Ridgeline not finding buyers even at last year's pace.

Production constrains? Look at the Pilot's numbers (plus MMC) and also recall that the Passport will start rolling from those lines too.

I've seen a handful of RL's here in Upstate SC...
I don't think the demand is there - the mid-size truck market is on fire - IMO, the RL can't compete - the design/styling of the RL is lackluster/terrible - effeminate and awkward - even with all of the current Tacoma shortcomings (transmission, lack of amenities, lack of refinement, etc etc), I would buy a Tacoma anyday/everyday over a RL
Honda needs to invest and design a true BOF platform/truck or at least differentiate the RL apart from the Pilot
The Ranger is released next month and the Santa Cruz comes out this Fall/early 2020 - serious competition for the RL

How much does the Ridgeline have to sell in order to be a profitable product for Honda. The lack of a dedicated platform means shortcomings, but it also has to mean it doesn't have to sell super well to be profitable, right?
