Honda Ridgeline Summary

The Honda Ridgeline is consistently rated as one of the top compact pickup trucks in North America. With a smooth ride and comfortable interior, the truck's driving experience is often favourably compared to that of a mid-sized car. Though its V6 280-hp engine offers a lower than average towing capacity at its base levels, drivers can opt to add all-wheel drive which increases its tow rating by 1,500 pounds. With this add-on, you'll be more than capable of bringing your boat down to the cabin for the weekend or picking up a load of wood for your woodstove.
