Honda Ridgeline is a Truck for Non-Truck Buyers

Honda has vehicles for everyone. We even have a truck for non-truck buyers.

The Honda Ridgline is described that way in this article, but what does that mean? “To us, that translates into being a bit more comfortable, easier to get into and…well… less truck-like. It’s not that we have anything against full-size trucks, they are amazing with all their capabilities and there are models that are plush and comfortable, but they are just so…big.”

Don’t get us wrong, the Ridgeline has the necessary power and strength of a “regular” truck with it’s 250-hp 3.5-liter SOHC VTEC V-6 engine. It has a payload capacity of 1,500 pounds and towing capability of 5,000. Another great “truck” feature is the bed, which is big enough for most people’s transporting needs that you may not want inside the vehicle (dirt, wood, garbage, etc.).

But some one of the things we love the most is the least truck-like: the interior. “With its four doors and large rear seat, the Ridgeline easily carries five adults in a space that’s about 10 cubic feet larger than the interior of a Honda Accord and the same size as a Mercedes S-Class sedan. The rear seats are split 40/60 with the bottom cushions folding up to allow cargo to be easily stacked on the floor when more cargo space is needed. The interior also has plenty of handy places in the doors and center console for the must-have’s you can’t leave home without.”

Most people who aren’t stuck on the idea of a traditional truck love the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, even Consumer Reports listed it as their favorite compact pick up.

“When people need a truck, they don’t often think of Honda first,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda. “But the 2014 Honda Ridgeline is a really a dark horse. You just have to give it a chance. Take it for a test drive and think about what your actual needs are. You’ll find that Ridgline is probably a great fit for you.”
