this trim just might be perfect for you. For the driver, you'll enjoy a heated steering wheel for those cold drives. Not only that, but you'll get driver-seat memory function so the right settings are always there for you. The added navigation system with the RTL-E trim ensures that you'll never get lost on your journeys. As for your infotainment system, you'll be upgraded to an 8-speaker audio system. In the second row, your passengers will get to use some convenient USB charge ports. There's also wireless smartphone charging available with this trim.
Not only that, but you'll get 6 in-bed drivers that use the truck bed as a speaker. Plus, there's a household-style power outlet in there as well. Lastly, you and your passengers will also get to enjoy LED ambient interior lighting.

Want only the best things in life? Then you have to check out the Black Edition trim for the new 2021 Honda Ridgeline. You'll get everything in the RTL-E trim, but more! This trim is essentially a fantastic cosmetic package that lets you stand out on the road. For instance, as the name indicates, you'll get an entirely black exterior trim and black wheels. To accentuate the darkness, you'll get red LED ambient interior lighting, as well as black leather upholstery with red accents. As you may have already guessed, the Black Edition trim will definitely turn some heads on the road!

Available Packages
Should you want a little more on any trim, you'll be pleased to know that there are a few additional packages available as upgrades. The Function package adds a first-aid kid and in-bed truck dividers and cargo net. The Function+ package will give all that, plus a Tonneau cover. If you opt for the Honda Performance Development (HPD) package, this adds a unique front grille, as well as HPD emblems and decals, bronze wheels, and fender flames. Last, but not least, is the Utility package. Here, you'll get running boards and roof rails and crossbars.

As we've mentioned above, the 2019 model of the Honda Ridgeline stood out from the competition as a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS. But what about the 2021 model? Well, you'll have peace of mind knowing that it's received an overall safety rating of 5 out of 5 stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
