During the superbowl i saw a commercial for the ridgeline. that's the ugliest pickup ever. the titan is better-looking than this! Its comming out in march 1. Its redesigned from the SUT concept.

^Ya it has my vote for ugliest and most unpickup of '05 It gets it's frame from one of their SUV I don't remember witch one I think the CRV and the CRV got it from their minivan. So the "truck" or so they say rides on a minivan platform with a transversily mounted engine(like a front wheel drive car).:screwy:

They should have kept it in Japan or over in Europe too; but definently not in the states. They should stick to making motorcycles, atvs, cars, and the occasional SUV. Personally I'm a Honda guy, but if I was going to buy a truck I certainly wouldn't buy one from Honda.

yeah i hate the styling on that thing. Honda has great cars but i think they are going to have a tough time selling trucks in the U.S.

Well, I guess I'm the odd one out, but I like it. I know its built on the Odessey platform, but its pretty capable off road. I mean, don't try to haul your boat with it. I am still trying to get pas the fact that such a big truck has a V-6. I think its the same one in the Odessey (both 255 HP V6's). But I like it none the less.

It is the truck for soccer moms.

it wont tow much because of its frame construction and the fact that it uses double wishbones all around but it has a bigger payload capacity than the tundra or silverado(so i heard). i saw one or two so far and they are SMALL. holy crap if it was big i would kinda like it but its like tacoma sized.

It's the truck for those who hate trucks, and want to pay more for less. Ten to one bet you can buy a Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota, or Nissan truck and do plenty more with it, for as much if not less than what they charge for that glorified car.

"...Ridgelines are not, however, available with a low range for off-roading, a V-8 engine, a stick shift or a bed longer than 5 feet.
And the styling - well, it obviously appeals to some, but to me, it lacks cohesiveness and strength, seemingly the product of a team that couldn't quite decide on an aesthetic theme and so incorporated several. Pardon me, but the Ridgeline looks like a girlie truck, where competitors like the Dodge Dakota have the masculine cues that most pickup buyers, men and women, seem to want and which befit a vehicle that by definition and tradition is tough and capable of hard work..."

yea, the ridgeline starts at $27,700, and 1/2 ton trucks of chevy, ford, and dodge all have roughly 50lb-ft more torque, when looking at the model that is between $27,000 and $27,699, and 4WD. sure, the honda has 20hp over the ford and dodge, but thats really not important...

the ridgeline is also 500lbs lighter then the dodge and chevy, and like 1400lbs lighter then the ford (supercab longbed) at that price point...

$27,700 I haven't seen it start for less than $32,200 at any dealership. As far as chassis strength goes I'd pick a Dodge, Chevy, or Ford any day! The new F150 is easily the best truck on the markey now with the Nissan Titan a close second. Notice you didn't mention squat about the Titan or Tundra? I see in your mind it appears to be Honda VS the evil americans. I'd line a Ridgelins against all five other "fullsize" trucks and all five would out do it any day. You wouldn't catch me paying $30,000+ for that elevated car. That is important right now.

A light truck isn't cool..
