I suspect I’ll end up liking the 2017 Honda Ridgeline more than Andrew Collins did, simply because I have no need for a truck that can tow a moon while climbing Mt. Everest like most truck owners think they do.

Maybe you just need something with a bed that you can throw shit into, and drives comfortably and normally the rest of the time. I get the appeal of that, although part of me would always wonder whether I was better off in a Colorado or a Tacoma.

At any rate, the poor Ridgeline will always be dogged by the reputation that it’s not truck enough, which as HammerheadFistpunch points out here, is kind of a shame:

Buy the car (or truck) you want and don’t worry about what other people think.

On the other hand, maybe the Ridgeline just needs more country music songs about it.
