Finding the right truck can be difficult with so many models on the market. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to look for to determine which truck is better than the other, and it largely depends on what your needs are. If you need to use the truck to transport large loads, then looking at power and various capacities is more important. If you are looking for a truck to drive every day that has all of the latest amenities and features, then looking at things like the technology and convenience specs would be more beneficial for you. We have created this comparison of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2017 Toyota Tacoma to help you see how to compare two similar vehicles.
While on the outside the Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma do look very similar, they have many differences that help to distinguish them. We have used the base models to compare, the Ridgeline RT FWD Crew Cab and the Tacoma SR 4x2 Access Cab. The Ridgeline was redesigned for the 2017 model year and features an updated design with an aggressive stance and aerodynamic flow. LED head- and taillights help the Ridgeline see and be seen at all times.
The Honda Ridgeline has a redesigned truck bed unlike any other truck in its class. The wheel well housings were minimized to help maximize the space in the bed, and the In-Bed Trunk® adds another dimension of storage. The trunk includes a drain pipe so you can use it like a cooler or to store wet gear without worrying about the water damaging the trunk. The Ridgeline also has a two-way tailgate so that you can open it to the side if you need to, as well as an outlet in the wall of the truck bed and an industry-first Truck Bed Audio System to allow music to be played from the bed of the truck.
