Honda Ridgeline
Front impact: Good
Side Impact: Good
Whiplash protection: Good
Stability Control: Standard
Top Safety Pick: Yes

The Ridgeline is very different from the other trucks in this group. Although it has the primary functional attribute of a pick-up, an open bed, it's built more like a crossover SUV, with the body and frame created as a single structure. For strength, the Ridgeline has an added sub-frame structure.

Like all Honda vehicles aside from the soon-to-be-discontinued S2000 sports car, the Ridgeline has head- and body-protecting side airbags as standard equipment.
