The 2014 Honda Ridgeline has fallen behind the best of the full-size pickup trucks in fuel economy--which is an odd place for any Honda to find itself. You might think that it would be better, since it's not quite full-size and has no V-8 engine option, only a V-6. But you'd be wrong.
When the Ridgeline launched in 2006, it was essentially competitive with the crop of trucks then on the market. In the intervening years, Chevrolet, Ford, and Ram have redesigned their pickups, and all now have at least one model with a higher combined EPA fuel economy rating.
Consider that the combined ratings for the most efficient pickups from the Detroit Three--which have far more cargo capacity and higher tow ratings--are 20 mpg for rear-wheel-drive V-6 models from Chevrolet, GMC, and Ram, and 18 mpg for the Ford F-150 with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6.
The Ridgeline, on the other hand, is rated by the EPA at 17 mpg combined (15 mpg city, 21 mpg highway). And at that rating, the Ridgeline sits at the bottom of the list.
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline was never great on gas mileage, whereas full-size pickups have improved lately.
