2017 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2017 RAM 3500 Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the RAM 3500 than in the Honda Ridgeline. The RAM 3500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the RAM 3500.

The Honda Ridgeline has a significantly smaller turning radius than the RAM 3500, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
