2020 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Ford Ranger

2020 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Ford Ranger

What mid-size truck is the best at being a mid-size truck? The 2020 Honda Ridgeline and 2020 Ford Ranger are two different ideas of how to be a smaller truck, due to a lot of different design choices and the histories of the companies. It’s no secret that Ford has long been one of the most important truck builders of all time, so how can a Honda truck compare?

The Ridgeline is now in its second generation, after surviving nearly a full fifteen years. It obviously didn’t survive by trying to copy the Ford Ranger. Whether those differences are borne of engine power, outward design, or interior technology, or some combination of each category, the Ridgeline has been able to hold its own, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. Review the chart that follows to learn a little more about how the two small pickups are designed.

Model Comparison Analysis

Since there are four major trim levels of the 2020 Honda Ridgeline and only three major trim levels of the 2020 Ford Ranger, the Ridgeline offers more ways for shoppers to find the trim that fits their life and pickup truck needs. The Ridgeline has a little more horsepower than the Ranger, contrary to what many Ford fans may assume. The differences inside the two vehicles are what really set the two trucks apart. The Honda Ridgeline can deliver a more comfortable, technologically advanced interior than the Ranger. The audio system in the Honda is sure to impress, and the climate control system will immerse drivers and passengers in a new world of comfort.
