Faulty logic. The Tacoma and the GM twins far outsell the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline was never a volume seller and Honda decided to be stubborn by repeating their error. The result is another sales dud. People want real pickups in this size. Lifestyle pickups one size smaller are more likely to be accepted.
