2008 Ridgeline Overview

The mid-size Honda Ridgeline vies for the title of most innovative pickup.Honda's best attributes are here in a pickup truck: refinement, fit-and-finish and innovation the Honda way.The Ridgeline features an easy-to-reach, locking storage box under its bed that no other pickup can match.

The differences between Ridgeline and more conventional pickups go all the way to the core.Ridgeline is the first mainstream pickup with fully independent rear suspension, which improves ride quality considerably.Other pickup trucks have traditionally been built with a separate nose section, cab section, and cargo bed, bolted to a separate ladder frame.Honda's pickup uses both a one-piece unibody and a steel ladder frame, welded together.Its cab and bed are built as one piece, with separate subframes for the engine, front suspension and rear suspension.Honda claims Ridgeline is 20 times more resistant to twisting than any other pickup truck, and 3.5 times more resistant to bending.

We've found the Ridgeline to be one of the nicest pickups to drive when measured by comfort and ease of use.It's smooth, quiet and very maneuverable, with a load of useful features.

Ridgeline cannot do the work of a full-size pickup, but its 1550-pound payload and 5000-pound towing capacity are enough for many buyers.

Ridgeline has changed little since its 2006 introduction.For 2007, Honda added the value-priced RTX model, which provided popular equipment such as alloy wheels and a trailer package, for a relatively small price increase over the base RT.At the same time, the top-of-the-line Ridgeline RTL added a power moonroof and XM Satellite Radio as standard equipment, and traded its two-tone leather for a single-tone look.For 2008, a new machined-look wheel design appears on the RTS and RTL, and the fabric interiors on the Ridgeline RT, RTX and RTS also change from dual-tone to single tone.

The Honda Ridgeline doesn't look or act like any other pickup truck we've driven, and it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg to own or operate.It makes pleasant, comfortable daily transportation, and it's as much pickup as many drivers will ever need.
