Interior Comfort s

Honda Ridgeline: A roomy and quiet cabin lets you forget you're in a hard-working pickup truck.  Cabin is among the largest of any pickup available.  Rear passengers will enjoy the amount of room available for them.  It provides a driver-friendly ride with loads of technology and high-quality materials lining the console.   Climate control features provide a comfortable temperature, while the seats are well-shaped and provide the perfect amount of padding for a long ride.  Triple-sealed doors keep out the noises of the road.

Nissan Titan:Tighter cabin feels more confined at times, especially for larger passengers in the rear seat.  Handles well on open road but harder to handle on city streets and plays large and heavy in parking lots.  Transmission can get temperamental during city driving.  You will feel the jostle of rocky roads more frequently.  Interior materials feel dated and cheap, but it is put together well.

Ford Ranger: Front seats are well-padded, which helps when driving over rough surfaces, because you will likely feel the road.  Climate control keeps cabin comfortable, but small buttons makes manipulation difficult while driving.  Rear passengers will have a difficult time getting in and out of the Ranger uncomfortable. Front seat gets plenty of room.
