Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Maverick offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Honda Ridgeline. The Ford Maverick will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline.

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). Clearly, the Ford Maverick is a better financial choice over the Honda Ridgeline, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Maverick is much higher than that of the Honda Ridgeline.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Maverick 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 Ford Maverick, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Ridgeline.

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

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

Powertrain
The Ford Maverick offers much less torque than the Honda Ridgeline, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford Maverick as you will the Honda Ridgeline. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of lumber or gardening supplies into the bed of the Ford Maverick as you will with the Honda Ridgeline.

Warranty
The Ford Maverick comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Ridgeline.
