Sold my 2009 RTL to my father and bought the 1st Ridgeline that a nearby dealer received day after XMas. I live in the houston area. I am really enjoying it alot so far. Happy New Year everyone.

Congratulations!

I really like the new color. It reminds me of the Mocha Metallic that Honda offered briefly on the first generation Ridgeline.

Looks great, @DAMOFO. Hopefully Honda will produce more of these than they did the Mocha Metallic back in 2011 (a one year wonder). Your Ridgeline looks great under the lights.

Congrats on your new RL, that color is nice. Looking forward to your thoughts between the two. My 2019 E blows my "06" away but then again where talking many years. Its so nice to drive something new again it only comes every ten or more years. :)

For some reason, your Pacific Pewter RL looks lighter than the Pacific Pewter Odyssey that I looked at recently. Maybe it's those bright showroom lights. Totally subjective comment here, but I'm just not feeling any love for those gray wheels.

Yea..i totally agree. I have already purchased those 19" ZDX wheels like that black ridgeline that someone posted awhile back. I really liked the way that looked. The color is absolutely brighter with the lights. I could not get over how dark the color was until they drove it under the lights and then I was like, oh...that looks nice.

Congrats! Love the color - thanks for sharing.

Nice to keep the G1 in the family - did something similar myself recently.

Wonder if a red Ridge would look good with those wheels? It's really difficult to know which wheels look best without mounting them.

I can see an advantage of that color already where it almost matches the color of the mud we put on the Ridgeline today!

Your Father is a lucky man... maybe he'll loan it back to you when yours is in the shop...

Thanks for posting this pic, I did not know Ridgeline got any new colors for 2020. Got our RTL-E in same color today. Love it!

Disappointed after test driving the 2019 RTL - didn't like the green (looks grey), no blind spot detection, no apple play, small monitor / radio screen, no big armrest, tiny skinny ones reminiscent on my 97 CRV.

Sounds you need an RTL-E with aftermarket armrests. :)

I hated the seat-mounted armrests when I first law them. Two 2G Ridgelines later, I actually like them.
