The audio-in-tailgate feature is retarded.

But holy shit, are they finally expanding the bed of this thing? I'd like the Ridgeline to stop being the shitty, unloved, retarded step-brother of the Avalanche and actually try being a fucking truck for once.

as someone who enjoys social activities during summer, like tailgating and shuttling a bunch of friends around to float the river. This would be a perfect feature when you have a bunch of buddies in the bed.

They made it look like a normal truck? Aw. I like my dads Ridgeline for how weird it is.
>>
>>14218616

It's different. That's about the only remotely positive thing that can be said for the current Ridgeline. Other than that, however; it has all of the disadvantages of a truck, basic interior/low MPG, and absolutely none of the benefits. Functionally speaking, it's a shit vehicle. There is a reason these things have abysmal sales.

It's not like any faggot who buys a new pickup (especially this one) is looking to do anything particularly dangerous to the bed anyway. Might as well build it to appeal to the demographics who actually buy these things.

Rear looks pretty odd the way it rises toward the gate, but overall a much better job than the last go.
>>
But how big will it be? Still only one and a half inches narrower than a full size so that it can pretend not to be a full size, or will it actually be a mid size this time?
>>
>>14218644

Small hood is fine. I'd personally be fine if they dropped the V6 and put in an I-4, maybe stick a turbo on it? Since they're doing that with Civics now. That way it'll also get semi-decent gas mileage, as opposed to the abysmal gas mileage the current Ridgeline gets. It gets V8 gas mileage and puts out roughly half the power.
>>
>>14218683
probably colorado size.

>>14218675
looks pretty good in black. honestly it seems like a decent ride.
>>
>>14218683

It's looking to be mid-sized. Which is very opportune. Since the Ranger has left the U.S. market there has been a pretty big hole left that someone needs to fill.

>>14218675

I wish they'd drop the 20~ degree angle they've got going on from the rear tire to the end. Flatten it out, it'd look so much better.

Indeed, for giving up some of the functionality of a 'proper' pickup you should be getting noticeably better gas milage, but I doubt this will. Surely won't be any cheaper either.

This thing is going to flop even harder than the last one, which all the great pickups (including midsizes) out and coming out, and the great mileage and power they're getting out of smaller engines.

With the seats folded down, the Ridgeline will comfortably carry up to five people while still accommodating long items, like a set of golf clubs, under the rear seat. Folding up one or both sides of the 60/40-split seat bottom opens up the back to carry tall and bulky items.

2bh familia, I spent several months driving a 2007 Ridgeline

It handled an Ontario winter quite well, the AWD system works great. Not at all sure where you people are coming up with "LOL SHIT TIER SYSTEM". It activates and deactivates perfectly, and works very well with the stability control. Combined with independent suspension, it handles better than any 4x4 truck I've ever driven. Those niggers bounce all over the fucking place, especially on washboard roads.

Lotta shit talking about Ridgelines, and it always comes from people who have never driven one for more than 2 minutes. I thought they were a cuck vehicle at first, and that they were ugly (first gen are still weird looking IMO), but they are better to DD than any conventional truck.

That's not a secret that it is a pseudo-truck.

Not everyone needs a proper truck if they live in the suburbs and only occasionally haul things

>>
>>14228106

Clearly they're not trying to create a direct competitor to full-size stuff like the F-150, so why do you think they are? That's like saying "HEY FAGGOT NICE STATION WAGON BUT IT'S NOT A MINIVAN YET SO WHY ARE YOU EVEN TRYING LOL BITCH GTFO."

The Ridgeline was never competitive in terms of towing and payload, Honda never claimed it was. It's for people who know what they're going to use the vehicle for, and don't need to buy a full-size truck. There are a lot of sacrifices being made when you purchase something like a Silverado or a RAM, mostly relating to quality and reliability. The Ridgeline is still ranked as one of the most reliable vehicles, and has excellent resale value.

So I would ask: why the fuck would someone buy a full-size truck when they don't need one? The Ridgeline gives them a decent sized box to carry cargo, spacious interior, AWD, high seating position and good visibility, good ground clearance, reasonable power and torque for DDing, and some neat features like the in-bed trunk.

All of this insane butthurt, I don't get it. I really don't. Did a Ridgeline rape your mother or something?

He can't fathom the notion that there are people who don't need to tow farm equipment and haul junk in their vehicle 24/7. Plus he hates it because it's Honda, and JAPS ARE THE ENEMY GOTTA BUY MERRIKAN TO KEEP THEM JABS HERE IN MERRIKA.

>his head explodes when he realizes Ridgelines are made in Kentucky
>>
>>14228141
They need to justify their inadequecies by buying trucks to drive to Walmart for hot pockets and back in time to shitpost
>>
>>14228141
>full-size stuff like the F-150,
Red herring.
>they dont want to make a truck thats why
LOL That's exactly what they're trying to do with a minivan. Forget f150, they can't even do a Chevy Colorado, which might I add is actually an Isuzu. Honda has got to have the laziest, cheapest "pickup truck" to ever come out of Japan. But they know no true truck guy will buy it, it's a poser toy for the suburban mom and inept metrosexual. Nothing personal towards yoru demographic though.
>>
>>14228154
I think this one's being made in Alabama
>>
>>14228156

This is the most butthurt, dismissive, damage controlling post ITT. Your ass is literally bleeding through your pants at this point.

>>14228160

That's even more backwater and redneck-ish, I'm sure he'll be thrilled.
>>
>>14228156
>true truck guy
Oh right, I forgot that modern trucks are nothing but status symbols for wannabe country boys

>it's a poser toy for the suburban mom and inept metrosexual
You just described the F150. Everyone buys an F150, it's the most sold vehicle in the US. And the vast majority of those people are soccer moms and posers

Reality sucks, doesn't it?

Oh that's right, I better buy a convertible Odyssey with no carpet or seats in the back for top dollar instead durrr.

>muh lifted trucks
>muh BROWNING decals
>muh LED strips

I remember when I was a kid and pickup trucks were just a thing you owned if you needed to pull trailers and shit. My family always had F150s, because we had a boat and RV and shit. Plus we camped all the time so a big box was decent.

When the fuck did they become the DD of manlets and fuckboy swaggots? They've given birth to such a pathetic subculture, it makes my stomach turn.
>>
>>14228203
Exactly

Now here comes a pseudo-truck that meets all of their needs, hell meets my needs too now that I think about it, and all people do is bitch
>>
>>14228203
>When the fuck did they become the DD of manlets and fuckboy swaggots?
Don't worry, they'll soon become huge fans of Fisher-Price tier cars that are shaped like pickups, if they arent already and they'll leave the real trucks alone.

how do you work on the engine?
>>
>>14228141
>Not a full size truck

The first gen Ridgeline is 77.8 inches wide. The current Pilot is about the same width, so I find it difficult to imagine the Ridgeline is going to be any skinnier. The current F-150 is 79.9 inches wide. The current Taco and GM Twins are about 74 inches wide.

The Ridgeline has the worst case of Tweener Syndrome I've ever seen. It's a fatter, less durable, less capable Taco that rides nice and it's going to cost about $25 grand as a stripper.
>>
>>14228242
Only takes like 3 minutes to get it to this point
>>
>>14228242

YOU don't.

An overpaid German twink tinkers with it.
>>
>>14228248
Base model Ridgeline can probably tow more than the base model Canyon/Colorodo
>>
>>14228260
>probably
Why even post? And 'base model' Fridgeline has the same drivetrain, whereas Colorado/Canyon has options- and towing is a good way to eliminate the capability of the chassis and 4WD system from the equation, so that you shit point about your shit truck can barely stand.
>>
>>14228274
Yeah, the option to spec it out until it can finally tow more than a Ridgeline, at the cost of an F150
>>
>>14228250
>>14228255
lel

the belt looks easier to change from inside the car than on a regular car
>>
>>14228260
I highly doubt they're going to be cost competitive, even throwing away cash on the hood. But a Crew Cab V6 costs around 27 starting and can tow 7 grand to the Ridgeline's 5.

>B-but it's not supposed to compete against regular trucks!!

Why the hell make it the same size (bigger, even) then? Why isn't the Ridgeline significantly smaller for based fuel economy, price, and parking ability?
>>
>>14228154
It's funny you try to turn the topic into one of nationalism, when japan is notorious for that sort of shit. Meanwhile in the US, all major business is sent overseas because it's cheaper, and all the 'murrican's are also conservatives/republicans and view corporations as gods, who should never be questioned because 'trickle down economics works!'.
>>
>>14228313
It's more comfortable, and people are going to be driving these things around town to their kid's school and not towing 7000 lbs daily
>>
>>14221997

Nah, the reason the US doesn't get the Ranger is there isn't a good market for small trucks. If you have money, why not buy an F150? If you don't have money, why not buy a used F150?

Gas is cheap so fuel economy doesn't matter. Whats to gain from a smaller truck?
>>
>>14228323
So why is it even a pickup truck shape then? Why don't they just make an el camino from a RL?
>>
>>14228514
because people want something that resembles a pickup truck, like how crossovers resemble SUVs
>>
>>14228524
>people want something that resembles a pickup truck
For what purpose?
>inb4 marketed to posers
>>
>>14228534
well no shit

At least the bed is usable

You wouldn't be wrong as I believe they are based on the same platform.
>>
>>14218555
So do you still have to unload it first if you have a flat?

Does anyone here ever read press releases? There's an AWD option. While there's no transfer case for a 4x4 Low Range, it can send 100% of its tork to the rear wheels as needed.

It's a torque vector system tuned for "truck activities". They shouldn't even bother with the FWD one to be honest but I think Honda is chasing a price point with a stripper model
>>
>>14228363
No what I'm saying is that there's currently talks of Ford bringing back the Ranger to the US in 2018, and it's largely because of UAW politics. Since the Focus and CMAX production are being moved from Michigan to Mexico, bringing back the Bronco and Ranger is on the table so that those workers don't lose their jobs.
>>
>>14229498

Ford is dumb. They could maybe give away the CMAX to Mexican workers but why would they give Fords answer to the Honda Civic to Mexican workers? That's a lot of cars and a lot of jobs lost. And now people like Donald Trump with all this attention are bashing you
>>
>>14229438
Nobody here can read

Everyone was bitching about how it didn't have a rear seat pass through but in the press release it said the rear seats fold down to let long objects pass through to the bed

The people here are literally idiots

Are you trying to say the global market midsize pickups (Colorado included) didn't "literally become bigger and bigger ever fucking generation"? I'm sorry you were blind from birth.

>The Ridgeline also will be available for the first time in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive configurations. All-wheel-drive models will utilize Honda's i-VTM4™ torque vectoring AWD technology, featuring Intelligent Terrain Management with Normal, Sand, Snow and Mud modes, providing robust medium-duty off-road and towing capability with superior on-road, all-weather handling, traction and performance.

I'm so fucking mad about this truck. It's not even that it's ugly or a limp wristed yuppie hauler - it's the opposite really. I live in the south, and I watch faggots drag themselves into their 8" skyjacked pavement pounders on the daily. I see women driving Tahoes so massive for them that I can barely see their bug-eye sunglasses above the wheel. Half the retards I know with these sorts of jacked up shitheaps work in offices or other basic bro jobs.

I'm a goddamn mechanic. Me and nearly everyone I work with drives a normal car. The few dudes I know with trucks drive base model quarter or half tons. None of them would drive a fucking duallie to our shop because it's retarded, but bet money that Ted Fuckstick, President of Desk Jockey, LLC had the King Ranch F-350 that's never seen a dirt road.

For fuck's sake, I have the most unreasonable truck of everyone I know, and it's just a base model Ramcharger. It has off road tires and a two inch block lift because I like to drive on trails.

This goddamn Ridgeline is too sane for the world. It's going to fail miserably. It makes me so fucking mad.

Full-size trucks either get worked to death as work vehicles, or driven as family cars. So it's really all or nothing.

Compact trucks are mostly bought by individuals, but those who intend to actually use them as trucks.

This looks like the best mini truck ever. Why did they have to make it a meme and sell it as FWD? It should be AWD for all models like the last one

No.
