2016 Honda Ridgeline should be representative of a new generation of pickup truck models. The company makes a significant step towards a new model. This model was not significantly improved for a long time. This caused the bad sales results in the last few years. That is why the company decided to skip improvements in models for 2015, but turned completely redesign and creation, a new model, which will debut in 2016.

Just after Honda confirmed that the a new Ridgeline pickup is on its way, we now have our first photos of a 2016 Honda Ridgeline pickup. Our spy photographers caught this prototype testing in the desert alongside an outgoing Ridgeline, and although the truck is heavily camouflaged at this point, we can see its overall shape matches an earlier teaser photo of the redesigned midsize pickup.

The plan from Japanese manufacturer is to make 2016 Honda Ridgeline No1 selling vehicle in the segment. Compact pick-up truck offer is not big enough, so Ridgeline should move up in the pecking order. However, task is hard since US market is being dominated from home-made vehicles of domestic producers Chevrolet and Ford. To made significant impact, Honda has being preparing hybrid version of 2016 Ridgeline. That would be first pick-up truck with that engine option in US.

2016 Honda Ridgeline based on the witness, it is said that the car has interesting development. New Design 2016 Honda Ridgeline is characterized by altered roofline that extends the windshield is steeper and more than muscular bonnet is linked to the front end that is rounded with a large chrome Honda logo. The general impression in spite of these changes is that the design is similar to its predecessor, somewhat streamlined in accordance with new trends. This car is in its first generation was the Truck of the Year 2016 in USA but never recorded and adequate sales as of the second generation expects.

2016 Honda Ridgeline Release Date

Release date is yet to be set, but it is now certain that Honda Ridgeline will go as 2016 year model. According to early plans, this should be 2015 year vehicle, but unexpected delay happened. With develop of the new engine options, Honda has been busy with design options and styling details for 2016 Ridgeline. Also, new design will upgrade aerodynamics, with also having effect to fuel economy.

2016 Honda Ridgeline Hybrid

First try to go hybrid in the class was Chevrolet 1500 Silverado Hybrid. That vehicle turned a lot of attention to itself. Both positive and negative. While some people just love it, on the other side were haters. In 2014 Chevy left this experiment, and Silverado went on with EcoTec powertrain instead of hybrid. Well, petrol engine was stronger, was more efficient and performances were better. However, these vehicles weren’t the same class, since Silverado is bigger and stronger than 2016 Ridgeline will be. But, what will be highlight of the new Honda’s truck is handling and superior off-road drive.

There is a lot of questioning about the causes for pause in 2015 for Ridgeline. Rumors leaked that Honda took some time to improve design, and with that aerodynamic. It was affected with big consumption, where improvements were priority. Ridgeline rating of 17 mpg combined wasn’t competitive. Chevrolet and Ford made big step in this area by raising levels for both efficiency and power. New Ford F150 will have around 25 mpg and Silverado claims that will go with 23 mpg. However, these are full-size trucks, with more power for towing and big load, so 2016 Honda Ridgeline wouldn’t be able to compete with them.

2016 Honda Ridgeline Specs

Current model of the Ridgeline is rated at 17 mpg, which makes it one of the top priorities for improving for 2016 Honda Ridgeline. Competitors made a big step forward about this question. New Ford and Chevy models will improve mpg rate, while not losing on power end. Full-size F150 and Silverado are now way over 20 mpg, so, a lot of work is in front of 2016 Honda Ridgeline engineers. Even these are bigger trucks, and Ridgeline is not their rank, but it is clear that consumption  rate must be improved if it want to have something to brag about to the buyers.

This will also signify the temporary removal of the 4 door model for at least a couple of years, until the new Ridgelinel is introduced. This is standard practice across many makes and models, and usually signals the new model will live up to everything you need from it.

Showroom goers will be greeted by a shiny new rectangular grill, in addition to a stylish chrome trim. Although it was not yet confirmed, the headlights for this new model will take full advantage of LED technology. This will result in lesser strain for the overall battery life, at no significant loss of performance. Honda announced that the Ridgeline will feature a sleeker, rounded look, couple with a longer roof. This new 2016 Ridgeline will be both beauty and beast, and it will not let the fact that it is pretty prevent it from cruising through some of the roughest terrain imaginable. You can take mud out of the truck, but you can’t take the truck out of the mud.

2016 Honda Ridgeline Engine

One of the possibilities for the new 2016 Honda Ridgeline is hybrid drivetrain. It is still in developing phase. For regular, petrol engine, it is very probable that Aluminum block 3.5 liter 24 valve SOHC V6 will be under the hood. It should deliver somewhere round 250 hp. Honda will continue with its all-wheel drive system called VTM-4. However, we expect 2016 Ridgeline as rear-or front-wheel drive as an option.

The current model runs a 3.5 L V6 engine, which develops 250 hp. The engine is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Since they are expected to increase towing capacity, at 2016 Ridgeline models, we can expect the new power unit. Unfortunately, official information about the new engine, still, no. Each new generation of vehicles, brings with it the improvement in segment fuel economy. This is another reason for the expectation of improved or new engine. Be sure, before arriving in showrooms, 2016 Honda Ridgeline, will undergo significant improvements.

We expect the 2016 Honda Ridgeline to use a version of Honda’s 3.5-liter V-6 engine that’s currently used in the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey. The new truck may use an updated, direct-injection Earth Dreams version of the V-6 for more power and torque than the Pilot’s 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. Like the outgoing truck, the new Ridgeline is likely to come in only one configuration, a crew-cab with four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission.

We don’t know a lot about the upcoming hybrid conversion, but most fans of the brand can rest easy knowing that the company has promised more efficiency without a reduction in engine power. There are rumours that it will be a V6 engine (3.5-liter 4-cylinder). No official confirmation has surfaced, so for the moment, it remains a piece of hopeful speculation.
