Review: 2013 Honda Ridgeline

2013-Honda-Ridgeline

The 2013 Honda Ridgeline is a safe and sportier midsized pickup, so if you are looking to an alternative from the Dodge Ram or Chevy Silverado, the Ridgeline is a great truck to consider.

Not all truck drivers are looking to haul cattle, spaceships, or a barn full of wood, and that’s where we think the Honda Ridgeline fits in. As someone who has always driven a Honda Civic or a Honda Accord, a truck can be a difficult choice, especially for urban settings with require a truck. The Ridgeline though is modeled as the sporty truck, especially the Ridgeline’s Sport model, with features  18-inch alloy wheels, sporty styled headlights, privacy glass and a leather steering wheel.

Review: 2013 Honda Pilot

 

2013-Honda-Pilot

The 2013 Honda Pilot adds a backup camera standard on all models, along with room for 8.

The 2013 Honda Pilot is one of the best choices for a larger families. It’s one of the few vehicles that offers comfortable seating for up to 8 people, and with a backup camera now standard across the lineup, the Pilot is one of the most practical choices for those seeking a large SUV.

We’ve always found the Pilot to be one of the most underrated vehicles in Honda’s lineup. There isn’t a wasted millimeter of space in the Pilot. There’s room for 8 people to sit inside, and even taller passengers will fit comfortably in the back of a Pilot. Sometimes we look at 3-row models and think “who would fit in that third row,” but we don’t think that’s the case in the 2013 Honda Pilot.

While the Pilot is relatively the same as previous models, a backup camera is now standard on all 2013 Honda Pilot models. This is a big step forward, because we know it can be hard to fit a larger SUV into a tight space. Those problems are now a thing of the past.
