Santa Maria shoppers searching for additional options while buying for their next truck will like the Ridgeline lineup's four various configurations, which include the Sport, RTL, RTL-E, and Black Edition. Those interested in the Ford Ranger will only have three trim levels to select from. Another benefit of the Ridgeline is that it comes standard with five-passenger seating in all trims, whereas the Ranger offers four or five-passenger seating depending on which trim you choose.
Drivers also seek a sturdy and durable vehicle with a low curb weight and a high Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). The curb weight of your car is how much it weighs empty, but the GVWR is the maximum weight it can carry with people and goods. When moving heavy cargo or making tight maneuvers, you'll have more control with more weight on your vehicle. The Honda Ridgeline's curb weight and GVWR are 4436 lbs. and 6019 lbs., respectively. The 2021 Ford Ranger, on the other hand, has a curb weight and GVWR value of 4145 and 6050 pounds, respectively.
