As a midsize, crew-cab pickup, the Honda Ridgeline can maximize utility while minimizing the potential inconveniences of truck ownership. The Ridgeline uses a heavily modified version of the platform underneath the Passport and Pilot SUVs, but retains many of their comforts. It also shares their powerful, fuel-efficient V6 engine and capable all-wheel-drive system. Unlike Honda’s SUVs, the Ridgeline has an open cargo bed with a lockable trunk compartment and a tailgate that opens in two different directions. Compared to rivals, the Ridgeline has limitations in towing and off-roading. However, in all other respects, Honda’s truck may serve you well.
