At least they had the dog talk a little about the Ridgeline:
I think some will arrive at dealers in May. They'll be pushing the RTL-E and Black Edition hard.Joe,
Do you think we will not see the new RL in dealerships untill May 20th, as that is when the Honda Drive Experience is in Texas. Or will they arrive sooner? (crossing fingers its a yes)
Hoping they do not downgrade the RTL, if it has all the stuff that is on our 2014 Crosstour I will be happy with it. Going to downsize to one vehicle this year and hoping the 2017 RL RTL will fit the requirement.
I wouldn't put the RTL-E or Black Edition on par with the Pilot Elite. I'd put them more like a Pilot Touring minus the 9 speed transmission, idle stop, RES, or paddle shifters. The Ridgeline will get Android Auto / Apple CarPlay which is better than the Pilot system.Joe,
Do you think the first months production will only be RTL-e, which is equivalent to the Elite on the Pilot? There is far more market for a RTL as it fits more budgets. Unless the RL is quite a bit cheaper than the equivalent trim Pilot they wont sell a lot of RTL-e just like they don't sell a lot of Pilot elites.
