Anyone know when it will be available for sale? I have heard this spring, but Honda doesn't even have it on their website.

If it's a new design, don't expect much or any dealer discounts if you gotta be first inline.

If its anything like the release of the Nissan Titan it will be mythical.

Usually Honda is pretty strict about their new vehicle releases though, probably around september or october.

Hopefully they went back to the drawing board and made it less like a minivan but that is unlikely.

lawman....Yes, Honda has officially said sometime this spring. So anytime between now and mid-June.

My current Ridge has been the best truck I've ever owned....and from what I've read, the new one is a little bit better in almost every regard.

It should be worth the wait. I am interested in real-world reviews from a curiosity standpoint. I love my first generation, so I won't be looking to get one.

Looks like they plan to add a FWD version also.

Interesting review which is not surprising. Honda has amazing engineering however the passion/emotional side not present.

Decent review. Sometimes I wonder if I would have preferred a Ridge over my Tundra. I know it would fit my needs better, but since car buying is so emotional... I guess we'll see how this redo sells after a couple of years.

you can buy alot of fuel for the price of a belt replacement or two...I'd lean toward a Tundra on that alone.

Quick look indicates a TB change is about $1,400 at a dealer. $1,400 / $2.2/gallon * 19mpg is about 12kmiles.

No, no. You can get a timing belt changed for $100 at the local mechanic shop. Definitely superior to a Chain that will outlast the rest of the engine and never require any changes!

It is not only that, it is the fuel economy difference (if any). Assume best-case scenario, Honda will need a 3mpg OVERALL bump to nix out the chained option. So, the Ridgeline would need to get 23mpg compared to a V6 Tacoma's 20mpg (and assume a high fuel price)... that is 3mpg at $3/g must gain that back with 467g of fuel.

At 105,000 miles @ 20mpg, the Tacoma would use 5250g and have a bump of 467g (ie 4,783).
At 105,000 miles @ 23mpg, the Honda would use 4565.
At 105,000 miles @ 22mpg, it would be a wash at 4772g vs 4,783

If fuel prices stay low...

Wow, it amazes me that people will spend 30K-40K for a "small" pick-up.

Tacoma (realistically) starts in the slightly above mid-20s, Nissan in the lower 20s, Chevy in the low 20s. Sure, these are 4-bangers but realistically the bulk of the Ridgeline will not even use three of the six cylinders carrying their free-range kittens in the back.

Congrats Honda, you finally built a Crosstour with a useable stroage space.
