The vehicles you listed along with the Dodge Rampage and Subaru Brat are classified as "coupé utility".Are the Chevy el Camino, GMC Caballero, or Ford Ranchero considered trucks with the current definitions provided here? Owning several "trucks" and a couple of el Caminos over the past fifty some years, I would consider the Ridgeline more on the line of a modern version of the el Camino, and I do not mean that in a derogatory way by any means!
And that is a pretty accurate description of the Ridgeline, is it not?Ford referred to the first of those - the Ranchero - as a pickup truck.
"More than a car . . . more than a truck . . . the Ranchero is a new idea in motor vehicles!"
"It's the only pickup truck that rides, handles and feels exactly like a car!"
