Both the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and the 2017 Toyota Tacoma are exciting midsize pickups that could be perfect for your needs. If you’re trying to decide between these two models, then you should see how they stack up side by side. That’s why we’ve compared these two vehicles in the areas of power, performance, and standard features. Read on to find out the clear winner!

Powertrain and Performance

If you’re shopping for a pickup, then you probably want more power and more capability, as well as solid fuel economy. Take a look at these specs:

  • Ridgeline: The Ridgeline gets a 3.5L V6 that makes 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The Ridgeline is rated by the EPA at up to 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and a standard six-speed automatic transmission*. The all-wheel drive model of the Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
  • Tacoma: The Tacoma can’t match up to that. It only gets a 2.7L four-cylinder engine that makes 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. In addition, the Tacoma is only rated at up to 19 mpg city/23 mpg highway with a six-speed automatic transmission*. The four-cylinder, front-wheel drive Tacoma can only pull up to 3,500 pounds.

It’s easy to see that the Ridgeline, with its standard V6 engine, is both more efficient and more capable than the Toyota Tacoma.

Features and Options

The Ridgeline is easily better equipped both inside and out when compared to the Toyota Tacoma. The Ridgeline provides five seats standard, while the Tacoma only includes four seats with Access Cab models. Plus, the Honda Ridgeline is equipped with important features such as cruise control, 7-speaker audio system, alloy wheels, three power outlets, a driver information center, a rear window defogger, and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, while the Toyota gets fewer speakers, steel wheels, less power outlets, and disc brakes in back, and none of those other features standard.
