The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability. Especially with the improved V-8, the 2008 Dodge Dakota can do most of what a full-size truck can while consuming fewer resources in the process.
