Comparing the Capabilities, Performance and Features of the Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline 

With the 2020 Honda Ridgeline, you’ll be able to tow up to 5,000 lbs. depending on your vehicle’s configuration. But if you’re looking for the most capable option, the 2020 Ford Ranger delivers an impressive 7,500-lb. tow rating, plus a best-in-class payload capacity of 1,860 lbs.

The Ridgeline uses a powerful 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, but the Ranger proves turbo is the way to go with its 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated for 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Ranger also gets a class-exclusive 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, which optimizes gear progressions and delivers smooth, quick-shifting performance.

We’re amazed by the Ford Ranger’s capabilities, not to mention its impressive breadth of standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ technologies. Both trucks offer standard forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist, but only the Ranger completes the package with Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Auto High-Beam Headlamps.
