So why not start now and take a look at how the all- Honda Ridgeline mid-size pickup truck compares to one of its main competitors, the new Toyota Tacoma.

Handling and Ride

The all- Honda Ridgeline has a unibody construction, as opposed to the body-on-frame assembly of the new Toyota Tacoma. The Ridgeline's body structure helps to increase handling, comfort, ride quality, and safety during a collision. Due to its unibody design, the new Ridgeline's ride is smoother, more closely resembling that of a sedan. You might not expect such a smooth ride from a mid-size truck equipped with a vigorous V6 engine! When you compare the Ridgeline and Tacoma by test-driving them, you will undoubtedly notice that the Honda provides more precise handling, easily taking on curves and corners. If great handling is a top priority for the mid-side pickup you want, come to Honda of New Rochelle to test drive the all-new Honda Ridgeline. Once you experience this fun ride, you won't want to head back to your home without it!

Passenger Comfort

One of the key benefits of the new Ridgeline's unibody construction is that it gives drivers a superior ride quality, compared to the Toyota Tacoma's body-on-frame structure, as we mentioned. That means Ridgeline passengers experience greater comfort on the road. But that's not the only reason riding in a Ridgeline is more comfortable; Just take a look at the interiors of both the Ridgeline and the Tacoma, and you will discover that the Honda's cabin looks more comfortable and appealing. While the Tacoma's interior offers the same stylish design you might find in any Toyota, when it comes to ride quality, the Tacoma gives passengers a rougher ride inside its more sparsely-appointed cabin. In contrast, the new Ridgeline took many of its modern design cues from the Honda Pilot, the automaker's family-friendly SUV. In many ways, the new Ridgeline's ride compares very nicely with the Pilot's. So, once again, the Ridgeline comes out on top!

Power and Performance

Every 2017 Ridgeline is powered by Honda's reliable and powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine, delivering a remarkable 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. You can choose to have your Ridgeline outfitted with the 2-wheel-drive or an innovative all-wheel drive system (AWD). No matter which you select, you will discover that your new Honda pickup truck offers exciting performance and unbending adeptness. The Toyota Tacoma base model comes with a standard 2.7-liter inline-4 engine, which just doesn't measure up to the Honda V6 when it comes to performance, power, or candidly, fuel efficiency. The Toyota's 2.7-liter engine in the Tacoma generates just 159 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. That means that the standard Ridgeline gives you a 120 horsepower advantage over the Tacoma's base trim level! The Tacoma also offers an optional 3.5-liter V6, but you will soon find out that it still offers less horsepower, compared to the powerful new Ridgeline. Opting for the Tacoma also means your fuel economy won't measure up to the Ridgeline's mighty V6 engine. If you are looking for a mid-size pickup truck that offers excellent fuel economy paired with V6 muscle, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is the clear choice!

Fuel Efficiency

Fuel economy might not be the primary reason that drivers shop for a mid-size pickup truck, buy you are looking for versatility. And that means fuel economy is definitely something to think about. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline delivers an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon on the highway, with the 2WD model providing an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined. That means you get best-in-class fuel economy when you buy the 2017 Honda Ridgeline! When equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD) the Ridgeline attains an EPA-estimated 18 city mpg, 25 highway mpg, and 21 combined mpg. The Tacoma's standard 4-cylinder, 2WD model generates an EPA-estimated 23 highway and 21 combined mpg rating. The Tacoma 4x4 supplied with its standard inline 4-cylinder engine produces 21 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg city/highway, combined. So you can anticipate getting, at minimum, one or two miles per gallon better when driving the 2017 Ridgeline than you do when behind the wheel of an equivalent Tacoma. However, because fuel economy is based on the 2017 Ridgeline's standard V6 engine, comparing it to the the Tacoma's less-powerful standard inline-4 may not constitute an "equivalent" vehicle. Having said that, the much more potent Honda V6 engine still delivers better fuel efficiency, compared to the Toyota Tacoma furnished with its standard 4-cylinder engine.

Safety Features and Technology

Since the Honda Ridgeline is strongly based on the Honda Pilot, which is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, you will discover that the new Ridgeline shares many of the Pilot's important safety technologies. The all-new Ridgeline offers several standard safety features, including Honda's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, giving drivers a better view of vehicles, people, or stationary objects behind them. With three different angles including normal, top-down, and wide, drivers can now reverse the vehicle with more confidence and safety. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup can also be equipped with the Honda Sensing system. This safety technology includes blind spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, and lane-departure prevention. If you opt for the new Toyota Tacoma, you will be left with a single-view backup camera, and the truck doesn't offer many of Toyota's advanced safety technologies.
