2008 Honda Ridgeline Review

This innovated Honda Ridgeline, a four-door pickup, has been made bigger and more space-efficient as a vehicle. I find it even tougher with its front bumper (which have structural members that extend down to prevent the truck from overriding a lover or smaller vehicle in a collision - for safety) with a honeycomb grille and 22 inch rims. Such may be the design though we know that not all people are attracted with its exterior looks. From the side, it looks very much a solid piece - no are gaps between the cab and the box, which is a concept applied in several pickup trucks.

Being spacey, we could probably hide some stuff and goodies without feeling brimmed for the vehicle comes with pretty good storage provisions. It has a four-wheel independent suspension, enabling the vehicle to run smoother. It is equipped with 255 bhp v6 engine joined with a five speed automatic transmission. Its standard mode is the all-wheel-drive. These features make it very much ideal for road trips and long travels.

Interiorly, it is engineered to specifically emphasize spacing, with large center armrest or storage console provide in multiple levels, and including a deep bottom one. Giving it a neat look makes it unsupplied with bottle holders in the door pockets, which is a bit surprising. But, what is generally important is that they’ve used superior quality parts for the interior.

It has an 8.2 inches ground clearance with low cal floor for ease of entry and exit. It just doesn’t sound well for having non-adjustable pedals and steering wheels that doesn’t telescope.

Having a four-wheel independent suspension, where usually the truck-based variety has a solid rear axle, the vehicle capitulate both the ride and handling, enabling the vehicle to raise its center of gravity and its rollover capacity.

It is said to have better lateral grips in turns than the Honda Accord coupe, for having an efficient rack-and-pinion steering that provides confidence-inspiring precision.

According to the company’s research, owners of pickup trucks make up about 65% to 75% of 5 million customers. This just proves that it really moves up the sales of Honda so they are very much dedicated in upgrading the kinds.

In 2010, the Honda Ridgeline is proposed to have a V6 Diesel, for Honda continues its quest to captivate the market with fuel efficient vehicles.
