We hope all information on this website can help you to best choose cars you needed. Happy wonderful day! Honda waited years before he was the bourgeois type R in the USA, but now that it is here, our lust and yearning for performance variants of Hondas is left alone. That made us think what else Honda could “Type R-Textset. ” Given high-performance pickups are all the rage these days (albeit more for the off-road set), we thought the ridge line is a perfect candidate for a hotter engine, improved suspension, and Some strongly amplified racing seats. Why not?
All right, we know–has got the chance to land a Tesla-branded rover on Mars when we convince Honda to build a sort of R version of the ridge line. Honda purists would yell sacrilege at a comb-type R and hater of Honda pickup would be even harder at this “non-pickup laugh. ” That doesn’t matter, though; We’d still like to see a high-performance version of the second-generation ridgeline. Maybe it could even re-ignite the sports truck niche, turn Ford arm to the F-150 Lightning, Chevy the Silverado SS, and GMC the Syclone. How cool would that be? So what could a Honda Ridge line type R include? Read on for the speculation.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Exterior
Front, the radiator grille and bumper share design cues with the Civic Type R, including the three-section lower radiator grille, the darkened top grille, and the iconic red Honda badges. The hood would have a shovel for cooling the back of the transverse V-6 function, just like the shovel does with the Civic Type R inline four. And just for fun, we threw on the fender vents from the previous generation Civic Type R.
Low down, the ridge line type R has carbon fiber aero bits. These include the front chin splitter, the side sills and a diffuser from the back. Of course, the Type R red Accent color is found on the aero pieces, the wheels, and of course, the badges. Speaking of wheels, the Burr line type R would come with lighter alloys probably size at 19 or 20 inches to accommodate the larger disc brakes. And although our rendering didn’t quite show the tires would be low-profile summer rubber.
And because the Burr line type R is still a ridge line, it would retain its handy cargo bed, two-way tailgate, and in-bed trunk. You have to haul more than just butt when owning a truck, after all.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Interior
The ridge line has a pretty nice interior we have praised on several occasions. Its place for people and things is second to none in the medium sized pickup category. But the Burr line type R would need some sprucing up. Expect tons of red accents on everything from the seats and the door panels to the dashboard and steering wheel. Oh, and Honda would undoubtedly add a shallow bottom wheel.
Honda could swap in a performance-oriented gauge cluster with a larger speedometer and a pair of auxiliary knives such as oil temperature and pressure. The biggest change Honda would have to make is the shift lever. The Burr line type R can not come with an automatic-heck no! It would require a proper six-way manual and a clutch pedal. It looks like the center console would have enough room to accommodate the manual shift levers without cutting into the cup holder. And since it is geared towards the driver, the positioning should feel great.
Expect some strongly strengthened front seats made of suede, mesh and leather. Red seatbelts would also be a nice touch. Like the bourgeois type R, they expect nothing to change with the rear seats. You get black leather with red contrast seam, but otherwise unchanged. Of course, this is not a bad thing at all; The rear seats of the ridge line are impressively comfortable, even for adults over long distances.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Engine
To the meat and potatoes. Honda would have to increase the power of the ridgeline 3.5-liter V-6. In its normal state, this all-aluminum engine makes 280 hp at 6,000 rpm and 262 pounds-foot torque at 4700 rpm. This is great for the standard ridge line, but the type R needs more. Honda could turbocharge the engine, feed it more air, while an updated direct fuel injection system injects more 91-octane into the cylinder. An updated VTEC system would kick, (yo), with a more aggressive camshaft cut for increased energy in the upper register of the engine.
We would bet Honda could easily get 450 horsepower and 420 pound foot torque from this setup. How? Well, the Civic Type R 2.0-liter turbo four makes 306 horsepower – that’s 153 hp per liter. Let’s assume Honda wanted to be conservative and give the Burr line type R 3.5-liter V-6 128 ps per liter. This equates to 450 horsepower and the same power-to-weight ratio as a civic type R of 10 horses per pound. That’s a far better ratio than the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has. Even with its high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 making 450 horsepower and 510 pound feet of torque, the crew cab raptor weighs a whopping 5,800 pounds. Compare that to the 4,515 pound curb weight of the ridge line.
And what is a high-horsepower pickup without AWD? Honda could hold the AWD system of the ridge line and adjust it to handle the extra power. The system would also be reprogrammed with a rear bias, so that the Burr line type R have a happy tail when drifting. What’s more, the Ridgeline AWD system has already a computer-controlled wet clutch pack system that makes steering what wheel has traction, i.e. active torque vector is not far away.
With 450 horsepower, 420 pounds-feet of torque, AWD, and a force-to-weight ratio equal to the Civic Type R, the Burr line type R could easily match the Civic’s 0-to-60 mph time of 4.9 seconds. The truck’s top speed could be a bit less than 170 mph, but due to the extra pull.
Suspension manner, the Burr line would use similar adaptive dampers for a ride that fits the mood of the driver. Integrated into the drive modes of type R, the dampers would have three settings – comfort, sport and + R. Thicker stabilizers at the front and back, along with stiffer coil springs at each corner, would give the pickup some impressive handling. Brakes would return from six-piston Brembo caliper clamps to oversized ventilated rotors front and four-piston calipers on vented rotors from back.
2020 Honda Ridgeline Price
Keeping with the proportionality in terms of the bourgeois family, the Burr line type R could cost about $6,200 more than the range-topping trim, the Black edition. For 2017 The Black edition starts at $43,120. Add the Type R cost, and the hot-Rod ridge line could be an EIA of $49,320.
How did we come up with $6,200? Well, the 2017 Civic Type R costs $6,200 more than the top trim civic sedan, the sport touring. An EIA just under $50,000 seems downright reasonable for a 450-horsepower, AWD pickup with a Type R badge, especially given that most full-size trucks can easily surpass that price threshold without anything special. Then again, we hope that Honda will not recognize and charge more.
