Does the 2021 Honda Ridgeline tow more than the 2020 model?
The latest version of the Honda Ridgeline midsize pickup truck will start to arrive at dealerships around the country, including Meridian Honda, in February. When it is available, potential owners should have little trouble noticing the fairly extensive list of changes and updates the automaker has made to its midsize pickup truck platform. However, since news broke that there would be a redesigned truck coming to the Meridian Honda property, people have been asking us, ‘Does the 2021 Honda Ridgeline tow more than 2020 model?’ Well, the answer is, yes, and no. The 2021 Ridgeline will have the same maximum towing capacity that was found in the 2020 model, but all of its trims (Sport, RTL, RTL-E, Black Edition) will be able to offer that capability. Let’s take a closer look at a few things you should know.

2021 Ridgeline Towing/Hauling Capacity Information
Owners of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline will be able to pull 5,000 pounds. This uniform towing capacity is a function of the automaker making its all-wheel-drive system standard equipment across its entire lineup. Previous versions of the Honda Ridgeline offered two-wheel-drive trims that could pull 3,500 pounds.
Additionally, the 2021 Ridgeline will offer a generous cargo bed in the event towing isn’t necessary. The 2021 Ridgeline will offer cargo volume measurements totaling 33.9 cubic-feet as well as an in-bed lockable trunk that will offer 7.3 cubic-feet.
A Sport version of the 2021 Ridgeline will offer 1,583 pounds of payload capacity. An RTL model can haul 1,544 pounds, with the RTL-E and Black Edition offering 1,509 pounds of payload capacity.
Furthermore, the in-bed trunk will retain its drain plug so it can be used as an ice-filled cooler.
