2014 Honda Ridgeline Road Test

Aaron Bragman

Offering some pickup truck utility with the ride, handling and fuel economy of a minivan, the Honda Ridgeline sounds like it should be a hit, but its awkward styling and an embarrassingly outdated interior have kept it from being one.

A Honda pickup truck always sounded like an oxymoron, like something that couldn't or shouldn't exist. But the Ridgeline has been around since 2006, a boxy, four-door crew cab that's always seemed like the answer to a question nobody asked: What if Honda built a pickup? The truck itself is built off Honda's minivan/SUV platform — it's essentially a beefed-up Odyssey underneath, with standard all-wheel drive and a 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The company has announced that 2014 will be the last model year for the Ridgeline as we know it, with the truck taking a brief hiatus for 2015 and returning as a totally redesigned 2016 model. The changes from 2013 to 2014 are minor and include the addition of a Special Edition model with blacked-out trim similar to the Sport model; see the changes yourself here. With the current Ridgeline run coming to a close, a quick evaluation of the truck seemed in order. Has it aged well? Is it still too quirky for mainstream America, or has familiarity bred acceptance?
