2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2019 RAM 1500 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the RAM 1500 than in the Honda Ridgeline. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Ridgeline and the RAM 1500.

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 Honda Ridgeline will have less of an impact on your bank account than the RAM 1500. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Ridgeline carries a much lower Destination Charge than the RAM 1500.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much slimmer than the RAM 1500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Honda Ridgeline, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM 1500.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the engines of the Honda Ridgeline and the RAM 1500 are able to equally transmit their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Ridgeline has a smaller turning radius than the RAM 1500, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 1500 is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Ridgeline is clearly outclassed by the RAM 1500.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Honda Ridgeline as you will the RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Honda Ridgeline.

Warranty
The Honda Ridgeline comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the RAM 1500.
