2006 Honda Ridgeline RTS 3.5L V6 from North America
The new direction for pickup trucks, the domestics have a lot to live up to
As a previous Accord V6 and Pilot owner I was a little worried about acceleration, and in town it does feel a little laborious unless you keep it in D3 or lower.
In the mountains and on dirt trails it is far superior to the pilot and any other 4WD I have owned, though I wouldn't want to take it off road.
On twisty roads it handles more like a sedan than any truck. Lots of passenger room and the in bed trunk is a marvelous feature.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don’t think this vehicle competes with “real” pick-ups. How many sheets of plywood can it carry? How about bales of hay or maybe a motorcycle?

Yeah, that "bed trunk" is a marvelous idea at first, but not so well thought out. It holds the spare tire.
So, what happens if you have a load of something in the bed and get a flat?
