Just my opinion but I do strongly think you will see a split tailgate. Thats Honda's way of being different. Space wise not sure how that benefit throwing in a load or not.Motortrend also has an article up on on it:
Looks pretty good! Fog lights are low, turn signals appear to be separate and mounted mid-bumper. Similar areas to what the 2016 Pilot has. I just hope they differentiate the face of the Ridgeline enough :act024:
The photos sure do seem to show a split tailgate potentially. It would be a strange coincidence that they would camo it up to look like one.
Good to see this :
Testing alongside this Ridgeline mule are 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 Ford F-150 pickups, perhaps as benchmarks.
Much more fuel efficient than the new Pilot? That's a real stretch for me. I guess if the new RL weighs significantly less than the Pilot, it could pick up another mpg or so. Still, it's probably a little higher off the ground and the front does not look quite as streamlined...just hard for me to believe the right topper would allow it to beat the Pilot's mpgs.It looks like, with the correct hatchback-type topper on that truck, it could be VERY fuel-efficient, much more so than the Pilot...
