2019 Honda Ridgeline Touring Road Test

After winning the 2017 North American Truck of the Year with the second-generation Ridgeline, which was really a Honda pickup sandwich thanks to the Civic earning Car of the Year in 2016 and new Accord making it a hat trick for 2018, it appears as if the Japanese brand can’t lose.  Impressive as such awards are, much more important wins on the sales…
