All-New Honda Ridgeline Will Debut Within Two Years

  • Design sketch reveals styling direction for Next-Gen Honda truck
  • Current Ridgeline production will end mid-2014
  • Sales of Ridgeline up 29 percent in 2013

An all-new Honda Ridgeline pickup truck will come to market in less than two years and, today, Honda shared a sketch expressing the new truck’s styling direction. Honda also confirmed that production of the current Ridgeline (http://automobiles.honda.com/ridgeline/), built exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC, in Lincoln, Alabama, will conclude in mid-2014.

The Honda Ridgeline broke new ground in the American pickup market with its unique design featuring a spacious five-passenger cabin, smooth ride and handling, and half-ton truck capability. The first truck of its kind to be built on a closed-box unibody platform, the Ridgeline introduced innovative new features to the pickup segment, such as its large In-Bed Trunk® and dual-action tailgate.Like the innovative first-generation model that earned 2006 North American Truck of the Year and Motor Trend Truck of the Year honors after its fall 2005 debut, the next-gen Ridgeline is being designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas, Inc. at its Los Angeles and Ohio R&D centers.

“The next generation Ridgeline will build on Honda’s role in creating new value with a new take on advancing form and function in the truck segment,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With a clear path forward, Ridgeline will play an even more important role in our future product portfolio and strengthen an already class-leading lineup of light trucks.”

Sales of Ridgeline have enjoyed strong momentum in 2013, strengthened recently by the introduction of a new top-of-the-line Special Edition model for 2014, with sales totaling 16,160 units through the first 11 months of the year, an increase of 29 percent.

Honda Ridgeline is Easy Car to Buy, Own

There are lots of good reasons to buy the Honda Ridgeline, but we hadn’t heard this one before: it’s easy to buy.

Yes, according to this article, “The Ridgeline is also one of the easiest pickups to buy. It only comes in one style — a four-door with a five-foot bed, a 3.5-liter V6, a five-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive with a locking center differential. It’s a good, practical package that meets most needs, even if some other pickups can be configured for more power, better mileage, or wilderness trips.”

And you know, that’s a very legitimate reason. How many of us start sweating or getting anxious when we start thinking about buying a new vehicle because there are just so many darn options? You do some research, talk to your friends, do more research, narrow it down to a couple, intensely research those, but then you start thinking about all the different trim levels and options with each of those and it’s easy to see why many people simply flip a coin as to which car to buy towards the end (kidding).

The options that come with the basic Honda Ridgeline are the options that satisfy most people’s wants and needs for a truck. It’s the perfect urban hauler with enough room in the bed to move stuff around, but also enough room inside to keep passengers and the driver comfortable.

It also doesn’t feel like a gas-guzzling tank rumbling down the road while you’re driving it.

“The Honda Ridgeline is a great truck for most people,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “It can move, haul, and tow most stuff that people want to and it’s very driveable. People love driving the Honda Ridgeline because it feels like a car. It’s just more comfortable for most people.”

Honda Ridgeline is a Truck for Non-Truck Buyers

Honda has vehicles for everyone. We even have a truck for non-truck buyers.

The Honda Ridgline is described that way in this article, but what does that mean? “To us, that translates into being a bit more comfortable, easier to get into and…well… less truck-like. It’s not that we have anything against full-size trucks, they are amazing with all their capabilities and there are models that are plush and comfortable, but they are just so…big.”

Don’t get us wrong, the Ridgeline has the necessary power and strength of a “regular” truck with it’s 250-hp 3.5-liter SOHC VTEC V-6 engine. It has a payload capacity of 1,500 pounds and towing capability of 5,000. Another great “truck” feature is the bed, which is big enough for most people’s transporting needs that you may not want inside the vehicle (dirt, wood, garbage, etc.).

But some one of the things we love the most is the least truck-like: the interior. “With its four doors and large rear seat, the Ridgeline easily carries five adults in a space that’s about 10 cubic feet larger than the interior of a Honda Accord and the same size as a Mercedes S-Class sedan. The rear seats are split 40/60 with the bottom cushions folding up to allow cargo to be easily stacked on the floor when more cargo space is needed. The interior also has plenty of handy places in the doors and center console for the must-have’s you can’t leave home without.”

Most people who aren’t stuck on the idea of a traditional truck love the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, even Consumer Reports listed it as their favorite compact pick up.

“When people need a truck, they don’t often think of Honda first,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda. “But the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is a really a dark horse. You just have to give it a chance. Take it for a test drive and think about what your actual needs are. You’ll find that Ridgline is probably a great fit for you.”

Honda Ridgeline Best Truck for Winter Driving

When we think of safe vehicles for driving in winter conditions (you know, snow, ice, cold rain, etc.), our minds often go to trucks. They are big, they are safe (and also good at pulling smaller cars out of ditch), but not all trucks are created equal when it comes to driving in winter weather.

In fact, this writer for Torquenews.com declared that the “Honda Ridgeline Outperforms Chevy, Dodge 4×4 in winter driving conditions.”

According to this writer, “I followed one for a few miles on Monday and was amazed by its obvious exceptional handling as well as skid and slip-free starting and stopping. Both, without the benefit of snow cables or chains…Honda’s success in superior off-road, snow and muddy condition ride and handling comes via the Ridgeline’s exclusive (VTM-4) Variable Torque Management 4 wheel drive system and lock control. No one else in the industry has it. The aforementioned allows the driver by the push of a button to lock the rear differential for up to 18 mph in forward or reverse. No one else in the industry offers this system as a standard feature on a light truck. Stuck in the snow, bogged in the mud, Ridgeline will work its way out of the hole.”

That’s some pretty high praise from a reliable source: the Honda Ridgeline outperforms other trucks in winter driving. And here in the Pacific Northwest we’ve already had our fair share of winter conditions with temperatures in the teens and snow throughout the region.

There won’t be any new Honda Ridgelines for two years, so if you want to check out the 2014 Honda Ridgeline for your winter driving needs, stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership before they are all gone!

Honda Ridgeline to Reappear in Two Years

2014 Honda Ridgeline is Versatile, Functional Truck

The Honda Ridgeline broke the truck mold when it hit the market in 2005… and the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is no different as one of the most flexible trucks on the market.

According to this article, “As with previous models, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with one of the most versatile truck beds available. The sloped sides of the bed are still present and help the Ridgeline to stand out among its competitors. Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the dual-action tailgate is also present in the new model. The class-exclusive tailgate not only swings down like typical tailgates, but it also swings open like a door, making it easier to access the truck bed and lockable in-bed trunk—another one-of-a-kind feature found in the back of the Ridgeline.”

With a 3.5 liter V6 engine and 250 hp and the ability to tow 5,000 pounds, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline exceeds the towing capacity of competitors, including the 2014 Toyota Tacoma.

Buy a Used Honda Ridgeline for Quality, Dependability Under $25,000

It is not very often we come across articles talking about buying a used Honda, so this one talking about consumers would score big if they could buy a used Honda Ridgeline for under $25,000 caught our attention.

Some industry leaders were very complimentary of the idea of buying a used Honda Ridgeline. Here’s what Consumer Reports had to say: “While not designed for serious off-roading, it proved capable in most applications.” Some comments from owners: “Like a Subaru on steroids,” “no quality issues other than declining fuel economy” and “amazingly flexible.”

Similarly, research firm J.D. Power said, ““better than most” grades for overall dependability and predicted reliability. Power also notes that it is its highest-ranked truck for quality, performance and design. Owners like its versatile storage/cargo-carrying features, but have misgivings about the Ridgeline’s lack of power and worse-than-advertised fuel economy.”

Since the Honda Ridgeline has a start price of around $35,000, you’d certainly be lucky to score a used one for under $25,000.

“The Honda Ridgeline wasn’t designed to be a work-truck,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It doesn’t take the abuse that a lot of other used trucks have endured. Most used Honda Ridgelines are in really good shape with minor, if any, damage to the body or paint. Of course, here at Sims Honda, used vehicles undergo rigorous inspections, so you know you will only get the best used vehicles from here.”

If you’re interested in a used Honda Ridgeline, or any used vehicle, be sure to go to the Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, and Northwest Honda dealership websites where you will find the best deals on all kinds of quality used cars!

 

 

New Tailgate Locks Available for Honda Ridgeline

2013 Honda Ridgeline

Top tailgate security manufacturer, Pop & Lock, LLC, has created a lock for the Honda Ridgeline for the 2005 to most current model of the truck.

According to this article, “Designed to fit the current platform (2005 & Up), these add-on components will provide a secure locking option to the factory tailgate.  Both the manual (PL6100) and power (PL8600) kits can be purchased separately or together (PL8661) as a combination smart lock.

“The advantage of having the smart lock combination is you have the convenience of using your OEM key fob to lock the tailgate but can override the power lock with a key should your battery fail”, says Jeff Pierquet, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for VSI, LLC, the parent company of Pop & Lock.”

If you are like any of the truck owners I know, then I know you want to keep the stuff in the back of your truck secure. I think it’s awesome that there is now an increased security measure for Honda Ridgeline owners.

For additional information regarding Pop & Lock, please contact Jeff Pierquet at (800)-342-5911 or jeff@popnlock.net.

2013 Honda Ridgeline is a Different Kind of Truck

We love reading articles about how Honda vehicles rethink and reinvent a vehicle category. According to this article, the 2013 Honda Ridgeline has done just that. No longer does being a truck mean brute strength with bulky steering. No, according to this writer, the 2013 Honda Ridgeline fills in the “reality gap” if you don’t need your truck to climb Mount Everest or tow the Space Shuttle down the road.

The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is the perfect vehicle if you need to haul a decent amount, keep dirty stuff out of your vehicle, insist on decent gas mileage, hide your valuables (see “Utility” below), be comfortable, want a truck that handles like a car, and need a reasonable base price.

Here are some of the highlights of the 2013 Honda Ridgeline:

  • Design.  “Along with a full four-door Crew Cab design, Instead of a separate bed, it’s all a single piece, with a C-pillar that angles down and reminds a little of the Chevy Avalanche. We like the Ridgeline’s different take. It’s modern and handsome, and the seamless lines give it a very upscale vibe.”
  • Drive.  “A big part of that has to do with the chassis, which features an integrated closed-box frame with unit-body construction, rather than traditional body-on-frame trucks. This makes for a much quieter ride and allows for a more sophisticated independent rear suspension.If you’re worried about strength, the Ridgeline’s two integrated fully boxed and reinforced frame rails and seven fully boxed crossmember make for one solid platform, well capable of carrying and towing challenging loads.”
  • Handling (because you don’t need to drive a mountain goat): “The 250 hp, 3.5-liter V6 is punchy, with ample low-end torque and the 5-speed automatic is swift and smooth. The standard all wheel drive system is up to most tasks and features a locking rear differential, but the lack of a low-range may deter you if you’re planning to do the kind of rigorous off-roading preferred by mountain goats. We’ll take the tradeoff, because with the independent rear suspension, the Ridgeline rides like a dream, and has precise, confident handling that makes most competitors’ trucks feel like they’re from the Stone Age.”
  • Utility:  “We especially liked the 60/40 split rear seats whose bottoms easily flip up to create a large storage area with a flat floor. The bed is equally impressive, with a dual-action tailgate that not only flips down like a traditional truck but can also swing to the side for easy loading and unloading. Brilliant. We’re also crazy for the in-bed trunk, a weatherproof 8.5 cubic foot lockable storage area under the bed. Made of the same tough composite as the bed, it’s a handy place to store valuables out of site, or a perfect place to throw a couple sets of golf clubs.”

“The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is an incredible machine that combines comfort with what most people really use their trucks for,” said Paul Binder, sales manager t Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Honda has really designed outside the box with the new Ridgeline. If you are in the market for a new truck, you owe it to yourself to check out the 2013 Honda Ridgeline.”

The  2013 Ridgeline is full of comfort and surprises.

“All in all, this is one smart way to build a pickup truck. For the real-world needs of a lot of buyers, the Ridgeline makes few compromises, while providing real advantages in performance and comfort. And no gravelly-voiced spokesperson required.
