The Ridgeline is a completely different vehicle from other mid-size pickups in the US market. It has no frame, a 3.5-liter V6 engine (284 hp) mounted sideways, the i-VTM4 all-wheel drive features rear side clutches and an independent suspension. After restyling, the Ridgeline retained all this unchanged, only the track expanded by 20 mm.
But the front end of the body is completely redesigned. The pickup differs from the pre-reform model with a new hood, a radiator grille with a wide upper cross member that goes over the modified headlights and a different bumper. A pair of round exhaust pipes appeared at the back.
