Honda may not be a major player in the truck business, but the Japanese automaker does not intend to let rivals at home and other rivals have fun. To face the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma, Honda will launch the 2020 Honda Ridgeline. At first the 2020 Honda Ridgeline was not very successful and had to deal with a car that looked more like a car than a car. to a truck.
Exterior and Interior
2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R would have several aerodynamic and cooling characteristics that would separate it from other 2020 Honda Ridgeline and provide functional benefits. We expect all air intakes, fins and vents to be specially designed, just like the Civic Type R. The front grille and bumper share the same features as the Civic Type R., the dark upper grille and the iconic red Honda logo. The hood would include a shovel to cool the rear of the V-6 mounted transversely, just like the excavator with Civic Type R in the fourth line. And just for fun, we launched the Civic Type R defenses of the previous generation. At the bottom, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R has aerodynamic pieces of carbon fiber. This includes the front chin divider, side sills and rear diffuser. Naturally, the red color of the R type is found in the aerodynamic parts, the wheels and, of course, the badges. Speaking of wheels, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R would come with lightweight alloys, probably 19 or 20 inches to accommodate larger disc brakes. And although our rendering does not show it at all, the tires would be low profile summer rubbers. And as the 2020 Honda Ridgelinee Type R is still a 2020 Honda Ridgeline, it would keep its convenient cargo compartment, the two way tailgate and the trunk in the bed. After all, you must carry more than your back when you own a truck.
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline has a nice interior that we rented several times. Its space for people and things is unrivaled in the mid-size truck category. But the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R would need some fun. Expect tons of red accents on the seats and door panels up to the dashboard and steering wheel. Oh, and Honda would definitely add a flat bottomed wheel. Honda could trade a more performance oriented meter group with a larger tachometer and some auxiliary meters such as temperature and oil pressure. The biggest change that Honda should make is the shifter. The 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R can not be delivered with an automatic, hell, no! I would need a suitable six speed manual and a clutch pedal. It appears that the center console would have enough space to accommodate the manual shift lever without cutting the cupholders. And since it is driver oriented, the positioning must be nice. Expect heavily reinforced front seats in suede, mesh and leather. Red seat belts would also be a nice touch. Like the Civic Type R, do not expect anything to change with the rear seats. They will get black leather with contrasting red stitching, but otherwise they will not change. Of course, it’s not a bad thing at all; The rear seats of the 2020 Honda Ridgeline are incredibly comfortable, even for adults over long distances.
Honda is expected to increase the performance of the 2020 Honda Ridgeline 3.5 liter V-6. In its normal state, this all aluminum engine produces 280 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 rpm. It’s great for 2020 Honda Ridgeline standard, but the R type needs more. Honda could turbocharged the engine, feeding it with more air, while an improved direct injection system would inject more octane into the cylinders. An improved VTEC system would work (me) with a more aggressive camshaft routine to increase power in the upper engine register. We bet that Honda could easily get 450 horsepower and 420 pounds of torque with this setup. How? Well, the Civic Type R’s 2.0 liter four cylinder engine generates 306 horsepower, or 153 horsepower per liter. Let’s say Honda wanted to be careful and give the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R 3.5 liter V-6 128 horsepower per liter. This equates to 450 horsepower and the same weight / power ratio as the Civic Type R of 10 horsepower per pound. That’s a much better proportion than the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Even with its 3.5 liter, high performance EcoBoost V-6 that generates 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, the Raptor Crew Cab weighs less than less than 5,800 pounds. Compare that to 2020 Honda Ridgeline’s 4,515 lb curb weight. And what is a high power pill without all wheel drive? Honda could service the 2020 Honda Ridgeline AWD system and adapt it to handle extra power. The system would also be reprogrammed with a rear bias, which would allow the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R to have a happy tail during drift. In addition, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline AWD system already features a computer controlled wet clutch system that deflects energy to any wheel with traction, which means that active torque vectorization is not required. not far away. With 450 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, all wheel drive and a power to weight ratio equal to that of the Civic Type R, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R could easily match the Civic from 0 to 60 mph at 4.9 seconds. However, the maximum speed of the truck may be slightly less than 170 mph due to the added resistance. As for the suspension, 2020 Honda Ridgeline would use similar adaptive dampers for driver friendly driving. Attached to the R-type driving modes, the shock absorbers would have three settings: Comfort, Sport and + R. The thicker front and rear roll bars, as well as the steeper coil springs at each corner, would give the impressive trolley a more maneuverable ride. braking would be provided by Brembo six piston calipers that would contain large ventilated front rotors and four piston calipers with ventilated rotors at the rear.
Price and Release Date
The exact price of 2020 Honda Ridgeline is not known. However, the price should be a little higher than the regular adjustments. Then, a price of $ 35,000 is likely, no release date has been finalized.
