Ford Ranger vs Honda Ridgeline Comparison

  • While the Ranger uses a turbocharged four-cylinder that offers less horsepower than the V-6 in the Ridgeline, the Ford midsized truck has more torque, which leads to a higher payload capacity. It's a considerable advantage as well, with the Ford Ranger hauling up to 2,1,28 pounds, compared to only 1,465 pounds for the Ridgeline.
  • The combination of the smaller engine and the 10-speed automatic in the Ford Ranger makes it slightly more efficient than the Ridgeline. Though fuel economy is rarely a concern for trucks, these midsized setups are used for more everyday errands than their full-sized counterparts, so saving every little bit on gas can be incredibly helpful around the Ogden and Syracuse areas.
  • If you're shopping for a truck that can tackle rough, rocky terrains around the desert or up in the mountains, the Ford Ranger is the best pick. With its new Tremor package, you get all sorts of off-roading improvements that the Honda Ridgeline can't match.

Ford Ranger vs Chevy Colorado Comparison

  • While the Chevy Colorado offers more engine options, you'll have to spend considerably more to match or exceed the capabilities of the Ford Ranger. Even with the more powerful engine stacked up against the starting four-cylinder of the Colorado, the Ranger earns better fuel economy, making it easier on your fuel budget for a truck you use on an everyday basis around the Layton area and beyond.
  • The Ford Ranger proves to be more affordable in both its starting package and at its higher trim when compared to the Chevy Colorado. When finding the perfect truck, you'll want to stick with your budget, and with the Ranger, you'll have more wiggle room to add additional options and features, including with some of the high-end Ford tech you may want to include with your midsized pickup.
  • Though the Colorado features some off-roading setups, it's the Ford Ranger that really excels for crawling, 4x4 capabilities and taking off on all kinds of excursions beyond the beaten path. When enjoying the gorgeous terrains beyond the Ogden area, the Ford Ranger with its optional Tremor Package is the way to go.
