Spied: 2009 Honda Ridgeline MMC

As we reported last month, the 2009 Honda Ridgeline is due for a refresh this year. These pics pretty much confirm everything that was in our "Spring Cleaning" update. The vehicle shown here appears to be the top of the line RTL model.

By the way, if you would like to contribute to the "TOV spyshot fund", paypal contributions are welcomed.

From Brenda Priddy & Co:

Today we managed to snag the first ever photos of the refreshed, 2009 Honda Ridgeline pickup. Seen here without an ounce of camouflage, we can see the new Ridgeline will be taking cues from the recently released 2009 Pilot.

The biggest changes are up front with an all new, Pilot-inspired grill, a reworked bumper cover and two extra set of lights down low. These are probably daytime running lights and fog lights.

The Ridgeline is also sporting a set of new 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin LTX M/S tires; size P245/60 R18

At the rear we can see a freshened set of tail lights, a new lower bumper that now flows into the fender flares and a backup camera lens next to the handle on the tailgate.

It’s not clear if the Ridgeline will see any powertrain upgrades, but the rumors floating around of a 6-cylinder diesel offering just won’t die.
