2011 Honda Ridgeline Review

The 2011 Honda Ridgeline offers a comfortable ride, some innovative cargo features and strong safety scores, making it a good choice among compact trucks.

Pros & Cons

  • Car-like ride
  • Innovative tailgate and in-bed trunk
  • Strong safety score
  • Cheap interior materials

2011 Honda Ridgeline Overview

Reviewers were impressed with the 2011 Ridgeline’s ride comfort, and said that its car-based platform gives it a more refined ride than most other trucks. They also said the standard V6 has plenty of power for most drivers, but admitted that the Ridgeline doesn’t have the muscle for heavy hauling and towing like its V8-powered rivals do. The Ridgeline comes standard with all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. The Ridgeline achieves 15/20 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. Maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, which is less than what rivals like the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier can tow.

Some reviewers complained about the abundance of cheap plastics in the Ridgeline's cabin, but others gave the truck high marks for offering ample storage space for smaller items. The Ridgeline has a crew cab body that seats up to five. Reviewers found the front seats supportive and comfortable. They liked the Ridgeline’s tailgate that not only drops down but swings to one side. Reviewers also appreciated the Ridgeline's lockable in-bed trunk, which can hold up to 8.5 cubic feet of cargo. The 2011 Ridgeline includes standard features like power windows, locks and mirrors, a power rear-sliding window and a six-speaker stereo. Available features when it was new include leather seats with front power adjustment and heat, an upgraded stereo with satellite radio and an auxiliary input jack, navigation, a power sunroof, Bluetooth and dual-zone climate control.

Other Trucks to Consider

The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is highly-rated thanks to its high-quality interior and refined driving dynamics. The Tacoma can also tow more than the Ridgeline and is available with a longer cargo bed, even with the crew cab.

The 2011 Nissan Frontier is available with a crew cab, and reviewers liked its strong engine choices. The Frontier also has strong safety scores, and can tow a bit more than the Ridgeline.
