I plan on keeping my 2007 for 4 years. I would like to see a Ridgeline offered in Midnight blue ---really dark. What color would you like to see honda come out with.

Since you're on the subject of blues, Honda should take some color cues from their Japanese counterpart Toyota and come out with this color: Indigo Ink Pearl

A Dark Cherry Pearl that does not show dirt would be my number one choice.

For my next Ridgeline, I would like the blue on the Tacoma of Andy's post.

How about the Tangerine Metallic?!!

I'd buy one of those - with matte black accents (fender flares, bumper trim, wheels, etc)

I'll second the request for Tangerine metallic. That would be my personal choice....

I would also like to see a "White Pearl metallic" similar to what you see on some of the Lexus and Infinity models. This is my wife's favorite....

I would like to see a dark green, like the skin of a dark avacado or a dark spruce green, green enough to know it is green and not black.

Here is hondas site for their colors.They update it each year. http://www.in.honda.com/********/content/aas/as02/ml.reaas02a.honda_exterior_colors.htm

You can't give a link to a page that is hidden behind a password protected site. Just doesn't work.

Best bet, is to copy it to MS Word or something and then work with it then.

There's a kind of pearl white that I've seen on Avalanches that would look cool... (About the only thing I like about 'Lanches, BTW...)

PLUM CRAZY!!!!!!!

I have always wanted a vehicle in that color. Unfortunately, my Ridge does not have a HEMI :( .

Hmmm..............Transplant a crate Hemi into a transverse mount engine compartment...........I wish I had been born rich instead of so good looking :cool:

...or maybe the name of a pornstar:eek:

I would like to see a nice metallic brown color. Toyota has a great color on the new Tundra called pyrite mica. My friend just bought one; very nice.
No he didn't buy a Ridgeline. He wanted one but the vehicle didn't fit his mission as he has to pull a four place horse trailer.

How about Kiwi Green like my old Element was. I liked that color because it really stood out!

It's already a Honda color like Tangerine, so it shouldn't be too hard to put it on a RL.

I don't know if I have a clue what that color looks like.... As far as the second part... If I had the money I would not put in a hemi, but would put in a honda v8 racing engine...

The 'burnt' orange (like the Element or Chevy vehicles) is a color I like. And perhaps some type of gold. I do like the midnight blue too.

another vote for yellow banana.
though it would be awesome if they could come up with a two color combo : yell/blck,- indigo ink pearl/darkgrey. Then I will be first one in line.

Chocolate Rain, but spell it Chocolate Rayne......sounds like a rock band......

I'm not on the boat with the name but I like the idea of a darker brown (mid 80's chevy trucks don't remeber the color name?) or even the darker metallic tan popular in the 90's got that name Autumnwood. Last vote Pewter that was in between silver and dark grey all three great for not showing dirt. :)

White will always be favorite thought just want grey for interior so guess when I get my RL it will be Billet silver for me!

By the way kinda like the 07 green kinda looks like a brown in some light. Anybody got one does it get really hot like black or nimbus and how about hiding dirt or sctratches?

2nd on candy apple red. Every manufacturer has a candy apple red. Why doesn't Honda? If I couldn't have gotten Redrock, I wouldn't own a Ridgeline. I told my dealer this up front. It was Redrock RTL S/R with the brown/olive interior or it was Sporttrac time. It took em' a week to produce one but they got it! :)

I'm lovin' this package, especially this color green. I would also take it in that burn orange or tangerine color. Would match the colors of my favorite skis!! I'd even take the bikes on the back! Pretty cool to have'em match as your truckin' down the road! lol

a fantastic color of silver and gold pigments in the paint job. It was also $200.00 extra.:) :)

The Root Beer color thats on the Honda Element. If that color had been on the Rideline we would have got it. At the Washington DC auto show in the Honda section I noticed alot of people going over to the Element that had the Root Beer color.

I'd like to see various colors, or packages, available.

Ridgeline Street Runner:
Two tone job with silver above body line, separated from lower black with painted metallic pinstripe, with 20" wheels different front and rear fascias. SLIGHT suspension modifications for street running and maybe no VTM-4 lock. Made for the streets.

Ridgeline Flare:
One wild, limited edition (1 for each Honda dealership), Ridgeline. Same fascia as the Street Runner but a pure white front that blends seamlessly into the fire red on the back with a yellow blend in between. It would look like a falling meteor. Flat black 20" wheels and fully loaded entertainment system inside.

Standard Colors:
Seaside Blue - A pure blue color, with a slight tinge of light green to give the truck a very light teal or turquoise appearance.
Hardrock Red - A bright, pure, visually stunning red.
Monster Truck Green - The name I'd give the color on the off-road concept vehicle.
Dusk Sky Blue - A darkened blue color that at night looks black, but in the daylight looks more like a dark blue. Several shades lighter then Midnight Blue.
Corruption Red - A red color, but slightly darkened and similar to the Redrock Red but less brown to it. More of a slight bluish tinge to have a very slight purple like color in some light.

Okay, more colors:

Demon Green: A green similar to the Aberdeen Green Metallic, but would have more of the green base and a lighter metallic coat.
Midnight Phantom Black: A dark, dark black with an almost matte appearance with matching wheels, and a blacked out look with an additional appearance package
Hardrock Red: A pure, unadulterated, eye seeringly bright red color. I like that name.
Love Lips Pink: Just that. A low volume production pink color, just to satisfy "those" people.
Hot Chase Blue: A blue similar to that lighter blue on the Tacoma (Steel Blue Mica).

I'd be thrilled if they merely offered the same colors as the Pilot or Oddy. I love that dark grey/blue color. Would have gotten that except the dark grey on the RL is greenish and not the same. I hope they keep coming out with these dark candy apple red colors. So gorgeous. Oh, and I'd like those white pearl colors the other companies have. Like the one on Lexus. But keep the basic white too. I love the Honda white. Other companies whites just aren't so... "white".

Toyota's Sun Fusion Yellow (found on their 2007-8 FJ Cruizer)
Honda's own Tangerine Orange
Magnolia - My favorite. I've had a couple of my cars reprayed in a magnolia laquer which just looks rich on almost any vehicle, and for those that don't know, there is a huge difference between Honda's refridgerator white and a magnolia.

If I were in the market to buy one, and found one in one of those colors, then I wuldn't hesitate to buy it. With my choice of favs in this order:

Magnolia
Sun Fusion Yellow
Honda's Tangerine Orange

Honda has done a great job with the new Accord colors for 2008. Some of them would go great on the RL. I like the Mystic Green Metallic, Polished Metal Metallic, and the Alabaster Silver Metallic. I really think the Green would be great on the RL since it is one of those colors that looks Silver or Gray depending on the lighting. Here is the Green on the new Accord.:)

If that's not possible, then I'd really love a magnolia deep laquer hand rubbed finish.

While I was focused on the 2007 Ford Sport Trac, my color of choice was Dark Blue Pearl Metallic. Awesome color! I have no regrets in purchasing my Ridgeline because the Dark Cherry Pearl was my second color choice, even in the Sport Trac land, but I would love to see a Dark Blue added to the lineup in 2011 when it possibly undergoes a skin change.
