Not only will all versions of the 2020 Ridgeline come with Bluetooth® calling and media streaming capability, but all four 2020 Ridgeline trim grades will be compatible with both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications. The 2019 Nissan Frontier isn’t available with most of these features available in its aging infotainment system. Additionally, the 2020 Ridgeline offers the manufacturer’s In-Bed Trunk®.
