Next Gen Ridgeline, 2014 or 2015? So when is it?

Someone should know by now if we're getting the new RL in 2014 or 15. If it 2015, I may be getting a new 2013 Sport soon, but if it's 2014, I will wait for it.

Be nice to get a hint of facts or truth about the RL. Super Bowl gone by and still no word. I don't need to see or know what it will come equiped with or what will it look like. Just me nice to know.

Joe, any hints to offer us?

Thanks

I'm polishing my crystal ball.... we're still over a year away from a new Ridgeline.

If I were GUESSING I would guess on a 2015 model year in calendar year 2014.

Serious or not, I was afraid you would say that. Thanks Joe, I think??

Re: Next Gen Ridgeline, 2014 or 2015? So when is it?

My guess is that Honda will keep any design change(s) close to their chest.

If a new design is mentioned by Honda now for the 2015 year, a number of potential buyers may hold off until the new design is released, possibly reducing the number of sales in the current year.

The fallout can also go the other way. No news on a redesign may push Ridgeline owners over to other manufactures.

I think Honda is betting that a Ridgeline owner will stay a Ridgeline owner.

If Honda keeps dragging their feet on the new gen, our trade in will soon be worthless. My RL will be 5 years old this spring and I normally trade every 2/3 years. Tried of waiting.

Re: Next Gen Ridgeline, 2014 or 2015? So when is it?

Something that was suggested to me and so far has panned out nicely, was to flip my higher mileage 06 Ridge for a later model year, in my case a 10, with low mileage.

It was certified as well. So I got the benefit of a decent trade on my 06 and insurance against the uncertainty of what Honda is up to with the ridgeline. Now I can possibly hold out past the first model year....if Joe's crystal ball is right, and flip my 10 for a new model (if I like it) in late 2015....which MAY be a 2016 model.

Or....I hang on to it another year or two if I don't like the redesign and thereby have a solid ridgeline experience for 10 or more years straight.

Sounds like a plan. I like it.

Thanks Joe. You are speaking about a release date. However what does you crystal ball say about a prototype appearing at a show or some detailed information being released??

Unhappy Re: Next Gen Ridgeline, 2014 or 2015? So when is it?

I'm depressed. If I keep my RL until the 2015 model comes out, my mileage will be too high and will loose too much trade in value. So now I'm looking at possibly trading this Spring when I was hoping to wait until the Fall for the next Gen,. I think I'm going to go have a look at other makes now. Too bad, I was really looking forward to driving a new model this Fall.

This sucks for me big time and very disapointed.
