Pickup trucks have consistently been the top selling vehicles in the United States for a long time. They have been able to stay so popular over the years because no other vehicle category can replicate the utility and functionality of a pickup. It can be hard to narrow down your options when shopping for a new pickup, but the 2020 Ford Ranger and 2020 Honda Ridgeline should be at the top of the list. Ford built its massive reputation with pickups, so it is no surprise that the new Ranger is able to outclass the Ridgeline in a few key feature categories.

Cost to Own

The vast majority of people shopping for a new vehicle consider cost to be a huge factor in their selection process. Assuming the two pickups need the same amount of maintenance over their lifetime, it will cost a lot less money to own the 2020 Ford Ranger instead of the 2020 Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline has a manufacturer's suggested retail price that is much higher compared to the Ford Ranger's. In addition to the purchase price, you will also save money on fuel costs with the Ford Ranger. Its combined gas mileage is 23 miles per gallon while the 2020 Ridgeline only gets 22 combined miles per gallon.


Easily hauling a large amount of goods is a key benefit to owning a pickup truck. While the 2020 Ranger and Honda Ridgeline provide the same horsepower and maximum trailer weight, the process of moving heavy items will still be a lot easier in the new pickup from Ford. This is all due to engine torque. The 2020 Ridgeline provides only 262 lbs-ft of torque. You will get 310 lbs-ft of torque in the new Ford Ranger. This will allow the 2020 Ranger to perform better when under heavy load.


Riding in the 2020 Ford Ranger as a driver or passenger will be a much more comfortable experience than the one offered by the 2020 Honda Ridgeline. The front passengers get to enjoy an extra inch of headroom and two extra inches of legroom in the Ranger. These same passengers will also get to enjoy lumbar supported seats in Ford's excellent new pickup. These trucks provide nearly identical experiences for the rear passengers. The Ford also comes with the option to add the FordPass Connect feature to enhance your overall vehicle experience. It offers the ability to lock/unlock your car from your phone, schedule remote starts, locate your car if you ever forget where you parked, WiFi hotspot for up to ten devices, and many more awesome features.

The only way to truly understand the premium experience offered in 2020 Ford Ranger is by seeing it in action. Once you get behind the wheel of the new Ranger during a test drive, you will know why Ford pickups just cannot be beat.
