The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're torn between an SUV and a pickup and cutting-edge styling isn't important, the 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac might be the answer. The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability.
