Honda Ridgeline

Honda Ridgeline 2017 crew cab Trim Shown: 2017 RTL crew cab AWD Automatic

Honda's smart pickup is built on the same platform as the Honda Pilot and looks more conventional than the previous generation. It retains the unit-body construction, fully independent suspension, and lockable trunk space below the bed floor. Power comes from a slick 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. We got 20 mpg overall in our tests, the best of any nondiesel pickup. Towing capacity is modest at 5,000 pounds, and the bed is shallow. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Ride and handling are more refined than in conventional pickup trucks, and the cabin is quiet. The available Honda Sensing safety system includes automatic emergency braking.

Honda Ridgeline 2014 Trim Shown: 2014 RTS

The Honda Ridgeline challenged pickup conventions, ranking as the best compact truck we have ever tested. Based on a beefed-up version of the same platform found in the Honda Pilot, the Ridgeline drives more like a good sedan than a lumbering beast of burden. The ride is supple and steady and handling is quite agile. Innovations included a tailgate that can open either vertically or horizontally, and a clever, weatherproof, lockable trunk beneath the bed. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine is quiet, smooth, and responsive. But at 15 mpg overall, it's no more efficient than more capable full-size trucks. A 2009 updated added more torque. Road noise is pronounced. Roomy and nicely detailed, the crew cab is easy to access, but the lack of a telescoping steering wheel hurts the driving position. The five-foot-long cargo bed is on the short side, but is made from a composite plastic material and has no wheel arch intrusion. While not designed for serious off-roading, it proved capable in most off-road conditions. Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds and payload is 1,500 pounds. Stability control and curtain airbags were standard. With few changes over the a long model run, later years have rather dated factory audio systems. Resale values remain high.
