Honda Vehicle Popularity in Boulder Colorado
While the stereotypical notion is that everyone drives Subarus in Boulder, that's just not the case. Honda is a popular car brand in the United States, known for its reliability, fuel efficiency, and affordability. While I don't have access to specific data on car brand preferences in Boulder, Colorado, it is safe to say that Honda cars are generally well-liked in many parts of the United States, including Colorado.
Honda has a reputation for producing cars that are suitable for a wide range of drivers, from college students to families to outdoor enthusiasts. Additionally, Honda has been recognized for its commitment to sustainability, which may be appealing to environmentally-conscious residents of Boulder. One of the most popular according to a local sales man at Fisher Auto is the Honda CRV.
Ultimately, the popularity of Honda cars in Boulder will depend on a variety of factors such as individual preferences, availability of dealerships, and pricing. Fisher is the local Honda (and Acura) dealer in the city of Boulder. I've worked with Craig Fisher and his family and staff for over 30 years and have always been thrilled with their service.
One of the very popular late model Hondas is the Ridgeline Truck.
3 Reasons a 2023 Honda Ridgeline Is Worth Buying
The 2023 Honda Ridgeline is comfortable
There are many excellent options if you’re searching for a new midsize pickup truck. One of them is the latest version of the Honda Ridgeline. Although basically nothing has changed since the 2022 model year, the Ridgeline remains one of the best models in its class. Despite its high starting price, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is one of the best choices if you’re searching for a drivable, luxurious, everyday pickup. There are three reasons a 2023 Honda Ridgeline is worth buying.
The 2023 Honda Ridgeline is comfortable
Like its predecessor, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is exceptionally comfortable. According to Car and Driver, the ride is comfortable, and the cabin is spacious. Plenty of room inside the cabin is something not often found with pickup trucks of any size. That’s why it makes the Ridgeline such an outstanding choice. Moreover, materials throughout the cabin are high-quality, with very few cheap plastics compared to rivals. In addition, rear passengers have access to more space than any other midsize truck.
Versatile cargo bed and tailgate
Unfortunately, the lack of cargo bed length provides some of that interior space. It’s only 5.3 feet long and provides 34 cubic feet of storage space. However, C/D says that’s in line with competitors’ short beds, so it isn’t ordinarily tiny. The high-quality ride makes up for whatever the Ridgeline lacks. Many experts say it has a smooth ride that doesn’t feel like a truck. Furthermore, it’s one of many reasons the Honda pickup is an excellent daily driver.
Next, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline is worth buying because of its two-way tailgate and lockable in-bed trunk. Although the cargo bed itself isn’t massive, its under-bed storage compartment is relatively large. According to C/D, the lockable in-bed trunk is weather-tight and provides 7.3 cubic feet of extra storage capacity.
In addition, the two-way tailgate opens down or sideways. Tailgates like this are more common on full-size trucks, but many midsize or compact trucks have not adopted the technology. Honda is one of the only pickups in its class with a versatile cargo bed and tailgate like these.
Plenty of standard features and technology
Finally, the 2023 Honda Ridgeline has plenty of standard features and technology. First, starting with the engine, it’s a 3.5-liter V6 making 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. While unfortunate that there is only one engine, we love that it’s a powerful, serviceable pickup engine option. Next, even the Sport base model has plenty of features and technology. We’re not just talking about the 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, or truck bed lights.
Every Ridgeline has automatic tri-zone climate control, keyless entry/ignition, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a Class III trailer hitch with a seven-pin connector, and the Honda Sensing safety suite. Further, the suite features include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision mitigation. Of course, the RTL and RTL-E trims add even more to the lineup for a few thousand dollars more. For example, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel, heated seats, blind-spot monitoring, wireless smartphone charging, and more.
Well, if you got this far in my Ridgeline commercial... you can tell I'm a fan. I've owned and driven three iterations of this truck since 2010, and just picked up a 2023 this year.
