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 RAM 1500 than in the Honda Ridgeline. The RAM 1500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

Convenience
With the RAM 1500 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Ridgeline, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 RAM 1500, when considering MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much slimmer than the RAM 1500, 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 RAM 1500.

Handling
The Honda Ridgeline has a significantly smaller turning radius than the RAM 1500, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Ridgeline is clearly outclassed by the RAM 1500.

Powertrain
The Honda Ridgeline offers much less torque than the RAM 1500, 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 RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Honda Ridgeline.
