I have not found any definite list yet. The pictures I have seen show at least 3 different colors: a red, a dark green, and a silver. Actually, I may have seen a white one posted on these boards but the picture was shot at night so it could have been silver.

Dark Green is awesome in person, kinda army looking. Silver and white both look pretty good, I think dark makes the features of the truck look better though. Not too crazy about the red, nothing wrong with it, I just wouldn't get it.

Dark Green Ridgeline

I agree with the above post. Although I have not seen one in person, I think that the dark green is the sharpest color that I have seen so far.

Just came across the news wire where I work. Honda Ridgeline first ever 4 door truck to earn top government crash test. 5 star ratngs for front and side impact crash tests from the NHSTA. I cant figure how to paste the story but I'm sure TMAC will pick it up. Good news. :)

Honda Lowers Ridgeline HP !!??

Full back page ad in USA Today weekend edition (29-31 July) listed Ridgeline HP at 247 !!!
Is that the 87 octane hp rating !? and 255 hp is with 93 octane ??

Don't shoot me. I'm only the messenger.

AS far as I know, it is rated at 255 horse power on Regular grade gasoline. The ad in the paper is most likely a mistake.

It's not a mistake. The SAE horsepower testing procedure has changed. Based on the new testing procedure, the ridgeline has 247hp.

Well apparantly it was finalized end of march.
It's SAE standard J2723. It's voluntary but manufacturers have now started to rate their vehicals using it.

Yes, thanks for the correction. I was unaware of a bew testing procedure that would alter the horsepower rating.

It's actually quite interesting. If you go to vtec.net, you'll see the changes for the new acuras. One of the thing is, that the TSX now has 205 SAE certified HP. Thing is that car probably has closer to 215 of the old hp(up fron 200 old hp). But to the average consumer: "oh it's only up 5 hp". The manufacturers are going to have an interesting time marketing this stuff...
