1. 2017 Honda Ridgeline
The mid-sized 2017 Honda Ridgeline is a smart pickup with styling borrowed from the Honda Pilot. It looks more sophisticated and sensible than its predecessor. It has tough construction, lockable trunk space found below the bed floor, and fully independent suspension (used rear and front). Finally, the independent suspension makes the pickup a relaxed and composed ride.
The Ridgeline has a composite bed that is both scratch and rust resistant; a feature that perfectly fits your needs. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a 5000-pound towing capacity. Coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, it is the best fuel-efficient non-diesel powered pickup at 20mpg.
