Was reading their article on their long term test. Gas mileage averaging 20-21. Too bad, you would think with the aero design and unibody it would fair better, but nope.

yesterday...Everything is Apple here, phones, laptops, desktop.
She teaches digital media at the College, yet they refuse to get Apples for the computer lab...has to use PC's which are horrid...believe the college thinks Apples are some kind of liberal conspiracy.....it is Idaho, afterall. They're little behind the times here. Which is good and bad.
I like this better.
Tribalism certainly exists within the 4x4 community. However, I don't think tribalism is the main reason that the Honda Ridgeline is looked down upon by hardcore 4x4 enthusiasts and truck owners. It's because its a car-derived vehicle that's intended to offer some amount of truck functionality, as opposed to being a truck designed/built from the ground up to offer total truck functionality.A modern powerplant requires $10s of millions in development. Its the height of madness to suggest that an engine in a sedan or van can't be used in a truck or vice versa. Many of these engines are providing very long service life. Just because the core engine design is the same, doesn't mean that changes aren't made for the truck service regime.
Tradition and tribal identification are part of the reason that the big three dominate the pickup offerings in the USA. Honda, Nissan, or Toyota could offer equivalent functionality in a mid-sized at 3/4 the cost, and it would be rejected by 75% of buyers simply because it doesn't "look" right.
I always thought the frame/unibody argument on the ridgeline was strange. Since when does a light duty truck with 1500lb payload need a fully boxed frame? I will take the weight savings and better ride personally.
