Nope!

I'm actually considering it. Had already planned on trading my car in this year anyway. My wife has a Pilot and it's solid as a rock. The Ridgeline shares many similarities with the Pilot and will be built at the same Ontario factory as well.

Yeah, been waiting to see what they were going to do with it. Was talking to the Honda dealer about them in December of 2003 when I got Princess' Accord.

Re: Did everyone miss this commercial?

I checked one out at the auto show in Detroit. It's a pretty sweet truck. Kinda wish it would come with a V8 as an option though.

I guess they want to test the market with the 6 first. It will have the same engine that my wifes Pilot has, and I can honestly tell you it's no slouch at all. Plus, this truck will likely be lighter than the Pilot.

Hey, the V6 is no slouch making 255 hp. My 5.3 L V8 in my Avalanche is making 260 or so. Maybe 280.

I like it. The trunk in the bed is cool. Not sure how usefull the swinging tail gate would be. If it had a midgate and the hardcover bed panels like my Ave I'd seriously consider trading for one.

Yeah, and that was my point. My wife's Pilot is an '04, so it has slightly less HP and torque than the new version of that engine. But it still makes 240 horsies and 242 poundin feets. nd that puppy really has some get up and go for being such a large vehicle.

Those numbers really aren't that far off from many of the V8's on the market. Plus, the gas mileage is MUCH better.

Either way, this truck is going to kick some serious ass.

Now we know what the abortion of an Avalanche and Titan would look like.

Nah. I'm no truck guy, but I think it looks much sweeter than those two turds.

Re: Did everyone miss this commercial?

I saw one today for the first time. It's a lot smaller than the pics make it look. I was turned off. Looks like a mini-van with a bed.

To me, it looks a lot better in person than in the pictures/videos.

I agree. Saw a green one at the dealer the other day.

Still hoping to pick one up later this year.
