The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is the just-right pickup most users really need. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable.
