These base trim pickups are capable of most common jobs, but only one has the power for heavy-duty work. 

Here is a look under the hood of the 2021 RAM 3500 and the 2021 Honda Ridgeline. 

 
RAM 3500 Tradesman

Engine
: 6.4L HEMI V6
Transmission: 8-speed automatic
Horsepower: 410
Torque: 429 lb-ft

Honda Ridgeline Sport

Engine
: 3.5L i-VTEC V6
Transmission: 9-speed automatic
Horsepower: 280
Torque: 262 lb-ft

The RAM is the clear winner of this comparison.  Thanks to its impressive horsepower, it can pull loads as heavy as 8,260 kg. Moreover, it has a payload capacity of 3,494 kg. Despite this competition-beating muscle, the 3500 has the efficiency of smaller-engine pickup during highway cruising.

The 2021 RAM 3500 Tradesman utilizes Variable Cam Timing (VCT) technology, which provides consistent power regardless of the load. It also has a Multi-Displacement System (MDS), enabling it to lower fuel consumption when at a cruising speed (leading to its impressive efficiency). 

If you are interested in a powerful pickup that can also deliver practicality on the highway, you should consider the 2021 RAM 3500 Tradesman. Contact our Vancouver, BC dealership today to schedule a test drive.
