There has been a great deal of teasing since the 2017 Honda Ridgeline appeared at the Detroit Auto Show and people wonder if the vehicle offers what is needed for it to beat the Ford Ranger. The Ranger is of course a vehicle that is a great deal more versatile.
The looks of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are not that interesting but perhaps the designers did this intentionally. It is a mid-sized truck but the design of it makes it look a lot like a full sized truck.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline will be offered in all-wheel along with FWD drive and its bland looks give it the appearance of the Honda Pilot some people believe. For looks it is unable to beat the Ford Ranger.
Both the Ford Ranger and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are great trucks but the Ridgeline may offer the upper hand thanks to it having a price tag that is lower and it being able to carry a load weight that is larger.
But which of the two would you rather drive, would it be the 2017 Honda Ridgeline or the Ford Ranger?
