Hardcore truck people probably don’t think of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline as a “real truck,” but I just towed a classic Ford Mustang over the Appalachians with one. So why aren’t there more trucks in the U.S. built on a unibody platform like the Ridgeline? I talked to engineers at Honda and Toyota to find out, and now…
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is very different from your typical mid-size pickup, making many wonder if the Pilot With A Truck Bed is “a real truck.” Well, I just loaded the Honda to near its max trailer rating and drove over the Appalachians with a classic Ford Mustang in tow. The Ridgeline kicked ass. That “real truck”…
Honda announced a second-generation Ridgeline at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, and revealed the finalized design a year later. This week we finally get to test, drive, and apparently even “off-road” it for ourselves. Get your questions in now!
Among reasons to build a front-wheel drive, unibody pickup is fuel economy, so you’d expect the new Honda Ridgeline to conquer its truck competition without breaking a sweat. But now the Pilot-based truck’s fuel economy numbers are in, and they further highlight the trouble with the mid-size truck segment.
The 2016 Honda Ridgeline isn’t built to be an off-road monster, but that doesn’t mean a Ridgeline body fitted around a race car isn’t going to look awesome in the fury of the Baja 1000.
Like many of you, I watched with glee as Honda revealed the new Ridgeline earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s handsome, I thought. It’s practical. It’s well equipped. It has a nifty little storage area that’s perfect for a) tailgaters and b) human traffickers. As David Tracy said, it’s all the truck most…
After two years of teasers we’ve finally met the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. We don’t have every detail yet, but I have learned that the bed is 64 inches long making it just a little bigger than the standard bed in a four-door Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier or Chevy Colorado.
We won’t get to drive the new 2017 Honda Ridgeline for a while, but what we can do is give you, our beloved readers, a review of the in-bed trunk. It’s marvelous.
The second generation Honda Ridgeline we’ve been hearing about for almost two years now will finally be revealed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Specifically, January 11th at 1:15 p.m. EST.
About a decade after the introduction of the original Honda Ridgeline, we’re going to get a second generation of the trucklet. The face, hood, roof, bed, and profile of this Honda Baja racer are basically what’s going to be on the production version, so take it all in.
Honda’s getting back into off-road racing on four wheels at this year’s Baja 1000, with a purpose-built twin-turbo buggy! And it just might be wearing the skin of the next Honda Ridgeline pickup truck.
They're gonna (grunt) make a (grrrr) new Honda Ridgeline and they say it's (muscle flex) gonna be a real pickup this time.
Honda's Marketing VP Jeff Conrad says the upcoming second-generation Honda Ridgeline will have "truck-like proportions while maintaining [it's] flexibility." It's going to be larger, higher off the ground, and "coming in two years." Is this America's next true small truck?
With May 2014 sales numbers freshly published, Ford F-Series lead the month with 68,520, GM nipped at their heels with 64,974 total full-sized truck sales and Ram was down at 37,131.
The Honda Ridgeline has received a minor facelift for 2009 that includes cosmetic tweaks to give the truck-UV more of a shared look with its brother, the 2009 Honda Pilot. But the changes apparently aren't skin deep, as we're told there's also been improvements to the interior and under the Honda-stamped hood.
Honda, concerned about a glut of Odyssey minivans and brand-new 2009 Pilots sitting on dealer lots, has elected to trim production of the larger vehicles in favor of increasing production of the new 2009 Civic. The drop will equate to about 10,000 units combined at the Lincoln, Alabama plant, and the resulting plant…
Remember the transforming Honda Ridgeline parade float for the Tournament of Roses parade we showed you last week? Yeah — you remember, the one piloted by Asimo the amazing super-robot from the number two super best awesome automaker from the land of the rising sun? Well, one of us actually woke up early enough…
