Honda’s Ridgeline beat the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz to the unibody truck world by sixteen years, and the Japanese automaker has used a lot of that time to refine and develop its lone truck offering. For the 2024 model year Honda is cashing in on the overlanding trend and building an off-road oriented rugged Ridgeline TrailSport. The Ridgeline joins the Passport and Pilot in the TrailSport model family, each offering light modifications to make them look a little tougher and go a little farther off road.
Every trim of Ridgeline is upgraded for 2024 with a new 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and a larger 9-inch center touchscreen with a faster processor. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard features of the Ridgeline. There’s also a new larger center console arm rest, and a big cell-phone Qi charger platform under the center stack.
The TrailSport model offers this Diffused Sky Blue as a unique color, and I’ll be damned if I wouldn’t upgrade to this trim just for the color. It’s a sweetheart of a color, dontcha think?
