Honda is rolling out the 2018 Ridgeline just in time for pre-season football. The 2018 Ridgeline will arrive in dealerships this week with a starting price $30,570, only $155 more than the current model year. The base all-wheel drive Sport starts at $36,010.
The Ridgeline was all-new for 2017, so no major redesign this year. But there are a few lineup changes afoot.
For 2018, Honda is simplifying the lineup to some degree and will offer nine trims instead of 12. Honda is dropping the second tier RTS trim and the base RT will only come with the two-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the top RTL-E trim will still only come with AWD with an MSRP of $42,560. The fully loaded Black Edition option is carrying over into the new year as well and starts at $44,060.
Honda is also giving Sport trim buyers more color options for 2018 — by adding two new colors into the mix. In addition to Crystal Black Pearl, they can now opt for either Lunar Silver Metallic or White Diamond Pearl hues. The model continues to only offer the single option of a full-size cabin and the sole 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 powertrain.
