    1. I wonder if the computer is correct on the Ridgeline as that is just as good as the Diesel Canyon that took longer to get up the hill but with 800 more pounds but it took a lot longer. How did a gas do as well as the diesel. And you had to waste gas getting up to speed a couple of times

      1. That is a great question. The trip computers are not very accurate at time. However, there is another variable between the Canyon Duramax Ike Gauntlet and Honda Ridgeline. The trailers and trailer weights are different. Unfortunately, this is not an apples-to-apples comparison. The Canyon was hauling a bigger trailer with 5,600 lbs. The Ridgeline was at 4,800 lbs.


        1. The diesel was 800 heavier but it took longer to get up the hill. Reducing the time saves fuel as well. Even though the diesel was full throttle it’s slower speed saved it fuel. Also adds less wind resistance by travelling slower. So the Ridgeline was lighter but was at a disadvantage because it did it in less time. The very basic formula for this is Energy is equal to Work/Time. Less time means the truck had to use more energy regardless of wind resistance. Adding wind resistance at a higher speed amplifies that. So yes the Ridgeline had less weight less Work but it’s time was faster so the energy used might balance itself out between the two trucks. It also had to waste energy accelerating up to speed twice.

          I still say you guys should do an mpg loop. You go up the gauntlet and come down and then refuel the trucks and see what the actual mpg is under the round trip up and down. Computers are likely not accurate under heavy acceleration like that.

    2. Can’t wait for the 2017 Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon Ike Gauntlet test with the new drive train. The new V6 engine, and 8 speed transmission should be an improvement over the 2016.
