The Honda Ridgeline has always been a great choice for those who need a mix of utility and comfort. It's perfect for weekend getaways or as a daily driver. The new model is sure to appeal to a wide range of drivers, thanks to its updated design and a long list of features.

Honda is known for its reliability, and the Ridgeline is no exception. It's also one of the most versatile trucks on the market, thanks to its unique unibody construction. This allows it to offer a smoother ride than most other trucks. Plus, it has a spacious interior and plenty of storage options.

2022 Honda Ridgeline Specs for each trim level

The all-new Honda Ridgeline keeps the tradition going with familiar trim levels:

  • Sport
  • RTL
  • RTL-E
  • Black Edition

Let's take a closer look at each one:


The Sport trim is the entry-level model but is still packed with features. The trunk is in the usual place under the bed, but it's been slightly redesigned to offer more space. The interior has comfortable cloth seats and a six-speaker audio system.

The 2022 Honda Ridgeline Sport is fully integrated with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. It also comes with a standard Honda Sensing suite of safety features, which include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward-collision warning.

The 8-inch infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use. The sound system is excellent on the Sport, with seven speakers and a subwoofer located throughout the truck. You'll also find an auxiliary input and two USB ports.

The Sport trim is available in both front- and all-wheel drive.

Standout Features:

  • Powerful engine for a base model
  • Latest features and integrations of infotainment system


Next, we have the Ridgeline Truck with Leather. The Honda Ridgeline RTL is the next step up from the Sport trim, but not in terms of performance. Like the Sport, it runs on a 3.5-liter V6 engine and offers the same 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It's also worth noting that the trucks can tow 5,000 pounds in all-wheel drive.

The 9-speed automatic transmission is also available on this trim.

The features and amenities are the main difference between the RTL and Sport. The RTL comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and upholstery, giving it a more luxurious feel. The seats are also heated in the front and rear. The 8-inch infotainment system is still standard, but the seats are upgraded.

In the RTL, drivers have up to 10-way power for the front seats. As for the outside, we now find an acoustic windshield on the RTL, which is made to reduce road noise. 2022 Honda RTL owners will also enjoy a one-touch power moonroof.

RTL owners will also benefit from SiriusXM satellite radio, which is a subscription-based service. The auto-dimming rearview mirror is another nice touch. As for safety, the Honda Sensing suite is still standard.

Standout Features:

  • Customizable seats for superior comfort
  • Leather accents give an upscale feel


As we move up the line, we see more and more features being added. The third trim in order of price is the Honda Ridgeline RTL-E. This model comes with upscale features like a wireless phone charger, which works by simply placing your compatible phone on the charging pad.

The RTL-E also has a truck bed audio system. This means you can enjoy your music even when you're not in the truck. The total audio system includes seven speakers and a subwoofer. The output is also stronger than the two previous models, with 540-Watts instead of 200.

This RTL-E is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, but it's been slightly tweaked to produce more power. It comes with all the features of the RTL, including those fancy leather seats, which now have two more preset positions.

Another major upgrade for this trim is the addition of LED headlights. They're not only more aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer better visibility. The LED fog lights are a nice touch as well. And let's not forget the front and rear parking sensors. These will come in handy when you're trying to fit into a tight spot.

Standout Features:

  • LED lights for increased visibility
  • Added technical features for safety

Black Edition

Last but not least, we have the Black Edition. The name says it all with this one - everything is blacked out. The grille, the badges, the 18-inch black alloy wheels, and even the headlight bezels are all darkened. If you're looking for a truck that's sure to turn heads, this is it.

The Black Edition comes with all the features of the RTL-E, plus a few extras. For instance, you get red ambient lighting thanks to LED footwell lights. You'll also find red lighting around the cup holders, door handles, and storage pockets.

Now that we've gone over all the trims for the Ridgeline, let's see how it stacks up against the competition. In this case, we'll pit it against the Toyota Tacoma.

Standout Features:

  • 18-inch black alloy wheels
  • Red ambient lighting throughout the truck

2022 Tacoma vs Ridgeline

The Tacoma is a midsize truck that's been on the market since 1995. The trim levels are as follows:

  • SR
  • SR5
  • TRD Sport
  • TRD Off-Road
  • Limited
  • TRD Pro

Like the Ridgeline, the Tacoma is available in both 2WD and 4WD. As for the engine, the Tacoma comes with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 159 horsepower. It's mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It might be cheaper, but it is definitely less powerful than the Ridgeline.
