If you are in the market for a preowned truck offering heavy-duty performance and innovative cargo solutions, check out this 2006 Ridgeline EX-L at Island Honda. This platform is ideal for around the job site or at home, plus it’s affordable with a price below $20,000.
Under the hood, the 2006 Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 engine to create a bold 225 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with all-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission, you can tow up to 2,273 kg with this rig or carry a payload of 705 kg. Worried this will cost you at the pumps? Fuel economy will run you 14.4/10.1 L/100 km city/highway, which is reasonably thrifty for a truck of this size and capability.
Around back, the dent- and rust-resistant composite bed doesn’t require a bedliner, making it a great all-in-one solution. When Honda engineered the Ridgeline, they also raised the floor of the bed, creating a flat surface that can accommodate cargo without bumping into wheel wells. With a size of 1.2 by 1.5 metres, you’ll be able to carry full sheets of plywood with the tailgate down. Inside the cabin, the 60/40-split rear bench seat can also fold upwards to fit a full set of golf clubs. Neat, right?

If you are seeking a rugged preowned truck for the job site and at home, choose the 2006 Honda Ridgeline EX-L as your next rig. According to Driving.ca, one of the key attributes of this midsize platform is the pickup’s all-wheel drive system, which is vastly superior to part-time systems offered by the competition.
As you travel across the Comox Valley, the Ridgeline will distribute power on a pro-active basis, switching from front-wheel to all-wheel drive as the conditions demand. Under hard acceleration, power will be sent to all four wheels to reduce wheelspin and torque steer, while regular conditions will utilize front-wheel drive for efficiency. The Ridgeline also features Vehicle Stability Assist to shuttle power from left to right, plus there is a lock button to hold the system in 4x4 mode.

If you are looking for a truck with a strong platform to handle the challenges of winter, slip into a 2006 Honda Ridgeline EX-L and prepare to be amazed. According to Driving.ca, the Ridgeline boasts a unibody chassis with a fully boxed frame for incredible stiffness and rigidity on Comox Valley roads.
In fact, unlike other option on the market, the Ridgeline’s body-on-frame chassis achieves 2.5 times better bending rigidity than the best body-on-frame compact truck. As a result, the reviewers at Driving.ca noted that the truck doesn’t become pretzel-like when it is torqued and its ride is quieter with fewer rattles, squeaks and other road noises that plague other pickups.
Also noteworthy is the Ridgeline’s front struts and multi-link rear suspensions, which provide a solid base for the truck to ride on. With this combination, the pickup’s dynamics are firm enough to deal with high payloads (up to 705 kg), but still cushiony to absorb ruts and bumps on winter terrain. With this kind of on-road quality, you’ll always be able to motor with confidence and enjoy decent handling, even on unpredictable topography. All this is matched with responsive steering for the utmost in control.
