If you are in the market for a truck that will turn heads, handle turns, and tow, the Honda Ridgeline — the only truck in the Honda lineup — is still available at Benson Honda, one of the leading Honda dealers in San Antonio, TX.
“The Ridgeline’s not going anywhere,” said Honda spokesman Chuck Schifsky to the Birmingham News. “There is no plan currently underway or any plan in the works to kill the Ridgeline. We feel it it’s important to have a pickup truck in the line.”
Rumors have been swirling about the discontinuation of the truck, which was named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year in 2006, but they are untrue. The unique truck is still selling, even after a parts shortage following the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Production resumed there last month. The Ridgeline features a 250-horsepower, 3.5 liter, V-6 engine, which is enough power for any big job. The truck can tow 5,000 pounds, but drives much like an SUV. The dual characteristics of the truck make it the perfect combination vehicle for those who need a commuting vehicle for day and a powerhouse truck for night. The crew cab fits five people — plenty of room for the whole family — and the truck’s bed is five feet long. The tailgate can fold down or open from the side, allowing for maximum flexibility, and a concealed compartment adds 8.5 cubic feet to the storage space.
The 2011 Honda Ridgeline was rated “good” — the highest score possible — in front and side impact protection from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Safety features include front and side airbags, rollover sensing side curtain airbags for both rows, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes.
