Eric's Autos: 2023 Honda Ridgeline

Eric Peters on

Honda was the first to sell a midsize truck that isn't one: the Ridgeline. And many people love that about it.

They love that has a bed, like a truck. And, unlike most "real" trucks, additional storage under the bed. That it can pull a 5,000-pound trailer, which most cars can't. And it can carry a four-by-eight sheet of plywood, flat, which no traditional midsize truck can.

But it has more in common with cars -- under its skin -- than it does with the traditionally designed midsize trucks it's an alternative to.

And people like that most of all.

What It Is

The Ridgeline looks like a midsize/crew cab pickup truck, but looks can be deceiving -- in a good way, if what you're looking for is something that can do many of the things a midsize truck can do, as well as things they can't.

 

Prices start at $38,800 for the base Sport trim, which comes standard with a Class III trailer hitch and wiring, a seven-speaker audio system and three-zone automatic climate control.

There are also RTL ($41,780), RTL-E ($44,730) and Black Edition ($46,230) trims, the latter coming standard with blacked-out exterior trim, black leather seats with red accents and all of the amenity upgrades that come in the RTL-E, including an upgraded audio system, heated steering wheel and wireless phone charging.

What's New

The Ridgeline carries over unchanged from 2022.
