2021 Honda Ridgeline Review: Looking the part

2021 Honda Ridgeline Review: Looking the part

Brand identity is a tricky thing to get right. If the second-generation Ridgeline had a problem, it was that it was just too similar, from the front at least, to Honda's Pilot.

After living with the Sierra, for the most part I could understand why.
