2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport Road Test and Review
2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport Review: Introduction
After dominating the car, crossover and minivan segments over the years, Honda took a shot at the pickup truck market in 2006 with the Honda Ridgeline. Six years later, this unconventional sport utility truck is far from a sales success, but the 2012 Honda Ridgeline does provide a unique blend of a car-like ride with the practicality and versatility expected from a pickup to make a perfect family vehicle that is fully capable of towing a boat, hauling motorcycles or just making runs to the home improvement store. New for 2012, Honda added a new Sport trim level to give its aging truck a little more visual flash, and we recently had the chance to drive the 2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport for this weeklong review to get a sense of where the Ridgeline stands in regards to the modern pickup truck landscape.
