Never consider myself a "truck-guy" but now I don't think I could consider driving something other than the Ridgeline type truck/SUV/car. I consider the outside looks a blend of a truck and SUV but it really drives like a car. I use the truck bed way more than I could have imagined but it still never feels like I'm driving a truck. It feels better than my wifes Lexus 470 and that's no knock on the 470. The bottom line is the inside feels like an SUV, the back is enough of a truck for what 90% of us need when hauling things and it drives like a solid car...couldn't be happier!
Truck bed, flip-down and swinging gate, trunk under truck bed and big/simple contols on dash.
A better door locking/child-safety locking system. It's tricky.
