At this point, trucks are nowhere near car levels of refinement. They are better than they were 15 years ago, but yeah not that great
Yea but how are the body gaps because a friends brand new 2018 is horrid.


I almost think it rides shittier than his JK he had previous to it. At least it’s leaps and bounds worse off-road too!

Nothing yet as I just rolled over 1,000 miles and the manual said to get at least that before towing anything. But only things I plan on haulin' are kids and a Kawasaki Mule that we use for ice fishing.
didn't need a 60k 150 for that heavy load. #Ridgeline

Ridgeline only tows ~5,000lbs. When you add a trailer, Mule, gear, and a lot of big fish...it just doesn't work. You're pressing your luck. You've gotta go at least half ton pickup.

the Mustang weighs about 3,000 pounds, and my friend told me the trailer weighs 1,800 pounds. So that puts us at a trailer load of 4,800 pounds
...
we were three guys weighing an average of 175 pounds. Plus, we had about 350 pounds in tools, spare tires and wheels.

But where the real surprise came was in the ride. Even with the trailer loading the truck’s rear end, the Ridgeline still drove nearly as well as it did without the trailer, which is to say... very well.

The ride was smooth, and the truck felt stable even with the trailer holding it back and even while driving over bumps. The Lane Keep Assist made positioning the Ridgeline and trailer between the lines a non-issue—it really made all the difference for me, someone who doesn’t tow often (especially considering the truck didn’t have trailer-tow mirrors).

Then we got to the hills. And you know what? The Ridgeline didn’t care. The truck barely downshifted up the grades, with the 280 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 having plenty of power to yank that Mustang up the inclines, and the cooling system having more than enough capacity to keep that coolant temperature smack dab in the center.

Every time I got to a steep hill, I’d just wait for the revs to increase to redline, and the truck to start bogging down. But it didn’t. The Ridgeline muscled that car over the mountains like it was nothing, and—perhaps more importantly— I felt safe and confident all the while.

So the Ridgeline not only had good ride quality while towing, but the Lane Keep Assist made me feel confident yanking that car 1,200 miles, the V6 and six-speed trans were more than enough to hold 65 mph up grades, and acceleration and braking exceeded my expectations.

In the end, the truck got the Mustang back to my house after scoring 17 MPG with the trailer. My two buddies and I unloaded the pony and just looked at each other in amazement. This little Honda is a beast.

Also, 1st gen Mustangs were under 2,500lbs. This article is very misleading from the get go.
