If you’re on the hunt for a capable, versatile new truck, it might be tempting to believe the hype and assume the 2017 RAM 1500 can’t give you what the 2018 Honda Ridgeline does. In truth, however, the RAM 1500 offers:

  • Greater Towing Capability
  • More Engine Options
  • Greater Fuel Efficiency
  • A Lower Base Price
  • A More Customizable Exterior Design

To demonstrate these points, we created a brief comparison of the RAM 1500 and the new Honda Ridgeline. In one category after another, the RAM proved it offered more of what Longview drivers wanted and did it for less.
