Car and Driver is hoping to make it easier for you to find a mid-size pickup truck. That’s why it recently released its annual Best Mid-Size Truck list, in which the Honda Ridgeline earned the top spot for the second year in a row. Let’s take a look at how the Ridgeline earned the Car and Driver Best Mid-Size Truck1 title.
One of the reasons the Ridgeline is different from its competition is its uni-body structure. This structure gives the Ridgeline a car-like drivability, which its competition doesn’t have. The editors at Car and Driver claim that this structure helps offer “good fuel economy, smart handling… and an excellent ride.”
Intelligent Truck Bed
The Ridgeline’s uni-body frame means that it doesn’t have any frame rails, allowing Honda to take advantage of more space for its truck bed. That’s why the Ridgeline features a lockable In-Bed Trunk®, which has a drain plug. It can be used to store tools or as a cooler if you happen to be tailgating. The Ridgeline also has an available 150W/400W truck bed outlet for power tools and other items, so you don’t have to worry about finding a plug on the go.
As the only pickup truck to receive a 2019 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)2, the Ridgeline will help you feel more confident behind the wheel.
