2020 Honda Ridgeline vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda Ridgeline
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

Every single competitor in the mid-size pickup class offers body-on-frame construction, resulting in better off-road ability and a higher towing capacity than the Ridgeline at the expense of comfort and outright storage.

The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon cousins both impress with their standard infotainment, available turbodiesel engine, and off-road chops, specifically the Colorado ZR2.

The new Ford Ranger makes do with a turbo-4 powertrain but returns impressive towing and payload figures for a reasonable price.

Toyota’s venerable Tacoma is a sales leader in this segment but lacks the little things that set it apart from a more competitive field than ever.

The Nissan Frontier is ancient, but it’s also cheap.
