If you need the open-bed utility of a pickup truck, but you don't want the rough ride, clumsy handling and fuel-thirsty engine that often accompany such beasts, the 2013 Honda Ridgeline could be j
If you need to tow more than 5,000 pounds or haul really heavy loads, you may want to look to a full-size V8-powered crew cab. The 2013 Honda Ridgeline's standard all-wheel-drive (AWD) setup is no
Because its body and frame are formed as a single unit (as opposed to a separate body bolted to a separate frame, as are other pickups in this market), the 2013 Ridgeline can easily incorporate a sophisticated independent suspension. The Ridgeline's suspension is the principal reason it drives so well, with excellent steering response, minimal body roll and a comfortable, controlled ride. The 3.5-liter V6 engine is a proven powerplant that has no problem moving the 4,500-pound truck. Occasionally, the transmission seems to hesitate before r

"Has been a great truck/car and friend to me. I have enjoyed it and it's been very reliable for me. Honda builds a great product and this has been no exception. Would like to have better fuel economy, but for a vehicle this size it's about what to be expected. i average about 19. love the GPS and satellite radio. A/c is a little weak when it gets extremely hot. Very comfortable seating and interior, rides like a luxury sedan. Highly recommended!"

"Im in the USAF. I purchased my Ridgeline in Dallas two weeks before I PCS'd(Permanent Change of Station) to Maryland/DC Metro. I always wanted a Ridgeline but me relocating to Maryland was the perfect reason, due to their snowy winters. Plus I needed to tow my 3,000 pound 300zx behind me. Some people wouldve shipped it, but not me. I wanted to see what me New RIdgeline could do. With the trailer and my Z I was right at the towing capacity. Right around 5K pounds. So with a 1200 mile ride ahead I made my trip. It exceeded my expectations in every way. Gas mileage wasnt that great, but that was expected. The ride quality was still great through the rigid flatlands and had more than enough torque in the mountains of tennessee. The VTEC V6 did its job and more. Even the brakes did great to stop 10k pounds of force rolling down a mountain. We made it safe and now its been 6 months living in the DC metro area. Its the perfect truck for this congested environment. Notice i said truck, a honda insight would be better overall for this traffic. But as for trucks its great, Ive seen my friends trade in there Tundra's and Ram's. I get 24mpg on the highway, thats almost as much as the sedans I see riding down the road. For the space, gas mileage, practicality and relialbility. Nothing can beat a Honda Ridgeline."
