Strangely, the bigger openings and the larger headlights do make it look more truckish .

The one thing that really bugs me about all these new SUVs and trucks is the square wheel well. It throws off the whole look IMO. I wonder what this Ridgeline would look like with a rounded off wheel well.

the chop is kinda like taking a couple steps backwards design-wise....

Seems Honda decided to ditch that funny looking grill at the last minute.

Took this picture at a local dealership (Ridgeline RTS):

Um, they didn't get rid of it.....



I don't get it, why does this Ridgeline RTS have the funny looking grill and the silver RTS I saw last week didn't . I doubt it has anything to do with the foglights.

Yup, it is an option:


The exterior list wasn't up the first time I checked so I had no clue. Honda should at least make it standard on the RTL since it looks so much better than the standard grill. PS the optional grill over the stock one in your pic .
