Not all of the Gen2 Ridgelines have AWD, the trunks are smaller (although the bed is more accommodating for a tonneau cover), and they haven't worked out the kings in mechanical and build issues. There are reports of computer issues where things don't shut off properly, leaks, and other problems. I'd wait on pulling the trigger on a Gen2 until they work out those kinks. Gen1 Ridgelines (particularly 2013 model) had very good ratings on consumer reports, edmunds, etc. Plus, there's that large trunk. There are some things that it could use improvement on, but it's still a solid vehicle. My brother had a friend put his struts on and his truck is running smoothly now.
