Best All-Around Truck: Honda Ridgeline

Do you want a truck that’s safe for you and your family? Are you looking for a truck with the latest technology? Do you want the versatility of a truck but don’t always need a truck?

The Honda Ridgeline is the truck for you.

It’ll handle all the typical midsize truck duties; pulling a ATV and what not. But it’ll also be a perfect tailgater or camping truck. It has a full-sealed cooler storage area in the bed. It has speakers in the bed.

It’s an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for 2017. The headlights don’t suck in the dark.

The truck has radar cruise control. Blind spot monitoring and lane keeping help keep you on the straight and narrow.

Plus you can plug your phone in with Android Auto or Apple Car Play — yes, the Colorado has that too — if you don’t like Honda’s infotainment.

It’s not the truck for someone who likes to off-road. Also, it’s not the truck for someone who tows all the time. But it is the best well-rounded midsize truck we’ve driven so far.

It does what Hondas do well. It’s the Honda of midsize trucks.
