2014 Honda Ridgeline Denver, CO
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline near Denver, CO is Honda’s offering in the realm of trucks. While it doesn’t have the overpowered engine or tank like driving experience, the Ridgeline retains much of what defines good Honda vehicles. It drives more like a car than any truck on the market and while it has towing and off-road abilities, it is more suited for driving around town, deftly maneuvering around corners and curves. Of course, it does have plenty of power and a full truck bed, and with five available trim levels, it has enough options to fit any demand.
With interesting twists on common truck conventions, such as a tailgate that has two sets of hinges, one set that either lowers down like a regular truck, or one that swings out like a door, the 2014 Honda Ridgeline sets itself apart from much of its competition by simply doing things smarter, not harder.
