2013 Honda Ridgeline
With a starting MSRP of $29,450 the Honda Ridgeline is one pickup truck that is available to the majority of potential new car buyers. While it doesn't have the brutish durability of a Ford or the raw power of a Ram, the 2013 Ridgeline still has much to offer consumers who know what they're looking for in a truck. Let's face it; the Ridgeline wasn't designed for the traditional die-hard pickup truck enthusiast. This truck was designed to compete with the Chevy Avalanche; and compete it does. Just about the only thing the Avalanche is consistently better at is performance, power and rugged off-road durability. When it comes to design, bells-and-whistles, price, comfort, handling and safety, the Ridgeline has the Avalanche beat, especially in handling.
The engineers at Honda have certainly showed some ingenuity in the design. There is an in-bed trunk compartment that is hidden beneath the bed of the Ridgeline. This compartment has 8.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is enough to fit a cooler and a bag. more

2010 Honda Ridgeline
With pricing between $28,450 and $34,430, the 2010 Honda Ridgeline presents excellent value. This midsized, light duty pickup truck is truly skilled at making you feel that you are driving inside of a car.
2009 Honda Ridgeline
A freshened style and several new features have been added to the 2009 Honda Ridgeline. The new front end matches the well-received look of the Pilot while other exterior enhancements include varying headlamp/tail light color combinations and newly-designed bumpers.
2008 Honda Ridgeline
While the 2008 Honda Ridgeline is a half-ton pickup that has ample cargo space, it certainly is lacking in overall exterior design. The short bed's high side-walls make the truck appear incomplete, as if in the process of building an SUV the manufacturer was stopped by unforeseen forces.
2007 Honda Ridgeline
On the 2007 Honda Ridgeline, 4-wheel drive is standard across the line, and combines with the engine power to give the Ridgeline the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, and its five-foot bed not only sports a lockable hidden trunk, but also has the ability to hold 4x8's flat between its wheel wells (or up to 1,000 pounds of anything else you might want to haul).
