Product Overview

Product Name: Honda Ridgeline (2020)
Brand:

The 2020 Honda Ridgeline carves out a unique niche in the midsize truck segment. It forgoes the traditional body-on-frame construction of rivals like the Ford Ranger or Chevrolet Colorado in favor of a unibody design shared with Honda’s Pilot and Passport SUVs. This translates to a blend of comfort, utility, and on-road manners that set it apart from the competition.

Standing Out from the Pack: Unibody Advantages

The unibody construction grants the Ridgeline several advantages. First, it offers a smoother, more car-like ride. This is especially noticeable on uneven pavement and highways, where the Ridgeline absorbs bumps with composure. Second,the unibody contributes to a quieter cabin, making for a more peaceful driving experience. Third, it allows for some innovative features, like the Ridgeline’s signature in-bed trunk. This lockable compartment, situated beneath the bed floor,offers a secure, weatherproof storage solution that competitors simply can’t match.

Power and Capability

Every 2020 Ridgeline comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 280 horsepower. This engine provides ample power for most daily driving situations and even offers decent towing capacity, reaching a maximum of 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive. For 2020, the Ridgeline adopted a new 9-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous 6-speed unit. This update resulted in a slight improvement in fuel economy, with the Ridgeline achieving up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive.

Interior Comfort and Utility

The Ridgeline’s interior prioritizes comfort and functionality. The seats are spacious and supportive, offering plenty of legroom and headroom for both front and rear passengers. The cabin layout is user-friendly, with intuitive controls and ample storage compartments. While some reviewers found the plastic trim a bit low-rent compared to some pricier trucks,overall, the Ridgeline’s interior feels well-built and offers a pleasant driving environment.

A Truck for All Seasons (Except Maybe Off-Roading)

The Ridgeline’s unibody construction and independent rear suspension make it a joy to drive on paved roads. However,those seeking a serious off-road companion should look elsewhere. The Ridgeline lacks the ground clearance and rugged underpinnings necessary for tackling challenging trails. That said, the Ridgeline’s available all-wheel-drive system provides ample capability for handling light snow and light off-road excursions.

The Verdict: A Unique Truck with Specific Strengths

The 2020 Honda Ridgeline is a compelling option for those seeking a comfortable, fuel-efficient, and functional midsize truck. Its unibody design delivers a smooth ride, a quiet cabin, and innovative storage solutions. The Ridgeline is a capable hauler and decent tow vehicle, making it suitable for a variety of everyday tasks. However, prospective buyers should be aware that it is not designed for serious off-roading. Ultimately, the Ridgeline stands out as a unique option in the midsize truck segment, prioritizing comfort and everyday usability over rugged capability.
