    Real trucks have frames , rear wheel drive , and 10,000 or more pound towing capacity, and no torque or speed limiters on its cable or linkage connected throttle . This thing is at best an SUV with a box ..

      Hi Andrew – thank you for your comment! It is definitely true that the Ridgeline does not offer some of the extreme heavy duty capabilities seen in today’s largest pickups. However, the Ridgeline is competing in a whole different class of trucks. The Honda Ridgeline is up against vehicles such as the Chevrolet Colerado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tocoma. These vehicles focus less on just heavy duty functionality and more on being a more functional and capable alternative to a large SUV.

    I have a 2011 Ridgeline and I can tell you it has never let me down. I have towed a 21′ boat, filled the back with rocks, furniture, drywall, plywood and has made many trips to the dump.

    In fact, just today after dealing with 2 days of ice pellets, freezing rain and then rain, I put it in 4 wheel lock and drove through 8″ of slop thanks to the city not plowing side streets. My circle includes a hill, and flat sections. I can’t say that it simply sailed through with my 3 year old Michelin X-ice Winter Tires, but I can tell you I got through.

    I will be towing a 23′ trailer at 4100 lbs in a few weeks.

    Oh did I forget to mention pulling the boat out of its storage place in March with a foot of snow. Perfect it wasn’t but it did it and that is all I needed. 272K and climbing.
