Although Honda says this is a truck it rides like a car! I wanted a vehicle that I could use as 99% travel and that occasional 1% to haul things to the dump or transport larger items than what would fit in the back of my SUV - the Ridgeline answers it all.

I knew when I showed the truck to my friends who said "That's not a real pickup truck..." that I had found something unique. They were right - it's not a normal pickup truck. It rides and drives like a sports car - tight, solid, responsive. Yet hauls so much with the flip-up rear seats, in-bed locking weatherproof trunk, and composite bed with swing-open tailgate, it is more than a normal truck. The smooth VTEC engine and 5 speed auto with all-wheel drive and variable torque management are as far-removed from the 4-wheel drive trucks they were accustomed to. After one ride, I was hearing comments like "This is Nice!" and "Pretty Sweet!" The truck handles better than any I've ever owned in the rain. No tire spin, no torque steer, smoothest and quietest 4WD vehicle I've ever been in that can still tow 5,000 lbs.
It has all the amities I want in a truck. Actually built on a Car chassis, it feels like a car. I use it for going hunting, camping and long trips.
The Navigation and back up camera are very helpful getting into and out unchartered territories. Plenty of room for my hunting buddies to go along for the ride. Pulls a trailer for extra camping accessories for everyone. This is my third Ridgeline and will probably get another in the future.
