I just looked at a pic of the new Ridgeline, and the headlights are a new shape. It's kinda weird how they didn't put the full LED lights that the Pilot and Passport has on upper trims if they were going through the trouble of making a whole new headlight housing. Looks like the grille swap isn't going to happen unfortunately because of the headlights and the new hood/fenders.

Now looking at them side by side, the newer one looks so much better than the older one. The old one looks good, but I really am starting to like the new one.

IMO the squared off grille of the 2021 Ridgeline reminds me of the original Ridgeline which had a square block face. The 2021 wheel flares provide the squared off look to the fenders. The current Ridgeline looks more slick, sporty and Accord-like.

im surprised Honda didnt make this front end the MMC for the pilot, and make it the passport front.

They'll probably make the Pilot less rugged looking in the next generation now that they have an aggressive Ridgeline and the "off-road worthy" Passport.

Is the intent to have a grill on which you could cook - or did you instead mean grille?
I grew up in England and grille was how we spelt it but I thought Americans spelt it grill

Grill:



Grille:

Yep. Exactly how I learnt it in England. Could have sworn Americans spelt the latter as grill but I was wrong ::Kanye shrug::

Btw, I have noticed that grey is recently becoming more prevalent in American usage than gray. Fascinating.

You have to remember, American make stuff up as they go along. Burger King does not flame grill their burgers, rather they flame broil them.

Where as in England this is how one would grill a hamburger.

In England they fill their autos with petrol and when they have flatulence they pass gas, In America we fill our cars with gas and call it the same thing that they pass after eating spicy food.

Most American no longer use the Oxford comma to save time.

While Americans have generally developed a superior dialect I am a firm believer in the Oxford comma. Some companies have "writing" or "style" guides and my last company actually had that their employees SHOULD NOT use the Oxford comma. Sorry, I still did.
