    Lol. Never understood why the Ridgeline was either front wheel drive or for more money could be AWD. Who makes a "truck" front wheel drive? Also, the placement of the spare tire is not easily accessible by any means, nor is it user friendly.

    I used to think anything with 4 doors wasn't sporty enough for me to own. Now I need 4 doors and a open bed and frankly I don't care if it's a truck or not. Front wheel drive though? Hey, maybe that would come in handy when my Sport Trac's rear wheels are spinning. But that's what AWD is for.

    All Ridgelines are 4WD. There are no 2WD Ridgelines.

    Volkswagen has made a FWD pickup for years.

    There was actually Chevy S-10's back in the 80's that were factory fwd, very rare.

    It was either limited production or a non-U.S. model but I know two people that owned one over the years. It had the 2.0 diesel, 4speed and was fwd with the 7' long flatbed from the factory. It could've been an import from south America because my buddy did bring it with him from Mexico back in 1988 when he moved to Oregon. :driving:

    The only "Production" FWD S-10's that I know of were electric. They have the EV1 power train in them. I have a friend with one.



    You may be thinking of the Kelpie Kargo which was a Dakota with Caravan power train. The Idea was a low loading floor for local deliveries. Not sure how long they lasted, Only seen one and it may have been a prototype.



    The Ridgeline is AWD until 25MPH, then the rear diffy disconnects.



    The Subaru Brat, VW Pickup, and Dodge Rampage were all car based FWD, although the Subie was usually 4WD. The VW's are expensive these days. Haven't seen a Rampage in 20 yrs.



    what I know..
