The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
4.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is the most comfortable truck you can drive today. It has the capability that many casual buyers want, but it’s not the choice for heavy duty users. The 2018 Nissan Frontier is a good, basic truck, but there are far more modern options for not too much more.
