2012 Honda Ridgeline: 15/21 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




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 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.

 

Conclusion

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

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.
