Honda Ridgeline with Unibody construction

Compared with most pickup trucks on the market, the Ridgeline comes only in a one-size-fits-all configuration with 4 doors, seating for five and a five-foot-long cargo place. A distinctive characteristic of this cargo bed is a compact covered trunk inside. It usually is accessed via the tailgate, which both folds down, like other pickups, but also swings to the side for easier access.
Unibody construction means Ridgeline is the only pickup that doesn’t attach its body to a separate frame. It instead uses car-type engineering in which body and frame essentially are a single, lighter-weight unit. Honda reinforces the structure to make it roughly as rigid as a conventional compact pickup’s though Ridgeline is not as well-suited to extreme off-roading or at-the-payload-limit hauling.

The four wheels are powered by a 3.5-liter 250-horsepower V6 truck engine through a 5 speed auto transmission. The EPA rates the EPA’s fuel economy at 15 mpg in the town and 21 mpg on the hwy.
