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 Jeep Gladiator than in the Honda Ridgeline. The Jeep Gladiator 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 Honda Ridgeline as you will with the Jeep Gladiator, 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 Honda Ridgeline will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Gladiator. 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 Jeep Gladiator.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much wider than the Jeep Gladiator, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Honda Ridgeline is slightly shorter than the Jeep Gladiator, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Honda Ridgeline has a similar turning radius to the Jeep Gladiator, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Gladiator is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda Ridgeline and the Jeep Gladiator.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Honda Ridgeline as you will the Jeep Gladiator. The Honda Ridgeline has a little less cargo capacity than the Jeep Gladiator for hauling material.

Warranty
The Honda Ridgeline comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Gladiator.
