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.
