The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability. The 2009 Suzuki Equator is capable, versatile, and rugged for towing and off-roading, but it's not the best choice for day-to-day on-road use.
