    I had a B-210 Datsun that made it up steeper hills when I was 16 and an idiot.

    The Ridgeline is part of Honda's "truck" line including the very manly CRV.

    And I've been over steeper stuff in a Spitfire - that said, it's more of a driver thing than a vehicle thing.

    :flipoff2:

    I think Honda is going after an interesting market with the Ridgeline, honestly. There are a lot of people out there who aren't really "truck owners" and this thing sort of bridges the gap between SUV, truck and car all at the same time - too bad the gas mileage sucks.

    ive seen a little ricer car make it up a hill like that many of times.......its like one of the entrances to my apartment complex and a guy that uses that way owns a small little "fast furious" type car.

    I did crazier stuff in my '90 ford tauras. I used to try to follow my friends in their 4runner and 82 blazer. That was interesting.

    It is not a truck. I don't believe the crap they write in the rags.

    Cripes, I used to " Mr. Majestyk" my old 1970 Ford Galxie 500 up a dirt roads on hills that was worse than that. Sheesh.

    And I can't figure out WTF the appeal is about the Ridgeline and the Avalanche are. They're a crossbreed between a pickup and an SUV, with the worse features of both and none of the best features. I don't see any running around with a bed cap to keep gear dry, unless you want to limit space with a flush tonneau cover. And no one dumps a load of gravel in them. They look like they mainly are bought by uneducated boobs. I saw an Avalanche the other day with graphics in the rear window taunting Ford owners. "Eat Me, Ford Boy" and other ghey sayings. I didn't see anything special about his Avalanche that would lead me to believe he could keep up with a stock FJ40 in some serious s***. What an ass.
