Honda Ridgeline spy shot?

  1. No. You have a great car that happens to have a truck bed. More or less like an El Camino than a full-on pickup truck.
     
  2. Until Jeep makes a pickup truck? Apparently you've never heard of the Scrambler...
     
  3. I have. I should have said, "until jeep makes another pickup truck"
     
  4. Except the Ridgeline is priced much higher than entry level....tard.
     
  5. That doesn't mean it isn't entry-level. And I'm not seeing much of a price difference here...

    Chevrolet Colorado LS: $28,725
    Dodge Dakota SLT: $31,820
    Honda Ridgeline RTS: $30,590
    Nissan Frontier LE: $31,630
    Toyota Tacoma SR5: $30,000

    I dont know where you get your prices.

    Honda Ridgeline MSRP:27,700 base
    http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/new/reviews/full/index.cfm/id/38535/

    Dodge Dakota: 20,340 base
    http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/new/reviews/full/index.cfm/id/38660/

    Toyota Tacoma: 13980 base with its top model being 25K
    http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/new/reviews/full/index.cfm/id/38820/

    Nissan Frontier: 15K base
    http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/new/reviews/full/index.cfm/id/38766/

    Chevy Colorado: 14K base
    http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/new/reviews/full/index.cfm/id/38638/



    Those are base for all. Furthermore if you want to spend 27K on any of the competitors your going to get the top model. The ridgeline is priced against the F-150, Ram and Silverado. Its not selling and hopefully it will soon go away.

    Those were as-tested prices for the named trucks. That's how much you would spend to get a similarly equipped vehicle. Nobody buys the shitty 14k base Colorado if they have a choice. It costs 16k less than the Ridgeline because it's 16k less of a vehicle.
     
  9. The Ridgeline is selling really well with Honda fans. In terms of Japanese pick-ups I think Toyota and Nissan makes better trucks.
     
  10. Then the test was stupid.

    The big three, which I have named, the Ram, Silverado and F-150 all have models for much less than 27K and all of them I would much rather have. Not only I, but apparently the buying public.
     
  11. Why, because they tried to get all the competitors as similar as they could? No, that's usually a plus in a COMPARISON test. and, yes, i can get a full-size Silverado for a mere $12,990, but I think we both know that an extended cab 4x4 with a similar level of equipment is going to run a bit closer to the ridgeline's price.
     
  12. then why not compare those to the ridgeline? the ridgeline is the same size as a F150, Ram and Silverado.
     
  13. No, no it isn't, at least not in their extended cab form

    The "Little Guys": Ridgeline RTS, Colorado LS, Dakota SLT, Frontier LE, Tacoma SR5

    Length: Honda(206.8"), Colorado(207.1"), Dakota(218.8"), Frontier(205.5"), Tacoma(221.3")
    Width: Honda(76.3"), Colorado(68.6"), Dakota(72.0"), Frontier(72.8"), Tacoma (74.6")
    Wheelbase: Honda(122.0"), Colorado(125.9"), Dakota(131.3"), Frontier(125.9"), Tacoma(140.9")

    How about the "big boys": Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, Toyota Tundra Double Cab, Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab, Ford F-150 SuperCrew, Nissan Titan SE Crew Cab

    Length: 230.7", 227.7", 224.0", 224.2", 230.1"
    Width: 78.5", 79.9", 78.9", 78.8", 79.7"
    Wheelbase: 143.5", 140.5", 138.5", 139.8", 140.5"





    So, basically you're a poor bullshitter. They aren't the same size
     
  14. Well, they do have a solid rear axle, so they are already 100% better set up than the ridgeline.
     
  15. not being an asshole but I would think the comanche fits better into this discussion because its more of a pickup than the scrambler
     
  16. But the ront is independant so they'd roll still over before the back axle got the chance to articulate.
     
  17. I know what your saying I owned a lifted IFS s10 but it still had good articulation for the set up, the rear flex made up for the lack of in the front.
     
  18. I've said this about 2000 times on here but I'd love to own a Ridgeline. It's a solid looking truck.


    I don't need a big bulky power house truck like my dads, I barely ever go off-roading and I really hate how when im driving my dad's Ram how the rear kicks out on speed bumps. I wan't something thats quiet and comfortable to drive and has the space of an SUV and the usefullness of a pick-up. Not to mention the stereo system.

    BTW. who cares if it shares the platform with a minivan? over 90% of the parts under it have been changed up or modified.
     
  19. Or the Comanche. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  20. that front reminds me alot of the nissan navada. honda pick-ups are'nt too popular in SA.. people would have just about any honda, but not a 4x4 type.
