I was hoping somebody would jump on this good news. I was sitting on an airplane flying back from Denver on Sunday. I opened up my new C&D to find this comparison test. I was so excited to find out where the RL finished but did not jump ahead, reading the entire article. Ok, the Colorado finished 5th, the Dakota finished 4th (getting more excited), the Tacoma finished 3rd (really getting excited) and finally the Frontier finishing 2nd. The decision was nothing short of a landslide. Of course, the anti-Ridgeline folks will be quick to jump on the off-road limitations but the Ridgeline smoked the competition in all of the real-world applications. Well done, Honda!
