Honda Ridgeline

Back in 2005 Honda decided to take a stab at the North American pick-up market with it’s new Ridgeline light duty truck. The Ridgeline, although nice looking, always struck me as more of a car than a truly versatile truck. It did, and still does possess some pretty cool features. It was the first truck to incorporate an independent rear suspension, a unibody design and a tailgate that opened both like a car door and a traditional fold down pick-up style tailgate. Pickuptrucks.com has now reported that the Ridgeline may in fact be meeting its demise in 2012 due to languishing sales. When first released in 2005 Honda was hoping to sell 50,000 + units but alas, they fell far short of their goal. 2009 saw just 16,464 units sold, which in all honesty does not really warrant a refresh. Only time will tell, but I think the writing is on the wall for the Ridgeline.

    GOOD!! I love Honda, love my Civic’s I have had and plan on getting an Accord. But this and that stupid Element need to go. And all other SUV’s for that matter. I’ve hated those since Ford introduced the Explorer in 93. GOD, please go away!!!

    This truck (minivan w/ a bed) has been the exact same thing since it was introduced. They should have listened to their customers and beefed it up a little.. 250 hp isn’t much these days. Especially for a vehicle of that size. If it had a little more power and towing, i’d have given it a look but… it doesn’t..
