The new 2020 RAM 1500 has earned plenty of praise for the power, class, and level of utility offered in every model. However, our dealers at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM understand that it isn’t the only pickup truck on the market, and one of its main competitors is the 2020 Honda Ridgeline.
2020 RAM 1500 vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline
A defining factor in any pickup truck is its engine power. While both the 2020 Honda Ridgeline and the 2020 RAM 1500 are well-powered in their own right, it is the RAM 1500 that delivers the most in this department. To be fair, the starting engine of the Honda Ridgeline is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that uses a nine-speed automatic transmission and generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. That said, it is the only powertrain option available in the Honda Ridgeline, which is a steep disappointment for many potential drivers.
The 2020 RAM 1500, on the other hand, spares no expense in dishing out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque from its starting 3.6-liter V6 engine that uses a mild-hybrid powertrain. Plus, it isn’t the only powertrain option in the RAM 1500, as drivers can find anything from a V8 unit to a turbodiesel V6 engine scattered across the available trim options.
RAM vs. Honda Truck Bed Comparisons
And when it comes to truck bed length, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline only offers one single configuration. The bed of the Honda Ridgeline measures in at 60 inches long and 50 inches wide, with no other available configuration options. The 2020 RAM 1500 offers two truck bed options that measure in at five-foot-seven-inches and six-foot-four-inches, respectively.
The 2020 RAM 1500 is surely the go-to truck for pickup lovers, and you can experience all of its power and utility first-hand at our RAM dealership near Freehold, NJ. At Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we’re known throughout for being the very best at what we do, and we want our pickup trucks to reflect that.
