I am ready to buy but, I can't make up my mind if I want blue or green. Any comments out there. :confused:

Perhaps you should base your decision on the interior color. The green has a distinctive 2-toned olive interior, while the blue has a bit more of a conservative grey.


Good luck!

I am leaning toward green, but I wonder if the blue will show less dirt. I had a blue truck about the same color 10 years ago and it always seemed to stay clean vs my wife had a black ex acord and it was dirty 30 minutes after it was washed. I just wonder if the green will be that way?

I would recommend blue, the blue model has gray seats instead of olive. I thought the two tone gray seats were more attractive.

That what I have in my silver ridgeline.

Blue or green, I was in the same situation.

This may sound silly but I chose blue because I like the dash color better and that is what I will be looking at. I really don't care how it looks to others when I am the one driving.


But I actually think that the green will look cleaner since it is "earth" tone green. The other thing is that the green is more unique since it is only on the higher trim models.

I saw my first green one in a showroom last weekend while waiting for my RedRock Pearl to be delivered (needed a "fix" you know?) and was very surprised that I liked it so much. All but 2 vehicles in my life have been red and never a green one. I think it's quite distinctive and thought the interior went quite well with it. Counterpoint: a friend that was with me at the time thought it looked too "military-ish".

I had the same thought on the green being military looking. But the gold flake in the paint looks really cool.

Sill on the fence. :confused:

Hey Ridge, are those pictures of your truck retouched or enhanced? Your blue sure looks different than honda pics :confused:

Green, definitely. This is the same question I was weighing before I bought mine, but the interior dash color is awesome looking as well as complimentary to the green exterior. In addition the dash coloring will definitely hide dirt and dash fuzz much better than the charcoal and equally well as the tan.

The green also looks different depending how the light hits it, how sunny or cloudy it is...giving it more personality. The blue is nice too, however I do not like the interior as much.

I'd go with whatever you like because you are the one that will be driving it.As far as dirt on the paint they all get the same amount on them. Of course you can see the dirt on darker colors, but IMO I want to know when my truck is dirty. You got to keep it clean so it will look good a long time.

The blue on the Honda website does not look like the blue I have. In person it looks like more of a dark gray. When my salesman e-mailed me the photos of the truck on the lot. It looked teal blue, and I wasn't interested until I saw it in person, then I loved it. It looks different in different intensity light (ie color temperature). I did not alter the color, but did adjust contrast a little. Other owners of this color could attest to whether I got it right or not. I'll let them be the judge. Sometimes it looks more blue, but typically it seems more gun metal to me. By your question, are saying you like the blue better in my photo than their website?

If your able to do what i do sometimes, and stalk the Ridgeline on sundays when dealer is closed. :) Stop by your local gas station, grab a fountin drink, filler-up with your choice. and head on down to the local dealer. and SIT around your color choices. bring your sunglasses and get comfortable, cause your not doing anything wrong. just look at it, move look some more STARE at your future purcase :eek: then don't look at one for a few days, go back if they still there and then one color normaly hits u over another. hard to describe but it just happens ;)
