The Destination Charge for the RAM 3500 is much higher than that of the Honda Ridgeline.

Due to its much higher torque, the RAM 3500 does a much better job of transmitting the horsepower of the engine to the wheels than the Honda Ridgeline.

The RAM 3500 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Honda Ridgeline, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
