2011 Honda Ridgeline: 15/20 mpg
EPA

if you're going to sell a unibody pickup with a V-6 on the basis of fuel economy, then you've got to do better than 15/20 mpg.
Automobile




The Ridgeline's proposition is that it's the Honda of pickups, and shoppers might automatically think it's lighter and more efficient because of the brand's reputation. It fares about as well as some full-size pickups in fuel economy, but it's a smaller truck with less of the outright towing and hauling capability of those larger vehicles.

The EPA rates the Ridgeline at 15/20 mpg for its single drivetrain configuration--V-6 and four-wheel drive, coupled to an automatic transmission. It's about the same fuel economy you'd get in a base V-8-powered Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which tops the Ridgeline at 15/22 mpg. The V-6 Ford F-150 hits 17/23 mpg, though it may not be as quick as the Ridgeline.

Honda hasn't said whether it will offer a hybrid or diesel Ridgeline--or even if it will keep selling the truck beyond the 2011 model year.

Conclusion

The 2011 Honda Ridgeline doesn't pace the field with fuel economy, though its drivetrain and packaging might suggest it should.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
