"Post-Embargo" Stories and Links

At this writing, the Ridgeline news "embargo" should be lifted in 2 hours.

I suspect there will be bunch of stories as soon as the embargo is lifted. I'd suggest that we post them (or the links) here so that we have one-stop shopping to get the latest news.

Just finished watching the 30 min video from TFL Truck. The only surprise to me was the goofball test driver (Roman?) declaring the Ridgeline to be the quietest truck he has ever driven.

From Autoblog:

?2017 Honda Ridgeline First Drive

"...In a nutshell, the Ridgeline is a pickup truck for rational people. Problem is, pickup buyers haven't proven themselves to be rational people. To wit, Honda says that 90 percent of midsize truck owners will never actually tow anything. Yet towing remains a key purchase consideration highlighted by buyers. Another example: You'll notice the 2017 Ridgeline sits a bit higher on its rear haunches than the last model. That's because focus groups said pickups with higher truck beds looked like they could haul more weight…"

From R&T:

2017 Honda Ridgeline First Drive - Ridgeline Road Test

"...On the road, the Ridgeline cruises in ultimate smoothness and comfort, cushioning away all road imperfections and cocooning you in a luxuriously quiet ride. Getting out of the Ridgeline and into one of the brand-new Toyota Tacomas or Chevy Colorados that Honda brought along for comparison was like stepping backward 30 years in chassis design. On worn Texas pavement, the Ridgeline absolutely erased the small-amplitude pavement ripples that juddered the Tacoma, and the body-on-frame groans that the two traditional trucks made over larger pavement imperfections were entirely absent in the Honda…"

Been saying this all along. The balls from bumpers folks will still bemoan the two rating even though 90% of folks don't tow anything.

Reviews are good. Independent suspension crushes as a driving vehicle.
