The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability. For those of us who don't live on a ranch, the 2008 Nissan Frontier is large enough to haul real people and cargo, but sized for the urban-congestion reality.
