2014 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2014 Nissan Frontier Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Honda Ridgeline than the Nissan Frontier. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Ridgeline and the Nissan Frontier.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Ridgeline as you will with the Nissan Frontier, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

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 Honda Ridgeline is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Frontier. 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 Honda Ridgeline and the Nissan Frontier have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much wider than the Nissan Frontier, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Ridgeline takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Frontier.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda Ridgeline doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Nissan Frontier.

Handling
The Honda Ridgeline has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Frontier, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Frontier is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Ridgeline has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Frontier.

Utility
The Honda Ridgeline offers a little more seating capacity than the Nissan Frontier, making it a better choice for those who often have a crew with them.
