Performance

If you are looking for a compact pick-up truck that can tow a mid-size boat or even haul a large family, then this used Honda Ridgeline will be perfect for your needs. As much as it can't tow a large load like a full-size pick-up truck, it's more composed and smoother on the road, compared to most of its competitors. Its platform resembles that of the Honda Pilot SUV, thus making it a front-drive, compact vehicle. Unlike its larger competitors, the Honda Ridgeline drives like a sedan or a crossover SUV. You will also notice that it sits lower than most of its competitors, which translates to controlled driving and smooth handling. It features hydraulic suspension bushings, center-bed reinforcement, as well as dual-action dampers. Compared to other compact mid-size trucks, the Ridgeline negotiates corners with ease and agility, while handling bumps and road imperfections much better than even the Pilot.

It's powered by a 3.5-liter, V6 engine, which has an output of 280 hp and 262 pound-feet of torque. Its V6 engine is then combined with a 6-speed automatic, which moves it well. If you will be driving in rugged conditions, then you can opt for the available all-wheel drive. It's best suited for driving in sand, dirt or snowy conditions. Due to its low clearance, it's not adequately equipped to handle rocky trails. Its engine is the most powerful in its class. It delivers adequate and smooth acceleration in all driving situations.

As for fuel economy, then front-wheel-drive Honda Ridgeline will give you a return of 26 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. If you opt for the all-wheel-drive models, then you should expect a fuel return of 25 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the city. As much as most of the other trucks in this class have the same fuel economy, they come with a 4-cylinder engine, compared to the Ridgeline's V6 engine. When properly outfitted, this vehicle can tow approximately 5,000 pounds, which should be enough to haul a small boat or an ATV.

Interior and Comfort

The Ridgeline is more of a blend between a pickup and an SUV. Therefore, its interior is much more comfortable than other pick-up trucks. Front-seat occupants get a comfortable, roomy and quiet cabin. Also, the cabin comes with more features and amenities than most of its competitors. Knee room, shoulder room, and headroom are adequate. Its back seat is also quite versatile. For instance, you can fold it back against the wall, leaving adequate space to fit a large, flat-screen TV, some sets of golf clubs as well as a bike. Front seats have an ergonomic shape. They are also large enough to accommodate big occupants.

It's also very friendly to the driver and the passengers alike. Climbing in and out of the cabin is effortless. Also, the interior features high-quality materials, which give it a premium look and feel. All models are equipped with a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, with a wide range of movement. The driver's seat is height-adjustable, which means that you can easily find a sweet driving spot behind the wheel. Its windows are large and clear, resulting in great outside views.

Standard features in the Honda Ridgeline include a 5-inch display screen and a 7-speaker stereo system, featuring a USB port. You can opt for more features if you choose the higher trims. Some of the available features offered for the Ridgeline include an eight-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Siri Eyes Free as well as Pandora compatibility.  

Safety

According to safety tests conducted by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), the Honda Ridgeline earned the highest possible score in all the crash tests while the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration gave it an overall score of 5. Without a doubt, the Honda Ridgeline is a safe vehicle to drive. The base model features rearview camera. Various active safety features such as front parking sensors, rear parking sensors, Honda LaneWatch and automatic high-beam headlights are available in some trims. Honda SensingSuite is also available in the higher trims. It includes features such as lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

Verdict

If you are looking for a compact truck for daily use, then the Honda Ridgeline is a good investment. It offers the utility of a pick-up truck, with the handling of a compact SUV. As much as its prices are higher than its competitors, you can rest assured that you will get value for your money, thanks to its comfortable ride, ample passenger room, refined interior quality, and decent safety scores.
