Honda decided to give its Ridgeline a refresh for the 2012 model, and has announced pricing for the revamped pickup. The 2012 Ridgeline will be available in four different models: Ridgeline RT, the new Ridgeline Sport, Ridgeline RTS and Ridgeline RTL. The changes to the 2012 model include a new grille design, aerodynamic improvements, friction reduction measures in the engine and a new EPA fuel rating of 15/21/17 city/highway/combined mpg.
The Ridgeline RT will start at $29,250 while the Ridgeline Sport – which seems to give you the best bang for your back – will be priced at $29,995. The Ridgeline RTS comes in at $31,995 while the top-of-the-line Ridgeline RTL starts at $34,830 and $37,180 with navigation.
The Ridgeline Sport (pictured above) comes with several upgrades over the standard RT for a minimal price difference: 18-inch black alloy wheels, black honeycomb grille with black surround, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, auxiliary audio input jack, fog lights, rear privacy glass, all-weather floor mats and black headlight/brake light housings.
Powertrain wise, the Ridgeline still sports the 3.5L V6 with 250-hp and 247 lb-ft of torque. All 2012 Ridgelines will come with Honda’s 3 year, 36,000 mile new-car limited warranty and a 5 year, 60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty and a 5 year, unlimited mile corrosion limited warranty.
