When I first put my RL in the garage I was surprised that it was almost as big as the 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab, Short Box, 4WD I used to own. So I dug up some specs, and the two actually are quite similar. It's almost as if Honda took the GMC, sawed off the front foot or so of the bed, and added a second row of seats. Anyway, here's the info FWIW.

Code:
[SIZE="2"]Parameter		RL	GMC 

Vehicle Length		210.0	203.2
Vehicle Width		78.6	78.5
Vehicle Height		70.8	73.8
Wheelbase		125.2	119.0
Bed Length		64.0	78.7
Bed Width 		60.0	63.8
Bed Depth		15.0	19.5
Bed Volume(cf)		33.9	56.9
Gnd Clearance		7.87	8.5
Curb Weight		4453	4331
GCVW			6019	6100
Payload			1543	1598
Towing Max.		5000	5000 (7100 w/ RPO Z85 or Z71)[/SIZE]

I had mentioned my dad's new 4wd Chevy Pickup back in the day. It was actually a '78.

I looked up some specs too... The inline six 250 cu in. motor made, wait for it.... 105 hp.

It did have two hundred something ft. lbs. of torque and towed 6500 lbs. It also weighed slightly less than the Ridgeline.

A lot of the magazines have mentioned these facts already. Pickups in general have gotten bigger and bigger as each redesign have occurred. And one reason why mid sized trucks have appeared since then as they are actually the size of a older full size truck.
And they don't call them mini pickups anymore like they used to when the Ranger was a big seller with it's 4cyl engine ! lol
