  • Honda Ridgeline


    The Honda Ridgeline is a Sport Utility Truck (SUT) by American Honda Motor Company, Inc. and is categorized by some as a lifestyle pickup. The Ridgeline is one of only two trucks currently produced by the Honda Motor Company—the second being the Honda Acty mini-truck. This SUT is built using a unibody frame, a transverse-mounted engine, four-wheel independent suspension, and is only offered in a crew-cab/short-box configuration with one powertrain. Honda also built unique features into the Ridgeline not found in other mid-size trucks, such as: Industry's first In-Bed Trunk Dual-action tailgate Flat truck bed Flat cabin floor All-wheel driveContrary to some media reporting, Honda's publications state that the first generation (Gen1) (2006–2014) Ridgeline was a uniquely engineered vehicle with 7% of its components shared with other Honda vehicles. Its powertrain resembled the one used in the Gen1 (2000–2006) Acura MDX but was modified for heavier hauling and towing duties. The second generation (Gen2) (2017–present) Ridgeline took a different approach sharing a design with the third generation (Gen3) (2016–present) Honda Pilot.

  • Honda Pilot


    The Honda Pilot is a mid-size crossover SUV manufactured by Honda and introduced in 2002. Primarily aimed at the North American market, the Pilot is the largest SUV from Honda and features three-row seating. Pilots are currently manufactured in Lincoln, Alabama, and the Pilot was produced in Alliston, Ontario until April 2007. The first generation Pilot was released in April 2002 as a 2003 model. The Pilot shares its platform with the Acura MDX, as well as the Odyssey minivan and the Accord sedan. The Pilot's unibody construction and independent suspension are designed to provide handling similar to that of a car, and it has integrated perimeter frame rails to allow towing and light off-road use. Prior to the introduction of the Pilot, Honda marketed the compact crossover CR-V, and the Honda Passport, (a rebadged Isuzu Rodeo) that was a pickup truck-based design. The Pilot is Honda's largest SUV, although the 2010 Crosstour surpassed the Pilot in length. The Pilot is sold in North America and the Middle East, while the Honda MDX (first generation Acura MDX) was marketed in Japan and Australia for several years.
