Many drivers find it hard to decide when they’re searching for that next great pickup upgrade around Carlsbad. For those with an eye toward engineering prowess, sleek design, and innovative technology, the 2020 RAM 1500 is at the top of the list. Fewer may be familiar with the new Honda Ridgeline, however. Compare the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline to see which selection has the moxie you expect from your pickup.

2020 Ridgeline vs. RAM 1500: Performance

It’s no secret that the 2020 RAM 1500 continues a long tradition of superior power and capability. Whether it’s the exceptional standard power of its Pentastar engine or the new RAM 1500 towing capacity, Vista drivers can rely on this pickup for all their work and adventures, 24/7. That being said, we don’t want to ignore the impressive strides Honda Ridgeline has made over the years to become a contender. Take a look at the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline performance comparison below:

2020 Honda Ridgeline 

  • Standard Engine: 3.6L V6
  • Base Engine Output: 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 5,000 pounds
  • EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 19/26 city/highway mpg

2020 RAM 1500 

  • Standard Engine: 3.5L Pentastar V6
  • Base Engine Output: 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 12,750 pounds
  • EPA-Rated Fuel Economy: 20/25 city/highway mpg

While 2020 RAM outperforms the 2020 Honda Ridgeline at every turn, the match-up is relatively close, apart from a vast divide in towing capacity and horsepower. If you want to tow more than a small trailer or boat, you’ll want the new RAM 1500 on your side. Also available is the 395-hp 5.7L HEMI® V8 with 410 lb-ft of torque for serious power, and the new 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine that combines 480 pound-feet of torque and a towing capacity of 12,560 pounds!

2020 Ridgeline vs. RAM 1500: Interior Tech

The new RAM 1500 offers an available Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation that features an advanced, Largest-in-Class 12-inch touchscreen. However, that’s only part of the reason the 2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline comparison doesn’t stack up to be a real competition. The 40/20/40 bench split allows for more efficient use of space in the RAM 1500 as opposed to the 60/40 split the Honda Ridgeline offers, and the standard Power-Heated Mirrors with Manual Fold-Away is only available as an upgrade on the Ridgeline. Both models do offer the following benefits as standard:

  • 12-Volt Auxiliary Power Outlet
  • Front and Rear Climate-Control Outlets
  • Overhead Console
  • Remote USB Port
  • Integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth®
  • And more!
