Next-Generation BMW M5 Spied Testing, Packs All-Wheel Drive - Automobile

The next-generation BMW M5 sedan will adopt all-wheel drive, as seen on a current-gen M5 prototype caught testing in the snow earlier this year. While the new M5 will have all-wheel drive, don’t expect it to lose all of the pure driving characteristics that made the previous generations so enthralling. “If we were to do a four-wheel drive [car], it should be rear-wheel drive with traction, as I like to say,” Meel said. “It needs to drive like an M should drive. If that were possible with four-wheel drive, to get those vehicle dynamics, then it would be suitable for us. ” The current BMW M5, which has been on sale since the 2012 model year, features a 4. 4-liter twin-turbo V-8 pushing out a substantial...

2015 Chevrolet Colorado review: Blending tech with smaller size (for a pickup) - ExtremeTech

America’s best selling cars are actually pickup trucks, the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. Now comes a midsize pickup, the Chevrolet Colorado, that is more reasonably scaled and easier to drive around in. It’s also chock full of technology, much the same as you’d get in a passenger car: blind spot detection, lane departure warning, 4G... The combination of its technology and the age of its competitors makes the 2105 Chevrolet Colorado our Editors’ Choice among midsize pickup trucks. Chevrolet and Colorado made a splash at the Super Bowl last month with the “Sexier” commercial asking women: Who is sexier, a guy in front of a generic sedan or a Rock Red Metallic 2015 Chevrolet Colorado. Chevrolet calls this a small pickup truck in some advertising, but it is nothing like the Chevrolet-Ford-Mazda-Nissan-Toyota truly compact pickups of a generation ago. The ride is refined (for a pickup) and it’s not big (for a pickup). But it can get expensive (like a full-size pickup) because of the extensive options lists for box-checkers, the customers who check off every option available. What’s lost in the noise around the multiple truck-of-the-year awards won by Colorado, which noted its truck aspects, is how much technology is in the vehicle. Great infotainment, multiple USB, 4G telematics and WiFi General Motors has a quiet hit with the MyLink infotainment system: big touchscreen icons, big. Source: www.extremetech.com

2016 Honda Pilot Review - Automobile

We’re bombing along a stretch of northern Kentucky back road, pushing ever harder into wide sweepers and tight switchbacks as lush rolling hills dotted with weathered black barns and Baptist churches whiz by. It’s the type of route more suited to... Virtually no one is going to go tear-assing across Kentucky bluegrass country in an all-new Honda Pilot like we are, but what the route so fittingly illustrates is how much more refined the 2016 Pilot is dynamically, how much better its powertrain... If it’s this good out here, then we can only image how good the new Pilot will be trundling along on the suburban soccer-game-shuttling circuit. These are critical areas customers care deeply about when mulling a vehicle like the Pilot, and Honda’s U. S. -based design and engineering teams believe they’ve over-delivered. Along the flanks and at the rear, the Pilot is now more in line with the rest of the segment, with extensive wind-tunnel testing influencing the design approach. Honda officials told us one of the biggest reasons why prospective customers didn’t buy the outgoing Pilot was because its boxy appearance projected a more utilitarian and, by extension, inefficient package.

    The Honda Ridgeline is a mid-size sport utility truck produced by the Japanese automaker Honda. The Ridgeline was released in March 2005 as a 2006 model and is Honda's first foray into the North American pickup truck market. The Ridgeline was built in Alliston, Ontario (HCM) and in 2009 its assembly was moved to Lincoln, Alabama (HMA).[1] Production ended in mid-2014.[2][3]

    In December 2013, the automaker announced it will not give up on the pickup with an all-new Ridgeline that is being planned within two years.[3][4]

    2004 Honda Ridgeline concept vehicle

    2006 Honda Ridgeline at the 2005 Toronto International Autoshow with an ATV in its bed, also equipped with optional roof rack and brush guard

    The Ridgeline is "Honda's first foray into the true heartland of the American automotive way of life."[5] The vehicle was designed and engineered in Honda R&D Americas facilities in Raymond, Ohio.[6] A team of 37 engineers was led by a former General Motors designer who previously worked on the Chevrolet S-10 pickup, Gary Flint, developed the Honda vehicle in over four years at under $250 million.[7] The design was first revealed as the Honda SUT concept car in 2004.

    Illustration of the Honda Ridgeline's closed-box unibody frame

    Honda engineers developed the Ridgeline using the Honda Pilot and MDX "as a base to start building what we targeted as additional truck structure back into the vehicle."[8] It has a closed-box unibody frame with four-wheel independent suspension, and its rear suspension design provides space for a storage area below the bed, referred to as an in-bed trunk.[8][9][10]

    The 5 ft (152 cm) cargo bed is integrated with the body, similar to the Chevrolet Avalanche, which can be extended to 6.6 ft (201 cm) with the tailgate in the down position. The bed's width between the wheel wells is 4.1 ft (125 cm); given very little wheel well protrusion, that number is close to the maximum width of the overall bed. The bed has multiple tie down cleats, rated at 350 lb (159 kg), and has special guides built into the bed to accommodate two large off-road motorcycles or one large all-terrain vehicle. The Ridgeline’s bed is also equipped with four in-bed lights designed to support a minimum 10 lux light level anywhere in the bed.[11] The Ridgeline has a payload capacity ranging from 1,559 lb (707 kg) to 1,475 lb (669 kg), depending on trim,[10] and its tailgate is designed to handle dynamic loads of up to 300 lb (136 kg).[11] The Ridgeline's bed is a steel-reinforced composite with steel crossmembers and a non-slip, scratch resistant, corrosion resistant surface.[12] When comparing this payload capacity with other mid-size body-on-frame trucks of the same model year, such as Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, the Ridgeline has greater capacity than its competition.[13][14][15] The Ridgeline's tailgate has a unique dual-action hinging system that allows it to be opened no differently than any other truck tailgate but can also be swung open to one side, like a car door, to provide easier access to the bed.[11]

    Honda lists a 5,000 lb (2,268 kg) maximum towing capacity for the Ridgeline which is over 1,000 lb (454 kg) less than its nearest rivals, even when you take into account the Ridgeline's curb weight and gross combined weight rating (GCWR).[10][13][14]

    The Ridgeline has a four-wheel independent suspension with MacPherson struts in the front and a multi-link design, with trailing arms, in the rear.[10] According to Ridgeline's chief engineer (Gary Flint), the Ridgeline's rear suspension was designed with upright springs and dampers using an "exclusive geometry" to better support "saver loads."[16] The Ridgeline has four-wheel disk brakes with 13.1 in (33 cm) ventilated front discs, with two piston calipers, and 12.6 in (32 cm) solid rear discs, with one piston calipers.[16][17][18]

    2009-2014 Honda Ridgeline RTL (with navigation) interior layout and design

    The Ridgeline's drivetrain, frame, and suspension design allowed engineers to build a unique watertight and drainable 8.5 cu ft (241 l) in-bed trunk at the rear of the bed that also houses a temporary or full-size spare tire and is lockable. --Since accessing this in-bed trunk would be difficult with a loaded bed, the Ridgeline has a temporary mounting location for the spare tire on the right side of the bed wall by the cab's rear window.--[19][20] This design also allowed engineers to build a truck with 8.2 in (21 cm) of ground clearance while providing a low entry and excet hight for the cab.[10] This drivetrain and frame design also allowed engineers to build a flat load floor in the second row passenger area with 2.6 cu ft (74 l) of under-seat storage[10] or 41.4 cu ft (1 m3) of storage when the 60/40 split bench seat is stowed in the up, or retracted, position.[21]

    According to the Ridgeline's chief engineer, the sheet metal design of the Ridgeline's engine hood allowed engineers to build windshield wipers that are protected from the wind; they also built in automatic heating elements into the lower windshield to help improve wiper performance in cold weather.[16] This hood design also allowed the engineers to build a patented cold air intake system for the engine that's mounted high in the compartment, above the radiator, to support torque production during high engine temperature conditions.[22] According to Gary Flint, the sheet metal design of the Ridgeline's bed was built to maintain good aerodynamics and reduce air turbulence between the cab and the tailgate while maintaining driver visibility.[16]

    Powertrain[edit]

    The Ridgeline is powered by a transversely mounted J35A9 (2006–2008) or J35Z5 (2009–2014),[9] 3.5 l (214 cu in) V6 engine with a five speed automatic transmission and comes with transmission and power steering coolers standard on all models.[10]

    According to the Ridgeline's chief engineer, the truck's Variable Torque Management Four-Wheel Drive (VTM-4) system "provides front-wheel drive for dry-pavement cruising conditions and engages all-wheel drive when needed to improve stability or maneuverability" via an electromagnetically driven clutch-operated differential (Honda partnered with BorgWarner for its development[23]). Gary Flint wrote, "After studying various all-wheel and four-wheel drive systems offered by the wide variety of pickups on the market today, Ridgeline engineers concluded that virtually everyone had functional shortcomings and was undesirably bulky and heavy. The direct result of that research was to use Honda’s innovative fully automatic VTM-4 system." VTM-4's fully automatic design distributes torque to the axles and wheels that need it most based on driver input (the accelerator), driving conditions, and wheel slippage. The clutches in the rear differential can be manually engaged (VTM-4 Lock) in first, second or reverse gears and will gradually decrease the amount of rear wheel torque as driving speeds increase; at 18 mph (29 km/h) the lock is automatically disengaged but will reengage when speed drop below 18 mph (29 km/h) or until VTM-4 Lock is turned off.[24]

    Equipment[edit]

    In addition to heated windshield wiper zones, the Ridgeline comes standard with anti-lock brakes with an electronic brake distribution system, tire pressure monitoring system, daytime running lights (for the 2009-2014 models), four-wheel drive lock mode, a vehicle stability assist system with off switch (for off-road use), digital information display, three 12V DC electrical outlets (two front, one rear), and multiple airbags with rollover sensor. Regardless of trim level, all Ridgelines come with front bucket seats with multi-function center console and a 60/40 fold-up rear bench seat. Five trim levels are available: RT, RTX or Sport, RTS, RTL, and SE.[10] The Sport model replaced the RTX in 2009 and the SE model was introduced in 2014.

    The short lived RTX trim added gray-painted alloy wheels, body-colored door handles, and factory tow package.[25] while the Sport trim that replaced it added blackout treatment on the bezels surrounding the headlights and brake lights, a black sport grille, 18-inch machine finished black painted alloy wheels, and unique sports badging. The RTS added a 6-way power driver's seat, a 160W stereo with 6-CD changer and subwoofer, body-colored mirrors, silver-painted alloy wheels, and dual-zone climate control system. The RTL added leather trimmed upholstery, heated front seats, XM Satellite Radio, a 115V/100W AC electrical outlet, digital multi-function information display, HomeLink® remote system, ambient console lighting, a moonroof, 18-inch machine-finished silver alloy wheels, and fog lights. Optional on the RTL was GPS navigation with voice recognition;[19]Bluetooth was added to the RTL trim with navigation in 2009.[26] The SE trim was the top of the line model which included every option for the RTL and added a unique black grill, unique polished aluminum 18-inch wheels, special badging, and a black monochrome interior with matching leather upholstery.[10]

    Facelift[edit] Honda Ridgeline Facia Changes.png

    The Ridgeline's was upgraded for the 2009 model year with over 50 changes. These included a new front end with daytime running lights, factory tow hitch, two additional bed cleats, backup camera, a redesigned engine, a revised transmission, an updated instrument cluster, new steering wheel, and the addition of Bluetooth. The new engine (J35Z5) produces three more horsepower and up to 10 more foot-pounds of torque at lower RPMs than its predecessor.[9]

    In 2012, the Sport model was introduced.[27] as were new grills for its RT, RTS, and RTL trims, aerodynamic improvements, and friction reduction measures for the engine.[28]

    The 2014 model year, the last year of Honda's first generation Ridgeline, introduced a top level "Special Edition" trim.[6][10][29]

    Motor Trend truck of the year 2006 [30] North American Truck of the year 2006[31] Marketing and sales[edit]

    The automaker was slow to enter the minivan market as well as the SUV market, so "given that track record it is no surprise that Honda has just now [2005] gotten around to building a pickup truck" that is not designed to compete against the traditional F-150, Silverado, or Ram domestic models, but to "give the 18% of Honda owners who also own pickups a chance to make their garages a Honda-only parking area."[32]

    The Ridgeline is more aptly classified as a sport utility truck with the only other rivals being the Chevrolet Avalanche and Ford Explorer Sport Trac. Other rivals may include the crew-cab versions of compact pickups like the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier, both of which follow the traditional pickup layout.[33][34]

    Honda hoped buyers would find it an attractive alternative to large SUVs, and conventional pickup trucks.[35] Some in the press that have evaluated the Ridgeline consider it "one of those odd vehicles..."[36] Pickuptrucks.com wrote, "The Ridgeline can't really do what most people who like trucks need it to do."[36] When comparing the Honda to full-size trucks, the mid-sized Ridgeline falls short.[10][37][38][39]

    2009 Honda Ridgeline RTL (with optional sport grill, brush guard, roof rack, body-side molding, splash guards) towing a large sport boat

    An Autotrader evaluation of the Ridgeline described "trucks such as the Chevy Silverado and even the new 2015 Ford F-150 are just too much truck for most people. Sure, some homeowners and weekend warriors may actually need a 10,000-lb towing capacity, but the Honda Ridgeline is probably just right for most."[40] The Ridgeline's specifications and performance numbers are competitive against other mid-size trucks, such as the crew-cab short-box models of the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier.[10][13][14]

    Since its debut, "Honda's first pickup for the U.S. market is slow to gain traction" with the Nissan Titan pickup also falling short of sales targets and "even mighty Toyota ... keeps going back to the drawing board after stumbling with undersized and underpowered early truck offerings in this all-American segment," while the domestic automakers are succeeding "by responding swiftly to their customers' changing demands and offering good service and a wide variety of models and engine sizes."[41]

    Sales of the Ridgeline were initially slow, partly because it was considered over-priced.[35] Consequently, dealers began to discount the truck, and the average selling price has come down steadily according to J.D. Power.[35] Despite the Ridgeline's slow sales, Honda gave it a slight facelift and added lower-priced Sport model, but the "four-door pickup's sales have been lackluster since its 2006 model year debut."[42]

    The automaker took the unusual step of addressing the gossip about the Ridgeline being dropped from the line up "with an official statement confirming the truck is "here to stay."[42]

    By 2011, the truck's "sales, which were never great to begin with, lately have been in a free fall" prompting Honda's official media web site to include "an open letter from the company's head to truck product planning, denying rumors that the Ridgeline would be dropped and insisting that a pickup truck will remain part of the company's portfolio."[43]

    Parts shortages due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami put production on hold and "this setback likely impacted sales of the already slow-selling pickup," but the company again announced that the Ridgeline "may continue production through 2013."[44]

    The automaker's first entry "into Truck Mountain was met with slow sales," but at the end of 2013, Honda announced plans for a second generation in two years' time.[45]

    As of 2013 the Honda Ridgeline was available in the United States, Canada, and Mexico in LHD only.

    Calendar year US sales 2005 42,593[46] 2006 50,193 2007 42,795 2008 33,875 2009 16,464 2010 16,142 2011 9,759 2012 14,068 2013 17,723[47] 2014 13,389 Second generation[edit]

    On July 12, 2013, Honda announced that the Ridgeline will end production after the 2014 model year.[4] The automaker planned to continue production until the replacement was introduced; however, "slow sales of the truck have prompted the automaker to pull it sooner than expected."[48] A redesigned model is expected in 2016, and is not known if the replacement will be an SUT or a traditional body-on-frame truck.[3][4]

  • 4 wheel drive - Honda Ridgeline Owners Club Forums

    The drivetrain on the Ridgeline functions in the traditional All Wheel Drive mode fr the most part.

    When pulling away from a stop, the transmission shifts some power to the rear wheels until you pass 18mph. Then while cruising the transmission functions primarily in the front wheel drive mode. If wheel spin is detected in one of the front wheels, partial power is transfered to the rear wheels and the stability system applies braking force to the slipping wheel.

    VTM-4 Lock functions as a traditional four wheel drive mode in Drive 1, Drive 2, and Reverse up to 18mph. When the VTM-4 Lock button is depressed, the electronic clutch packs in the rear differential close essentially locking the rear wheels as in a traditional rear locker and sending up to 70% of the available torque to the rear wheels.

    Hope this helps.

  • 2008 Honda Ridgeline - Kelley Blue Book - Kbb.com

    Driving Impressions Refined solidity is the byword, along with a comfortable highway ride. On some rougher surfaces, though, quite a bit of road commotion is transmitted. Except for louder-than-expected engine sounds when...

    accelerating, there is very little truck-like sensation inside. The Ridgeline handles moderate off-road treks with ease and, when towing a maximum-weight trailer, or with its bed filled, you hardly realize you're pulling a load. Still, the 2008 Honda Ridgeline has a heavy overall feel, due in part to its all-wheel-drive componentry, which cuts a bit into agility. Passing power is adequate, but not wholly energetic at all speeds. Four-channel anti-lock braking (ABS) incorporates electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist for more effective "panic" stops.

  • Used 2008 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab Pricing & Features ...

    This is the estimated average annual insurance premium being charged in your state. The premium has been determined based on annual premium data for defined coverages (liability, comprehensive and collision) from a major insurer.

    While this information is specific to vehicle make, model, model year and body type, your personal information is not taken into consideration and could greatly alter the actual premium quoted by an insurer. Factors that will affect your rate include your age, marital status, credit history, driving record, and the garaging address of your vehicle.
