Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Ridgeline offers a bit more room for passengers in the extended cab than the RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

Convenience
With the RAM 1500 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Ridgeline, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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
The Honda Ridgeline is a little narrower than the RAM 1500, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 similar turning radius to the RAM 1500, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
The Honda Ridgeline has less seating than the RAM 1500, making the RAM 1500 the better choice if you often have passengers. The RAM 1500 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Honda Ridgeline.

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