They are just an Accord or CRV with a bed. If you need the capabilities of a truck don't get one. If you want AWD and a smooth ride with a bed then they are fine.

Very debatable. I don't have one, but they perform very well in tests.

What do you mean when you say capabilities of a truck? No I wouldn't try to lift it and put 35's on it, or try to build a rock crawler, or mud bogger, or tow a 7,000 lb travel trailer, or use it for a work truck etc. but for picking up mulch and some lumber at home depot, dragging a modest boat to the lake etc. stuff people normaly do with a 1/2 ton pickup I think it would serve its purpose fine. Mind you people have been using v-6 trucks forever.

I will look at one when it comes time to replace my wifes escape, it offers much more capability and similar fuel mileage.

I like www.tfltruck.com for truck/trailering info. Here is their towing test of the Ridgeline:

try to take a Ridgeline in to the places that my Tacoma has been and it would not be coming out. At least not on it's own. One place where a Ridgeline will definitely outperform a Tacoma is on the hwy. I will take the off road capabilities of the Tacoma over the Ridgeline any day because that is what I need. If you stay on paved roads than the Ridgeline is probably a better choice. A Ridgline's suspension and off road features do not come close to the Tacomas. I have 6112s on the front, 6150 remote reservoirs rear, ATRAC and a locker. I bet a Ridgeline would not make it through a season where I hunt.

Put some bigger tires on it and I bet it would suffice. Your precious shocks serve your ego more than your performance any day. The ridgeline is not meant as a hardcore offroad vehicle. Besides if extreme offroad ability is the only/main measure of a TRUCK the vast majority don't make the cut.

you are correct and that is why I said it was a better hwy vehicle than mine. People use trucks for different purposes. I bought Tacoma specifically to handle the rugged ranch roads I travel. Most people would not put up with the hwy ride. I have hunted this ranch for long time and driven several trucks and none of them handle the terrain like the Tacoma. Everyone one I hunt with agrees it rides better than any other truck off road.

I doubt many people on a fishing forum is going to drag their boats through a hunting lease as you describe. The majority of fishermen/women are more interested in paved roadway performance,,,, at least that a perception of mine. After all I thought this was a fishing forum. You may be better served to pound you chest about the best vehicle to run on a deer lease on the hunting forum. But that's just me.

Never said anything about dragging boat through deer lease. A lot of people that fish also hunt. I was just pointing out that just because the Ridgeline is AWD that does not mean that it is a good or even decent off road vehicle. I am not beating my chest but Tacomas and Tundras are superior to Fords in every way.

haha, good discussion here. The redesigned Ridgeline is 2017 truck of the year from somebody I can't remember. Wifey and I drove one and it really drove nice. Very peppy 3.5 v-6, 285 hp. It looks more like a truck than the previous models. We're a little older and our days of pulling travel trailers and boats are behind us. We're just wanting something to take a few long trips in. Still considering it. I think it is overpriced.
