Drive Wire: The Honda Ridgeline Debuts at the North American International Auto Show

In Detroit Auto Show news, the much anticipated Honda Ridgeline made its grand debut. In a segment made up of serious workmobiles, this Japanese mid-size pickup truck is trying to be the fun one, with an in-bed stereo system for those impromptu tailgate parties. It’s still a useful truck, with a 4-foot-wide bed and a decent 3.5 liter V-6, but it’s definitely on the casual side as opposed to rock crawling or lumber hauling. Looking at the way most people use their trucks, we think Honda might be on to something here.
