Honda Ridgeline: the Pickup you Have Been Looking for

By: Terry Brown

The past years have been good to Honda as its soars high in the US auto market. The company has produced award winning models and bestsellers which is a feat that the company is aiming to continue this year. This is not a surprise coming from this forward thinking company. In the past, the brand has been associated with reliable cars and precision engineering as well as with great exterior and interior designs of vehicles.

The new addition to their already powerful lineup of cars is the Honda Ridgeline. This pickup is one of the trucks being given much praise thanks to its awesome design and high performance level.

The Honda Ridgeline truly is a truck when it comes to size for it provides a large cargo space and a roomy interior for the driver and the passengers. Talking about passengers, this truck can easily seat 5 passengers with even room to spare.

The interior design of the vehicle is one that would not disappoint. Once inside, you can almost forget that you are in a truck and think that you are inside a luxury sedan or a SUV. An added bonus to the interior is the abundance of little extra storage areas; it may have gotten straight out of the Honda Odyssey or Pilot.

It is loaded with features which anyone would surely want to have in their cars. Cruise control, heated front seats, satellite radio, compass and temperature gauges are just some of the goodies this vehicle offers. It all adds to that luxury feel that this vehicle is giving off. To further add to the aesthetic appeal of the vehicle, users can lower the ride height of the vehicle and use to complement the lowered look of the pickup.

The power plant of the truck is a 24 valve, 3.5 liter, VTEC aluminum alloy V6 engine which is capable of producing 255 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. The V6 may be a large engine but the truck is noticeably quiet. It is so quiet that it almost feels like you are driving a sedan while you are behind the wheel of this truck another addition to the features it has that makes it a luxury pickup.

The fun thing about this pickup is that it is not only good for in road driving, it has got an off road capability which is quite respectable. This is all because of the precision engineering employed in the design of the suspension system of the truck which keeps the truck on its toes during off road driving.
