No person looking to honestly tow/haul anything of real magnitude or go offroad at all would even consider a ridgeline.

Yes small trucks don't offer v8's(although some do....colorado, dakota, etc) but the ridgeline is a "full size".

You are also correct it is AWD. But this is another reason it's more of a car and not a truck. AWD is vastly different than 4WD. It just isn't tough, heavy duty, strong, etc. It's essentially a car with a truck body.
Lol I agree with everything you say, I guess its like a Jeep Compass or patriot. but Its marketed as a Jeep, but it's actually a caliber underneath and no one who would do serious offroad would really consider a Compass (minus a few exceptions). A Compass is an urban jeep just like the ridgeline is an urban truck.
