Best Trucks: 2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Honda Ridgeline (tie)

Honda reintroduced the Ridgeline for the 2017 model year, and the new version caters to truck buyers who are more concerned with practicality and day-to-day civility than prodigious towing or off-roading. While it’s not as rugged as some alternatives, it offers a smooth, carlike ride and excellent bed and in-cabin storage options. It’s also available with more active safety features than the norm for the segment, such as automatic braking and lane keep assist. All those attributes propel the Ridgeline to the top spot in our compact pickup truck rankings.
