The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The showpiece of the 2012 Chevy Avalanche is the clever midgate, but it's also easy to drive, and has lots of useful storage hidden inside and out. Efficient and burly, the 2012 Ford F-150 shares the lead in full-size trucks thanks to extreme capability and extreme high-tech features. The 2012 Honda Ridgeline won't satisfy those who need a real full-size truck, but for those who need hauling on occasion, it offers an interesting alternative.
