Cabs & Beds - 2019 Honda Ridgeline in/near Centennial CO

The cab and bed department are areas where Honda really comes out on top in the 2019 Honda Ridgeline vs 2019 Nissan Frontier comparison. But to be fair, no truck in the class really compares well to the Ridgeline in that regard. The reason for this is that Honda only offers a crew cab, which just happens to be the most spacious cab in the class! In addition, Honda has paired this cab with the longest bed in the class! The bed also has load floor that is flat, which allows for stacking 4-by-8 plywood, and this is a feature that no other truck in the segment gives you. The Ridgeline also features a two-way tailgate as well as a lockable trunk in the bed that actually serves as a cooler and stereo for you tailgate parties!
