2012 Honda Ridgeline Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Only competitive when it was brand-new, the Honda Ridgeline has fallen behind the best-in-class pickups for gas mileage.

Because it's a Honda, and because it's a not-quite-full-size, V-6 truck, you might think the Ridgeline should be better at fuel economy. This year, the EPA rates the Ridgeline at 15/21 mpg, a boost of one mile per gallon on the highway, which Honda credits to improvements in the drivetrain. Still, those numbers are only slightly better than the basic V-8-powered Chevy Silverado, and a few figures shy of the latest Ford F-150 V-6, which is rated at 17/23 mpg.

Honda doesn't have a lock on gas mileage, as the Ridgeline's mediocre numbers suggest.

Honda hasn't said whether it will offer a hybrid or diesel Ridgeline--but has indicated it's committed to selling the Ridgeline at least through the 2012 model year.
