What Is the Smallest Pickup Truck Sold in the US?

The smallest pickup truck sold in the US is the Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline is a mid-size pickup truck that has been on the market since 2005.

It is powered by a 3.5-liter direct injection V6 engine, which produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It has a five-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive system.

The Ridgeline is available in two body styles – a crew cab and an extended cab, both of which have four doors. The extended cab has a slightly smaller rear seat than the crew cab, making it the most compact option in terms of interior space. The extended cab also features two rear jump seats, giving it more seating capacity than the crew cab.

The Ridgeline is available with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive, depending on the trim level and options chosen. It has a relatively small bed size (5 feet) compared to other mid-size pickups, but it does have an innovative “in-bed trunk” that provides additional storage space for items such as tools or camping gear. The Ridgeline also comes equipped with Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which helps to absorb impacts during collisions.

The Ridgeline is not as powerful as some other mid-size pickups on the market, but it does offer good fuel economy with EPA estimated ratings of 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway for 2WD models and 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway for 4WD models (based on 2020 models). It also offers plenty of features such as Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility and HondaLink telematics system, making it an attractive option for those looking for a smaller truck with modern features and amenities.

Conclusion: The Honda Ridgeline is currently the smallest pickup truck sold in the US. While it may not have all of the power of other mid-size pickups on the market, it does offer good fuel economy and plenty of features and amenities that make it an attractive option for those seeking a smaller truck option.
