I see aspects I would like changed, but I can work with this.I'm not a fan. It's ok and probably drives great but the looks are pretty blah.
I think you may have to go up more actually. Options additional. Black out close to 45-46K. Where I live this truck will be way north of 48-50. Probably like 55-56K. The dollar is not really the problem, import freight, duty fees, tax options, and accessories. They automatically go about 2k more anyways without lifting a finger because thats the way they want it.I see aspects I would like changed, but I can work with this.
I think lifting the truck a couple inches in the front and a bull bar in front
I will be happy.
My other option is the Tacoma and this Honda will have a more comfortable ride.
If they keep the price point for the top model just under or at $40K I will purchase one.
I expect $38-39K for leather and All Wheel Drive.
Black Edition $42K
The problem is you pay all this money to have this mall crawler then you have to go out and spend a whole whack of more money to make it tough looking.The front has potential for easy mods. Honda may offer a grille accessory to replace the funky gray ribs below the Baja chrome dual bars with something less "dressy" and more sporty. I usually add a contoured smoke-colored bug deflector to my vehicle hoods to help protect them from rock chips, and that may also "widen" the RL's face and strengthen the look a bit. A brush guard is another possible option to toughen it up. I think we're gonna see people try different things to change the look of this truck.
