The Ridgeline offers me all the capability I need and it drives like an accord.
I think I paid $33k for my 2017 F150 XLT Super crew cab with the 2.7lt eco boost, sport package, 302a, trailer package, and had the seats reupholstered in the cat skinz leather (amazing leather btw). Only issue Iíve had so far is within the first 1500 miles or so, the vacuum hose going to the waste gate exploded. Apparently this was an issue and a TSB was issued, had the car back same day I dropped it off.

Truck now has 46,000 and it just barely started to do the white smoke on startup due to carbon buildup on the valves. Thankfully I bought the extended warranty as Iím sure they will either replace or rebuild the head sooner rather than later. If it wasnít for my job, Iíd probably consider a ridgeline. My bed is scratched to **** (not lined) from all the stuff Iíve thrown back there. Winter time I can average 24 miles on the freeway and get about 20 or so in city. Pretty impressed with that.
