2016 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab may find themselves a little more squished in the Chevrolet Colorado than the Honda Ridgeline. The Chevrolet Colorado will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Colorado 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Colorado will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Ridgeline. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Colorado and the Honda Ridgeline have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Honda Ridgeline, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Colorado, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Ridgeline.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the engines of the Chevrolet Colorado and the Honda Ridgeline are able to equally transmit their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado 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 Chevrolet Colorado is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little more horsepower than the Honda Ridgeline.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Ridgeline.
