Advantages of the 2018
As you can see from the table to the right, the two pickup trucks are fairly comparable to one another, but each has its very clear advantages. In the first row, for instance, the Ridgeline kicks things off with an obvious advantage in power, by the way of 19 horsepower. While the leg up is evident, what this doesn’t tell you is that it’s not exactly a massive advantage. An extra 19 HP is certainly a good thing to have, but it’s not a gamechanger.
Utilizing 2.3 litres less fuel per 100 kilometres, on the other hand, certainly is. That’s exactly what the Ridgeline does in comparison to the Frontier, as made evident by row two. That advantage doesn’t get a whole lot better in row three, where the table shows the Frontier guzzles up 1.7 extra l/100km. These two numbers will translate to a lot of savings at the pump in the long run.
2018 Honda Ridgeline
2018 Nissan Frontier
|280 HP||Horsepower||261 HP|
|12.4 l/100km||City Fuel Efficiency||14.7 l/100km|
|9.0 l/100km||Highway Fuel Efficiency||10.7 l/100km|
|5,000 lbs.||Max Towing Capacity||6,500 lbs.|
However, as we mentioned, the Ridgeline isn’t as capable as other trucks. The Frontier can trailer up to 6,500 pounds, which is 1,500 lbs. more than the Ridgeline can tow. If you can overlook this small blunder, then give us a call to get behind the wheel of your very own Ridgeline!
