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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Colorado as you will with the Honda Ridgeline, 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). 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Colorado transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Ridgeline.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a larger turning radius than the Honda Ridgeline, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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. You'll be able to haul more material in the Chevrolet Colorado than the Honda Ridgeline, due to its significantly greater cargo capacity.

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