310hp, 281 lb ft torque - impressive, but 9.43 0-60 isn't great, and 1352 payload is a little light vs. our beloved Ridgeline.
Keep in mind that 0-60 time is a mile above sea level. At sea level, it's probably closer to 7 seconds.

Good point about the altitude, but is that worth more than 2 seconds?
TFL measured a 2020 Ridgeline at 8.88 seconds at a mile above sea level.
Car and Driver measured a 2019 Ridgeline at 6.9 seconds corrected to sea level.

There are no direct 2019-to-2020 Ridgeline acceleration tests yet to measure any differences between the 6-speed and 9-speed, but I assure you they are fractional at best.

Thanks for the info!!

It's funny how most manufacturers are going for more gears to add better gas mileage and in the case of Honda the 9 speed gains nothing and maybe looses a simidgen. That 6 speed must have been tuned well to achieve that.

Agreed. I can only guess that the ZF9 is either cheaper, or more robust, or both. I suspect the ZF9 would do better than the AT6 if you were on one of the 80mph interstates and no wind or a tailwind. For the 60mph-70mph roads that are more ubiquitous, the AT6 may have the advantage.

The ZF9 does have an edge in City MPG. I would have rather seen Honda give us a hybrid to improve City MPG. I would happily give up 1500lbs towing capacity to have a hybrid.
