Peppy motor, decent fuel economy, decent payload, adequate towing. In the twisties Iíd leave that g damn F150 for dead. Peragon Tonneau, full audio system with Pioneer HU running wireless CarPlay/AA, 5 channel amp, speakers, sub, alarm I run from my phone and can monitor the vehicle from anywhere in the world with a cellular signal. Enkeis. With tax, interest, registration, doc fees, still ainít at 40k all in. 0% on them hos right now I think. Wish I would have got that but time was running out. All 2020ís have standard ADAS. So still a solid option right now if you donít mind Hal9000. Hello Dave, maybe youíd like a stress pill?
Ridgeline didn't work for me; it required too much control be given up to Hal (specifically gear selection), and there is no headache rack available from Honda or anyone else for that matter, there are many more reasons as well; the under-bed trunk was at the expense of shallow bed walls; I'd take taller bed walls over a trunk so I can do truck stuff; Payload is my biggest want in a truck, that's what I use them for, putting stuff in the bed (wood, gravel, sand, mulch etc.). Towing is secondary, the 5,000lbs is probably enough for me, but there are times where I'd be right up to that limit (because cars are freaking heavy now). Have you swapped out your shift knob cover/trim? That rubbery touch point skeeved me out on the test drive. Having the "best handling truck" is like having the "sedan with the most ground clearance" - it doesn't matter to me; I'm not going off-roading in my sedan, and I'm not trying to carve corners in my truck; as long as I can drive my car down a gravel road or my wife can drive the truck down windy backroads at 10 over the speed limit without worrying about losing control it's fine.
