Comfortable ride; payload and towing capacity; extensive standard safety equipment
The Honda Ridgeline is in a class of its own--it is the only truck in the full-size segment to use a closed-box frame and unit-body construction. It utilizes independent front and rear suspension and features a relatively short bed and a car-like driving experience. The Ridgeline excels in 5-passenger comfort and handling that is decidedly better than that of many other trucks.
