Default How does the Honda Ridgeline perform off road?

I know this is kind of comparing apples to oranges but I am in a toss up between a Toyota Tundra and a Honda Ridgeline. Toyota has had a long history of off-road performance but the Ridgeline is a good looking vehicle. I want to take my next vehicle off-roading so it needs to be able to handle some upgrades as well as some tough trails.

The Ridgeline is a very good vehicle, but the Tundra is a real truck. Tundras are overpriced, so shop the Nissan Titan before you overspend. The brake vibration issue they has in 04-05 has been fixed.

Most pickups perform the same way offroad. There are hardly any differences so you could buy any pickup you want for offroading because they all have the same power and offroad technology.

Toyota Tundra is a real performer off-road. The Honda Ridgeline doesn't perform as well off-road as the Toyota Tundra.

NISSAN TITAN PERFORMED MUCH BETTER IN OFFROAD TEST BUT THE NEW TUNDRA IS KING OF ALL TRUCKS, IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE JUST GO HEAD AND TEST DRIVE IT...

The Ridgeline should not even be considered a truck. To Honda, off-road means it has stiff suspension, that is it. If you get stuck in mud or anything, good luck. I drove a Tundra in an off-road course and it rocked it, it was amazing. The Ridgeline seriously is horrible all the way around, they are not selling too well either.

The Toyota Tundra would be the better choice for off road since it has a true frame and is not a unibody like the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline appeals to people who need the utility of a pickup and the on the road features of a car. The Ridgeline is a good vehicle and the link below shows that it does off some off road ability.
