I don’t think it does look all that much like a Ridgeline. And I don’t understand why they’re comparing it to an El Camino, since it doesn’t even have the same form factor. (The El Camino is a car with a pickup bed and three seats, this is a full size king cab pickup with a bit of a body kit, like one of those awful looking Navaras plodding their way around Ireland. At least this has a bit of style.)
The idea of a hybrid motor in a pickup still makes me laugh, although I suppose if it’s the only way to wean Americans off gas guzzlers, it’s progress. Why they buy all those “trucks” remains beyond me.
