Re: RTS RTL RTX - what is the difference?

There isn't a terribly huge difference between the models since the ridgeline is well equipped even in its base model rt form. Here is the differences:

RT: Flat black door handles and mirrors, non power seats, flat cloth upholstery, single disc cd player, no sub, and no sunroof.

RTX: Same as rt except for body color door handles, flat black mirrors, accessory black and chrome grille and trailer hitch tow package, dark gray painted alloys. Rtx only available in 07-08

RTS: Body color door handles and mirrors, raised texture cloth seats, power seats, 6 disc cd changer with sub, dual climate control, 06-08 painted alloys 09-11 polished alloys.

RTL: Non navi model has same radio as the rts and navi has the navigation head unit with 6 disc, leather power heated seats, 06 can have or not have the sunroof but after 06 sunroof is standard on all rtls, heated mirrors, dual climate control, 06-07 painted alloys 08 polished alloys 09-11 18" alloys.

The RTX model is the only one pre 09 that was available with a hitch as standard equipment. The RTX is also no longer available only for 2 years 07-08.

07_RTX pretty much covers it. Here's a Honda link that compares them. Select the Year on the top Right side of the page.

Re: RTS RTL RTX - what is the difference?

On the spec page listed above, 2008 RTS shows machine finished alloy wheel. What's the diff between a painted and a polished (machine finished?) wheel?

Painted wheel is just the gloss silver vs the machined which looks more like polished aluminum. I may be a year off on the rts wheel change, I'm not real familiar with that models options past 06

Re: RTS RTL RTX - what is the difference?

I was looking at a 2007 RTL but saw a nice 2008 RTX. The only concern I have and I compared them all is the 6-Way Seat. The RTL had the 8-Way seat.

So what am I going to lose with the seat? I need the Thigh Support so if I am losing lumbar support that is fine. Does anything know?
