Last winter, I drove more than 4000 miles in a 2011 Ridgeline while carrying a dirtbike or pulling a 3500-lb. travel trailer. For the most part, I love this vehicle. It has nimble handling like a car, albeit a large one. Though capacities are modest by American pickup-truck standards, it will still tow 5000 lbs. or carry up to 1546 lbs. of payload. And the Ridgeline is much more versatile than your average pickup. It seats five, and folding the rear seats down reveals a cavernous amount of luggage space. The tailgate opens vertically or horizontally, and there’s another 8.5 cubic feet of lockable cargo area beneath the bed, along with three 12-volt power outlets. There’s also a 115-volt socket in the center console to charge your laptop or other electronic devices.
