Never saw an Accord with a ladder chassis like that before... It's a semi-unit chassis, with the ladder frame welded to the outer box, and only engine and drivetrain mounting points shared with an Accord, and then only superficially.

Wonder where some people get their information?

As for me, not really a fan of most modern pickups for looks, but love them for their ability. I love the classics, like a late '60s Chevy:




I also love old Datsun Bulletsides:

Saying the ridgeline is an accord is like saying an Apple is really a lizard. Yeah makes no sense .

Is this thread about looks or gas mileage?

Best would be the Old Fords and I've always been a GM guy

Worst ever would be the third world looking older Japanese trucks...

I never said they were the same exact chassis. I said "based on." If you follow the lineage, it ends up at the Accord, though admittedly, just barely. The Ridgeline is much more closely related to an Accord than say a Chevy Colorado is related to an Impala. But that's all semantics anyhow. This thread is about what people think are the best-looking and worst-looking pickups out there and whether you call it a pickup or a boat or whatever, the Ridgeline is still butt-ugly in my book.

The 1967-1972 and 1973-1979 Ford f-series pickups are the best looking.
