2013 Cadillac Escalade EXT vs. 2014 Honda Ridgeline Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Cadillac Escalade EXT than the Honda Ridgeline. The Cadillac Escalade EXT offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

Convenience
The Cadillac Escalade EXT requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Ridgeline, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Cadillac Escalade EXT will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Ridgeline, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Cadillac Escalade EXT is much higher than that of the Honda Ridgeline.

Dimensions
The Cadillac Escalade EXT is a little wider than the Honda Ridgeline, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Cadillac Escalade EXT, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Ridgeline.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac Escalade EXT does a much better job of transmitting the horsepower of the engine to the wheels than the Honda Ridgeline.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade EXT has a similar turning radius to the Honda Ridgeline, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Cadillac Escalade EXT is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac Escalade EXT greatly outmuscles the Honda Ridgeline.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Cadillac Escalade EXT as you will the Honda Ridgeline.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac Escalade EXT over that of the Honda Ridgeline.
