Honda has already released a few details of what we can expect from its Ridgeline pickup truck for the 2012 model year, but a new series of spy shots from our friends at offers even more clues.
In addition to the already announced Ridgeline Sport (an oxymoron?), the rest of the line will get a revised fascia that more closely mimics the automaker's latest Pilot, with which the Ridgeline shares much of its underpinnings. In place of the somewhat homely grille-within-a-grille sported by the 2011 model, the 2012 Ridgeline will apparently receive a version of the more handsome three-bar face seen on the 2012 Pilot.

We're also told to expect some interior tweaks for Honda's unibody pickup as well as a slight boost in fuel economy, which, for 2011, was rated by the EPA at 15 miles per gallon in the city, 20 on the highway and 17 combined. Considering that the Ridgeline is offered only with a relatively tame V6 engine, it really ought to do better... especially since Ford's base V6 offers 52 more horses and manages 17/23 from the EPA, and it's mounted in a much larger truck.
