And you have to buy a $55k truck to get that crazy tailgate. Just wait till the start getting dirt and gravel in to the works of the tailgate bet it turns into a pile of do do.I think their tailgate is perfect proof of that. Too bad you can't even get to it with a long load in the truck. Or lower the step with a turnover ball in the receiver.
Every truck has a dent or ding in the tailgate eventually.And you have to buy a $55k truck to get that crazy tailgate. Just wait till the start getting dirt and gravel in to the works of the tailgate bet it turns into a pile of do do.
The Ridgeline should not be compared in the midsize truck category. I think of the Ridgeline as 4 door El Camino or Ranchero!Ranger #2 Most Safe Midsize Trucks
If one is of the school of thought that the Ridgeline is not a 'true or proper' pickup truck - lack of body on frame or frame and cab being separate, separate open box etc. Then that would place the Ranger as #1 in the safety tests.
I do think uni-body vehicles like the Ridgeline should be tested in a separate class than body on frame vehicles as their construction design are by their nature different. Uni-body has gotten better but it is still not the same as a body on frame. A car type vehicle will crumple up differently than a more solid body on frame truck.
