2015 Honda Ridgeline – Concept, Redesign and Release

Although we expect the 2015 Honda Ridgeline get a complete redesign that will not happen. It will retain the same range of engines and design as its predecessor. Mid-size truck market is growing, and if Honda wants to participate in it, it will soon have to redesign this model, or perhaps to expel a brand new model? Do not get me wrong, 2015 Ridgeline will be quite a decent model, but I’m afraid I can not compete with the Ford f-150 and Nissan Titan which will get a complete redesign.

2015 Honda Ridgeline concept

The Ridgeline is completely different than the other pickups, we can say that it is made on ​​the Honda way. Perfect for people who have never owned pickup, because this mid-size pickup truck has the best maneuverability and visibility in its class.


As before 2015 Honda Ridgeline will be powered by a 3.5-liter V6 of 250 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. It’s responsive, has plenty of power and has proven long-term reliability, but does not match the full-size trucks’ V8s when it comes to trailer-towing punch. All Ridgeline models are available with all wheel-drive. This engine is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Its EPA fuel economy is estimated at 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
2015 Honda Ridgeline release
Some rumors say that the 2015 Honda Ridgeline could get weight reduction , thanks to the increased use of aluminum. It is also speculated that it could receive a six-speed automatic transmission. These changes (which I strongly doubt that will happen) would lead to a significant improvement in fuel economy. However , even if the new Ridgeline gets these changes they are small and insufficient.
Also , I’m afraid that the sales of this model in 2014 will decline, because we all look forward to the redesigned model. Our expectations are that the 2016 Honda Ridgeline will get on the new platform and be completely redesigned. The 2015 Ridgeline will hit the market late next year. Its price will remain not changed (just like it).
