It has a cool design but I rather have a Tacoma even if is an older model
it has cool design is better looking than the new Silverado but again those silverados are the ugliest thing I seen is like they competing with the Pontiac aztek & Nissan puke of which one is uglier 😂
You almost had me Doug. I’ll stick with the Bronco,, Honda needs to step their game up.
I’m a truck guy and I just think these are overpriced and never really liked them. Admittedly I’m not really a fan of small trucks but this one has some cool features and it looks ok. Definitely a market for them though as Doug explained.
my 2017 Ridgeline E has Apple Car play.
The back is large, Doug's made a point to say he's 6'4" in other videos. The Ridgeline isn't competing with other "trucks" it's filling a role the other trucks aren't offering. They are tailored the practical use of how most "trucks" are actually used. Most of them aren't being used for the features they have. In my case, if I lived in Colorado I would buy a Tacoma or a Ranger. This is the "Truck" for the people that don't need all the off-road and cargo features. If you don't need a heavy duty, large 4x4 truck with a over 5K towing capacity this truck works. You'd need to be honest with yourself about how you're actually going to use a truck.
I live in Colorado and own a 2021 Ridgeline and I used to own a 2008. It's amazing in the snow / ice and drives like a dream. I get about 29 mpg on the highway at a mile above sea level and I tow a 3500 lbs boat loaded up with camping gear and this truck handles it with no problem. Love it!
HPD sounds like an STD it's too close to HPV
It is a way less luxurious, way more successful blackwood.
Lol what that infotainmentscreen just runs an older version of android by the looks of it
Americans really need to stop using such big suvs and trucks it’s damaging the environment. All they need to do is downsize them, it will also handle and off road better when it’s small too
I've been looking at the Ridgeline over the past couple of days. I wanted to be higher up off the road than your standard sedan, but I don't like SUVs AT ALL. None of them. Plus, a Ford F150 or Dodge Ram is way too much truck for me, but the Ridgeline is perrrrrfect.
I wished this truck body is higher like a Tacoma I would wanted this one 😂
If Doug would flap his hands any more, he would be a bird
At $41k, you can get a real pickup truck with 5x the capability. The Ridgeline is a pointless pseudo-truck for yuppies. Hard pass, lol.
@Wilmar Barrick CDL fees? You do know we're talking about pickups in this video, not 18-wheelers... right?
@SevenSixTwo2012 right... guess i was just paying the additional CDL fees on my license for giggles.
@Wilmar Barrick Truck suspension and handling has gone a long way since the 80's. But a guy who never drove one wouldn't know it, so you're excused.
And 5 times worse road handling... so call it a wash
Doug is the kind of guy that has a "beard" wife
i usually drive around with the middle back headrest up too!
I agree with the final summary
Seems so boring. You’re right.
Plain and simple this truck is for men that are not afraid of the stigma those dudes 5'6" jumpin outta Tundra or big Dodges are jokes..... Be a man buy shit cuz you like it not to be cool and fit in... lmfaooooo
1.5 speed for Dougs videos
Isn't HPD an STD?
ask WhistlinDiesel what he thinks of Honda Ridgeline XD
The front end change to make the ridge line look tough is like giving Doug a leather jacket.
Looks like an SUV with a load bin slapped to the back. This vehicle seems unnecessary
"Crossover driving experience" lol. Gag. This truck is so lame. The old Ridgeline was a neat ride, but the Maverick runs circles around this thing for a yuppie truck.
I cant wait to see how the Ridgeline Type R turns out....
That's the worst speedometer ever
So funny, I live in Santee and I recognized the places you drove
that's what the truck is for gas saving if you want pickup truck but also looking for gas saving at the same time this is the truck your looking for you can put heavy stuff back on the flat bed and while you save on gas too
That the infotainment system is very responsive just like a phone, is probably due to the fact, that it seems to be based on android, just as a lot of phones. The icons in the menu look like android 4 ...
$41k for a wannabe truck!? 🤣 Love Honda, but this has to be one of the worst car/truck deals 😆 Ford Maverick just nullified the Honda Ridgeline.
Maverick? Oh, you mean that little Mexican bulit 4 cylinder vehicle that has zero proven track record? Ok 👌.
if it has Android Auto and CarPlay that's essentially better than any built-in navigation
Designed for the Mafia. Hidden Storage for bodies with drain plug for blood. very useful. :lul:
Its a sporttruck. The options are left out for lightness :D
outdated in safety, technology, and efficiency.
The Econ button on my 2017 Civic literally just turns down the AC. I have felt no other impact to how it drives or handles other than it reducing the amount of cold air blowing onto my face.
in my hondas '15 civic and '19 ridgeline the econ button only increases/decreases throttle responsiveness.
Love my 1st gen Ridgeline. They aren't good looking trucks, but they're incredibly practical. I can tow a car to the track, extra wheels and tires in the bed. Steel floor jack, stands, and tools in the trunk. Fill the rear seat with helmets, duffel bags, snacks, etc. Hit the road. Mine has heated leather, navigation, factory sub, sunroof, etc. I can drive 8hr. and I'm disappointed the drive is already over, because it's so comfortable. Never gotten stuck off road at the farm either. Small enough to city drive in a pinch. It does it all! I do wish it had bigger brakes and maybe a supercharger for just a bit more torque, but I've pulled 6k lbs long distance without trailer brakes and it's just fine. I probably work mine harder than 90% of half tons out there.
Why do always feel like eating something while i watch doug?
My 2011 Accord has a calculator too. Wonder what made the people at Honda want to add it to their vehicles.
I can't excuse a sunroof
...and how do they not have a vehicle to “TRD ify” ??? They have 3 ! and they’ve already done it. This is just like an S-Line Audi... just a couple looks and Logos, NO performance. ...but TRD models are still there. Sooooo once again... wtf are you talking about Doug ??? Maybe he’s too rich off of using other peoples cars to review and people using his site to sell cars, where once again he’s making money off of others people cars! LoL It’s honestly pretty genius... it’s all the idiots who go through him are the real jackasses/morons.
Missed a QUIRK as usual... “quirks and features man” ! LoL The tailgate completely comes off, and that rail where rear seats prop on, once they’re put up, you can securely store the tailgate there ! Kinda like the dedicated spot for removable top in a Corvette trunk/hatch.
Yup.. Honda’s been doing that for years now! Analog Tac, but Digital Speedo... C’mon Doug, 🤦♂️ . You should be well aware of that.
13:20 "You see the little seat *BAR* underneath it"
Truck buyers DO care about those things. If my Ram didn't have heated seats and steering wheel and a power seat I would NOT have bought it.
Stunned at the pricing vs the features on this thing.
Seems like Honda USA is going the same way as Honda everywhere else. Old outdated products, premium pricing, uncompetitive feature set. Honda has declined massively since the 2008 recession and never really recovered as their R&D stalled out. Here in Australia they are basically dead man walking and likely to withdraw from the market in the next few years as their cars just suck these days. Honda USA has survived longer since its a key market for Honda and does most of its own production. Honestly this car is bad value and most people are fine with truck road manners now that we have the electronics packages to make them as safe to control as cars anyway.
I agree Honda is garbage if you're dropping import money might as well get a toyota
0-60 in 7.2 is a 1 out of 10? Huh??
Video is a thumbs up. Truck is a thumbs down.
I would love to have somebody fact check Doug on his cost savings estimates. Like 10 cents for illuminated visor mirrors?
HPD sounds like a sexually transmitted illness. "Yo, I tested positive for HPD" "Dude that sucks"
I got HPD once from a girl in college.
I like the flexible storing features from the Honda. I would like to change it against my Ranger, but it's not easy to get one in Germany. Very sad.
I bought a 2001 base model Caviler. Pissed it has no options in it. I got screwed.
It's 36k base... Save your money and buy a Maverick for 1/2 the price.
HPD trim is the wanna be TRD trim package. I kinda like the new Ridgeline ngl. But honestly I wouldn't consider owning one. I'd rather get a diesel Colorado or a Tacoma. They kinda resemble a large Holden Ute from Australia, I'ma kinda curious to know if I'm the only one that gets that vibe be from it.
*Doug before he has sex with his wife* “Be sure to check out cars and bids…” 😂😂
O look the gay truck.
0-60 in 6.1 seconds = high fun factor. Not sure why performance wasn't even discussed is a "review".
I just stuck a pen up my arse. It’s too far up and I can’t get it out. What do I do!?!?!?!?
Well, rather have that than the silly Gladiator.
Both are garbage
People won't consider this a truck because its based off the Pilot platform.. but they'll consider the UNIBODY maverick to be a truck which is based off the bronco sport platform...
Where do you get your car shirts ?! :)
Funny how Doug’s comments on any Honda vehicle need to be trash, even if he has to force the negativity
honda is so lame
wtf on that infotainment screen is it running android. the icons look like android 4.0
I love Honda. I like this truck, but that gauge cluster is hideous/boring and why is it shaped like a maxipad?
That's a minivan with the back cut off.
The place I work at makes the trailer hitch for the ridgeline. I’ve never worked on it myself but I’ve been interested in seeing what this truck is like.
That's interesting, in the USA the Honda dealers are GM blue but here in Canada they are Toyota red.
Honda has had HPD since 1993. They’re the department/division that handles Motorsport research and development. “Honda Performance Development designs and develops racing engines, and chassis and performance parts for a variety of motorsports applications. HPD also provides factory support and parts to grassroots racers, helping power their racing dreams.”
I like that they kept it a naturally aspirated v6 and not a small turbo 4 cylinder that’s going to get worked like a dog and always on boost just to move.
As the owner of a Subaru Baja, I really wanted to like these. I test drove one and it felt like a minivan. No thanks. Also… for $41000 or so… I could rebuild my Baja several times over to easily get it to 500k. Or I could pick up a pretty nice Tacoma for less money (well when the car market is normal anyway)
You can actually lift these things to about 2 inches extra. Its not much but its better than stock.
Got to leave this one to Whistling Diesel
This one will last maybe 20 seconds longer than the first ridgeline he got his hands on
the offroad package is ugly as hell lmfao
Isn’t a truck
Mini van frame 😂😬
How can navigation not be included in all Ridgelines?
HPD. Sounds more like a sexual disease. LOLzzzzzz
I wish I hadn't decided to take a shot every time he says $41,000.
The calculator is for spelling BOOBIES in a rollover.
Honda: our tailgates open two ways GMC: we have 4 different forms of stairs on our trailers
People: it’s a truck Me: no…I don’t think you get it. That right there my friends, is a Honda Ridgeline: The most non trucky truck since that Nissan thing came out
i got a Subaru baja vibe
8:10 Doug: "There is no speedometer." 8:20 Also Doug: "Here is the speedometer"
My Honda Ridgeline 2021 sport model (least expensive model) has electric seat on both front seats. I am in Canada though. I also have heated seats and heated steering wheel. I have lights for the mirrors too. Guest we are spoiled in Canada.
The weirdest thing is that dealers will install and warranty JSport lifts all the way up to a 3.5 inch. Besides affecting EPA idk why even the 1.5in lift wasn't used on the HPD. Oh well
It looks dated already to me. Pickup form factory is getting really old and boring.
Big difference between looking tough and being tough. Doesn't look that bad though, would've looked better without the matte fender flares.
Personally I think these things are ugly as hell and when I bought my tundra, I didnt even consider one of these. Having said that, a guy in my neighborhood bought one and absolutely loves it. He’s always been a f150 guy but said he’s a ridge line guy now. I love my tundra and have no intention of trading or selling it for a ridge line but I gotta say, I live the trunk.
Hopefully he reviewed the new civic while he was there. After all most of us will end up with one of them lol.
Everything ugly, but it might hold is value :/ ... Gotta do better than that.
41k for this??? I think I would rather get the Ford Maverick instead.
I wouldn't even pay $20,000 for this "truck" No power seats? No light ln the visors? No chargers for the back seats?? NO THANKS
It’s my first time to see a blue Honda dealership
Penicillin will get rid of most HPD’s
I've seen a few of these driving around and it's not a good looking truck.
My dad just got one of these…one fun quirk that you would have enjoyed, the higher end trim levels have a Trunk Bed Speaker system that is really weird and works pretty well actually.
