#335: Driving the 2021 Honda Ridgeline

Main theme: This week we give our first impressions of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline pickup. Have recent tweaks to the interior, infotainment, and access made it better? And while the updates to the Ridgeline would not be considered a major redesign, the Ridgeline has an interesting place in the latest pickup truck battle, facing new competition from the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz. We discuss what makes a truck a truck and which truck is right for each of us—and perhaps you—if you had to pick one today.
