SEMA Show: Honda Rolls out the Jewelry

You can't stride athwart this wide-ass donkey show without stumbling on Honda's modded vehicles. The company does know its place in the aftermarket; this year it's gone after nearly every sport-compact sub genre, from drifting to urban to "unfortunately appointed with kandy orange."

You thought we'd forgotten about the poll we ran last week — in which we asked readers to select from the cars and trucks nominated for North American Car and Truck of the Year (ok, guilty).

Honda's SEMAfied Ridgeline Street Sport

You can almost see the vapor trails of desperation wafting from Honda's Ridgeline. So far for the ungainly SUVickup, things have turned out exactly how the naysayers said: pickup guys would be alienated by its short bed, Pilot underpinnings, lack of a V8 option and steep price tag; and SUV guys weren't won over by… » 11/02/05 10:21am 11/02/05 10:21am

Honda Disappointed With Ridgeline Sales

According to one Honda executive, sales of the company's Ridgeline compact pickup have been slow due to its high price compared to competitors. Although it's technically a compact pickup (actually a rebodied Odyssey minivan), the price is $10,000 higher than its average competitor.
