  • It appears that we know more and more about less and less until we know everything about nothing! ;)

    Any updates on the actual release of the ridgeline??? Sounds like Honda is going the way of the Pilot, build up the demand, deliver just a few and jack up the price. Not good.

    Embargo ends next week - should see pricing and test reviews immediately after embargo ends.

    Pricing:

    The three thousand dollar premium of the fwd Ridgeline is the deciding factor for me. I'd prefer a Honda but will be getting a base model 4wd Tacoma instead.

    The Tacoma prices out at 26K for v6, 4wd, extended? I get a higher price.

    I am comparing base models which is I4 vs V6, (as well as 4wd vs. fwd) you are right. I need 4wd but I do not care what engine I get. So the Tacoma I4 4wd at $26,500 wins over the fwd Ridgeline V6 at about 3 grand more.

    OK, but man you may be happier with a 6. Good luck what ever you choose.

    Finally had a chance to check it out. Did not drive, but sat in it, played with tailgate action and rear seats. I was surprised how large this truck is. This is NOT a midsize truck. Only had 3 at 37K price, so no interest. Only need base. But there is no dealing. Like the pilot, no deals and wait for what you want to come in.

    Drove one last night - Black Edition - top of the line. Drove very nice and it was quiet. However, the fact that Honda chose to only put the opening rear window and CarPlay on the two highest end models is a no go for me. $42K is too much for me to get those two options. I'll stick with my 2009 RTL and save $30K.

    Did it handle well. Similar to an suv, pilot, etc? Thanks

    Yes, very much like a Pilot or SUV - similar to my two previous MDX's (2003 and 2013).

    Thought I'd make an August post as things quiet down. I just starting to look for a truck to replace my great Prius - as we have moved from CA to CO. I do a bit of fishing and kayaking and something similar to the Ridgeline will be much better for me. Prices seem still too high and other Toyota products have incentives and lower prices as some have explained above. I have not driven one yet but I don't, for a second, look forward to the car buying experience... will hate it as always.. The good news, my Prius is in great condition and with only 100K on the car and the battery guaranteed for 150K (California product) I have time to sit tight and wait for better pricing.

    You just need a roof rack. :)

    I've been avoiding speculating on when the prices might go down in your pricing discussion, since I don't have any good guesses either.

    The good news for buyers is that car sales have plateaued and may even be falling a bit.

    The "bad" news is that gas is cheap so demand for pickups and SUVs continues to be strong.
