2020 Ridgeline vs. 2020 Ranger

If you need a hearty pickup truck that balances power with efficiency, the Honda Ridgeline and Ford Ranger both stand out from the pack. They deliver the work truck essentials with impressive towing, durable truck beds, and serious horsepower all within practical compact frames, and their disciplined gas mileage makes them excellent choices for the daily drive. When it’s time to choose, the decision can be tough, so let’s compare them side by side to determine the winner.


While both trucks are capable of serious hauling and towing abilities, handling differs widely between the two. The Ridgeline cruises streets and highways with the smooth ride that drivers expect from Honda, and its compliant suspension shrugs off bumps in the road with ease. Steering is reassuringly responsive, and the pickup feels stable even while taking winding roads. The Ranger, however, feels more rigid than its class rival, and you might feel some turbulence when navigating uneven roads.

Cabin Quality

You’ll notice a stark difference between the two cabins as soon as you open the doors. The 2020 Ridgeline backs up its impressive power with a surprisingly comfortable cab, and its comfortable seating helps you and your passengers relax after a tough workday. The cushioned seats offer plenty of legroom as well as posture support for longer drives, and surfaces are smooth to the touch and easy on the eyes. The style ranges from the understated base trim to the bold Black Edition with two-tone leather seats and recessed red lighting. On the other hand, the 2020 Ranger appears older and underdressed, despite only returning to Ford’s lineup just one year prior. Its cabin is rife with low-end materials, and its SuperCab variation doesn’t offer much space for rearseat passengers.


There’s no reason why a modern truck should skip on onboard tech for entertainment and driver assistance, and the Ridgeline bolsters its interior quality with a variety of features. The 2020 Ridgeline comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that grants easy control over intuitive menus. Every 2020 Ridgeline also has smartphone synchronization through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay®. These features are only available on the Ranger for an additional cost. Honda also equips its truck with tri-zone automatic
climate control for comfort in any weather, while dual-zone climate control in some Ranger trims. Both trucks offer standard safety features like automatic emergency braking, while only the Ridgeline comes standard with adaptive cruise control and road departure mitigation.
