What is a Ridgeline Sport? I have never seen this emblem on the back of a Ridgeline before but while driving through Florida a few days ago I saw a Ridgeline with that on the back end. Is this part of some package?

Probably just someone's idea of personal expression on their vehicle. I'm waiting for the day I see an RL "tricked" out with HRD (Honda Racing Development) stickers. :)

I'm waiting to see my first Ridgeline Si-R.

Those fools don't care if they cross lines.

My dealer called it a "sport" package to have mud flaps, fog lights, brush guard and one or two other options that I can't think of right now.

There is a 'Sport" option package but I don't think that it comes with any special/unique badging.

Well if you ever saw my RTL, you would see the "HRC" sticker on there already.

What sport option package? Is this a new Honda option or a dealer concoction? H2Oman?

The 'Sport' packages are nothing more than groups of accessories bundled together. There are 2 packages, one with running boards and one with side steps. The other components include the brush guard style lower trim and the fender flares.

If I go to hondacars.com and build a Ridgeline, there's no Sport package option. This has to be a dealer thing.

I believe it is at the dealer level. I have paperwork from the first dealership that I was going to purchase from that outlines all of the accessory 'packages' and their prices (dealer cost and retail)

The paperwork does not seem to be dealer specific as there are no dealership specific logos on it.

All it amounts to is an easy way for the dealers to bundle certain accessories together.

The "Sport" package, "Lifestyle" package, and I think one other were on the Honda marketing brochures -- as people on here already said, it's just a bunch of options bundled together so you can ask for them more easily. It's not a "dealer" thing, because when I was first pricing a Ridgeline, I asked them to price it with the Lifestyle package, and the sales guy had to come back to me and say, "Our manager doesn't know what you mean by the Lifestyle package. Can you explain that?" I pointed it out in the brochure *they* had handed me, shook my head, and thought "nice job, guys." Then bought from a different dealership. :D
