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 Nissan Titan than in the Honda Ridgeline. The Nissan Titan will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline.

Convenience
The Nissan Titan requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Honda Ridgeline, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan Titan. 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 Nissan Titan.

Dimensions
The Honda Ridgeline is a little narrower than the Nissan Titan, 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 Nissan Titan.

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

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

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

Utility
The Honda Ridgeline has less seating than the Nissan Titan, making the Nissan Titan the better choice if you often have passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Ridgeline is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Nissan Titan.
