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 XD than in the Honda Ridgeline. The Nissan Titan XD 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 Honda Ridgeline is a better financial choice over the Nissan Titan XD, 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 Honda Ridgeline carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Titan XD.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much slimmer than the Nissan Titan XD, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 XD.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Titan XD 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 XD.

Powertrain
The Honda Ridgeline offers much less torque than the Nissan Titan XD, 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 Honda Ridgeline as you will the Nissan Titan XD.

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