The newest 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R is the boosted version of the popular Honda Ridgeline model. There are a lot of changes between these two models and the Type R will take all the attractiveness.
This new pickup is more stylish and more powerful. Furthermore, it will also get the better engine that will produce around 450 HP vs 280 HP that delivers the standard version Ridgeline. We also must add that this model will borrow some cues from the popular and mighty Civic Type R model.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R will borrow some cues from the Civic Type R
As we already said, the new 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R is the sportier version of the standard Honda Ridgeline model. Most of the cues will be borrowed from the Civic Type R model.
The new Ridgeline Type R is the pickup truck that offers very good aerodynamic and cooling features. This is the main features that will separate this model from the standard one. With the better intakes, fins, and also vents that are well placed, this model takes all attractiveness.
The three-section lower grille of the Type R model and the blacked-out upper grille offers the same design as in the Civic Type R. The red Honda badge is placed at the center of the gill and hood of this model comes with the scoop for the better cooling V-6 engine.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R interior will be richer with red accents
The 2020 Honda Ridgeline standard version provides a nice interior with lots of techs and we can expect much better styling with the Type R model. However, at this moment there is not much information what Honda manufacturer will add new of the techs to the Type R. From some rumors the company will use red accents on everything. We can expect red accents use from the seats and the door panels to the dash and steering wheel. Furthermore, this interior styling will separate this model from the standard one.
Also, the buyers can expect heavily bolstered front seats that will be more comfortable with the leather material. The second row of this pickup will not separate from the front and we can expect same black leather with red contrast stitching.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R can easily produce 450 HP
The newest 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R will definitively boost performance from the standard Ridgeline version. The version of Ridgeline that doesn’t have R badge comes with the 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 280 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 262 pound-feet of torque at 4,700 rpm. However, the Type R needs more power and we can expect as per the update same engine that is turbocharged.
From some rumors, this engine will be able to deliver around 450 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque from this setup. This torque number is equally with the powerful and mighty Civic Type R that is capable to accelerates from 0 to 60 in just 4,9 sec. Some predictions are that the top speed of the new Type R truck will be 170 mph. We can also expect great fuel economy as the AWD system.

As per the latest updates, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R will be $6,500 more than the range-topping trim Black Edition. The current Honda Ridgeline Black Edition cost $43,000. Furthermore, the MSRP just under $50,000 seems a reasonable price for the model that can produce 450-horsepower and offers AWD system. The release of the 2020 Honda Ridgeline Type R pickup truck will be at the middle of 2019.
