You are in the Honda Ridgeline
What is this discussion about?
Honda Ridgeline, Truck, SUV

What do you think of this vehicle? Does anyone know any more about it or of any other good links? The attached article mentions a "fully integrated cab and bed". Does that me it will be similar to an Avalanche? If so, and with towing of atleast 5,000 this would be some vehicle. Here's the link to the best article I can find on it:
#2 of 2744 Is it Pilot based?

I remember seeing a photo in a car rag of a chopped pilot converted to a pickup (photoshop maybe?) a few months ago. This truck looks larger then that. With 5K lb towing, there's gotta be a BIG V6 in there.
#3 of 2744 Spoke to the Dealer

I called the salesman that sold me my Pilot and he had a little info. Says that it is Pilot-based, will be built alongside the Pilot. Is an '05 model to be delivered around the first of '05. He said it would resemble what Subaru did to the Baja. The length is expected to be a bit longer than the Pilot, using the Odyssey platform, possibly stretched. Most importantly, would it be just a Pilot with a bed or more like an Avalanche and that question was unanswered at this point.
Knowing Honda, I would expect it to be equally as handy-dandy as the Avalanche. But that remains to be seen at this point.
#4 of 2744 Towing with Pilot

What is the Honda Pilot's towing capability? How do you like your pilot? I've never been in one.

People are going to think that this will be an F-150 replacement. No way!

I don't think anyone thinks that. However, I think it will hurt SportTrac sales. That model is baased on a platform atleast five years old. I think this vehicle will have the same capabilities and a much more refined package. Not to mention Honda reliability. If it has Avalanche like capabilties, I don't know why any one would by a SportTrac.

Honda quality, reliability, durability, Avalanche flexibility, SporTrac prices. Here's a hit!

where do you guys see that it has avalanche abilities?

The description hints at it and the picture seems to show it, although I admit not clearly. To me it appears the seats are folded down. I requested the brochure and hope it will clarify it.
