    Honda put together a video to try and sell their new pickup's off road skills.

    10mins. It could not climb the hill without the axels locked, then at the end it shows the great suspension travel. One tire 4 feet in the air, going over hills.

    I didn't see anything a stock K5 couldn't do in 2wd. I like how the said the video shows it's off road abilitys, and never once left the road, LOL.

    A Subaru could do that and then some.:surepal: I like how that poll smoker tells the passenger " I'm sorry if it upsets You if I speed up a little though this mild section" :surepal: One thing for sure You wont see a Ridgeline pulling a 5th wheel any time soon. I shouldn't say that cause Im sure some crazy Honda engineer is working on a prototype full float independent rear suspension:whistle:
