You may’ve noticed an advertisement campaign by Vehicle touting the toughness of its steel cargo bed in comparison with Ford’utes aluminum cargo maintain. The Chevy arrived on the scene battered and bruised, but Ford’s aluminum-bodied F-150 sustained multiple?lacerations. GM, in its comparison, proclaimed?by itself the winner.
Then late Friday, a plucky younger called Honda (you may know the company for its motorized bicycles as well as electrical generators), put massive shade on the Detroit rivalry using the same check.
Honda’s engineers (not the PR folks, though Honda PR?distributed?the video) carried out roughly the same rock-drop check as the?Chevrolet advertising campaign. The result? Just some scratches in the Ridgeline’s composite bed. Not a dent. Not a break. And the in-bed storage door nevertheless opened and closed as created.
Well done, Honda. Right now all we need is a real truck for your trick bed.
