Ratings Roundup: 2014 Ridgeline


You don’t want to judge a book by its cover with the 2014 Ridgeline. The exterior has a sleek and modern feel, but it is equipped to be a hardworking pickup truck. The 2014 Ridgeline has up to 5000 lbs of towing capacity, and a 3.5L V6 engine with Honda’s Variable Torque Management 4-Wheel Drive System. It can definitely hold its own against other vehicles in its class, while maintaining a easy and comfortable drive that you would expect from a Honda.

Kelley Blue Book gave the 2014 Ridgeline an expert rating of 7.6 out of 10, and it currently has a consumer rating of 9.2 out of 10. They said that this year’s Ridgeline would be a great choice for first time truck buyers! They found that the Ridgeline’s Dual Action Tailgate (which opens down like a traditional tailgate, and it also opens out, like a door) makes it very easy to load up. Also, it handles like a car, which made for an easy and comfortable driving experience.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2014 Ridgeline a Top Safety Pick for the third year in a row! That means that it received a “Good” rating in all four crash test categories!

The Car Connection gave the 2014 Ridgeline an overall score of 7.2 out of 10. They found that the Ridgeline was a mixture of a mid sized and full sized pickup truck. They liked how the exterior was “carlike”, and found that it drove smoothly like an SUV. The truck bed is 5 feet long (slightly shorter than other vehicles in its class), but it also has a hidden storage compartment for extra cargo.  In addition, they enjoyed that a rearview camera is now standard with the Honda Ridgeline.
