2019 Honda Ridgeline vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma

Serving Highland, IN

Pickup trucks are incredibly versatile. Not only is a pickup great for hauling loads and tackling off-road trails, but it can also be used as your primary family vehicle. While the segment has some solid models to choose from, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline continues to stand apart from the competition. You’ll love the Ridgeline’s excellent passenger comfort and everyday practicality. Let’s see how it stacks up against the 2019 Toyota Tacoma.

Performance

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline promises to deliver a powerful performance. Under the hood rests a powerful 3.5-liter, V6 engine. Honda rates it to produce a healthy 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Although the 2019 Toyota Tacoma can be equipped with a V6 engine, buyers have to pay extra. Its standard four-cylinder engine produces a less satisfying 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. You can also take advantage of the Ridgeline’s sportier handling. Unibody construction and a four-wheel independent suspension help the Ridgeline to inspire drivers with complete confidence. Expect the Toyota Tacoma to drive more like a traditional truck on the street.

Interior

If you’re in the market for an all-purpose family vehicle, look no further than the 2019 Honda Ridgeline. It’ll give everyone plenty of space to stretch out. The Tacoma Double Cab’s interior isn’t as roomy. When riding in the Ridgeline’s backseat, passengers will enjoy an extra 4.1 inches of legroom. A higher number of creature comforts are also available for the new Ridgeline. A tri-zone climate control system and ventilated front seats enable the Ridgeline to offer an especially relaxing ride. Furthermore, only the Ridgeline provides power-adjustable seats.

Features

Both of these trucks come standard with essential features like a backup camera and Bluetooth technology. However, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma fails to offer certain upgrades. Designed to promote easier smartphone integration, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give the 2019 Honda Ridgeline a definite advantage. You will also love the Ridgeline’s in-bed trunk, which is not currently available on any other pickup on the market.

Although the Toyota Tacoma is a strong contender, it loses this head-to-head battle. To experience how the 2019 Honda Ridgeline compares to the 2019 Toyota Tacoma, stop by Bosak Honda Highland for a test drive.
