It’s apparent, the new Ridgeline is looking somewhat Americanized! I like it. Rumor has it that you can expect improved handling as well as improved mileage. With that the Ridgeline would seem to fit the expectations of most Honda owners. For the truck shopping crowd this may be the icing on the cake.
When it comes to value added surprises there are a few notable ones…aside from the trunk that is tucked underneath the cargo bed, the A/C outlet that was formerly 115-Watt, it’s now 400-watt outlet. So you can plug your flat screen TV in now. And there’s sound in the bed as well. (details to come) There’s still a drain plug in the in bed cargo area. I frequently used mine as an open cooler for tailgating. After the ice was melted…it was easy to drain the water.
