If it was a lonely open highway then i would think about stretching it's rpm legs but not during heavy work traffic.

Its nice to know that i may have a chance though.

Thanks.

"Atempta-truck," that's a good one, I like it!

Copied from a Ridgeline Forum:


Make/Model ------------- Trans -- HP -- Engine - Overall MPG - 0-60
=================== ====== === ======= ========== =====
Dodge Ram 1500 -------- auto 5 - 345 - 5.7L V8 ---- 11 ------- 7.7
Honda Ridgeline ------- auto 5 - 255 - 3.5L V6 ----- 15 ------- 8.6


Make/Model---------------Trans---HP---Engine---Overall MPG---1/4 mile
=================== ====== === ======= ========== ========
Dodge Ram 1500 5.7------auto 5--345--5.7L V8------11-------16.1 @ 87
Honda Ridgeline--------auto 5--255---3.5L V6----15--------16.8 @ 83

Looks like they changed some gearing though for 2009 and now have a 0-60 of 7.7 seconds and 1/4 mile time closer to 16 seconds.

Ridgeline isn't a truck...its a damn minivan with the rear roof cut off. Ask the guy which way his engine sits in the engine bay...just like a minivan...

At least the Avalanche is based off a truck platform and can do real work. I'd be afraid of breaking a ridgeline

I actually like the Ridgeline. Because fact of the matter is that most people don't use their trucks for what they are capable of. For about 80% of people who own trucks, a Ridgeline would do them well. Not that I would get one though. That VTM-4 4wd system is weird. Plus I like to offroad, with ground clearance, and I like the HEMI.

Fair enough. Its not a truck, but it still does what it was intended to do. I'll stop for fear of being hated on though lol
