RWD badge? [View News Item]    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-15-2018 14:05

The badge on the bottom right looks like it says "RWD" below some other smaller badge.

At first I thought it was "AWD" BUT the "A" looks like it's too kinked at the bottom making it look like an "R".

Incredibly doubtful. But.... Anyone else?

It sort of does look like an R, but there is a little piece of plastic connecting all the letters together.

Yeah. I was about to say things wouldn't make any sense if it did have an R.

this one is cropped from the full res source image, then scaled up 200% and run through an "auto contrast" filter. looks like "ELITE AWD" to me.

I could also be convinced that there is some badge above.

There is a 100% chance it says: "Elite AWD"

Which is boring as hell but a very safe choice obviously.

An off-road specific trim would be REALLY nice here especially since this thing is supposed to be: "personal" and "adventure ready". Especially with all the off-road racing focus of the Ridgeline (Baja) and the Pilot (Rebelle Rally) - and with the aftermarket Ridgeline stuff they brought to SEMA this year.

A Rebelle Rally edition would be nice: beefier tires, more ground clearance, mud-ready interior bits, tough looking exterior bits.
