2016 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Ridgeline than in the Toyota Tacoma. The Toyota Tacoma offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Honda Ridgeline, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Tacoma as you will with the Honda Ridgeline, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Tacoma will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Ridgeline. The destination charge is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Tacoma will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Ridgeline.

Since the Toyota Tacoma is much slimmer than the Honda Ridgeline, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Tacoma takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Ridgeline.

With similar torque, the engines of the Toyota Tacoma and the Honda Ridgeline are able to equally transmit their respective horsepower to the wheels.

The Toyota Tacoma has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Ridgeline, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Toyota Tacoma is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Toyota Tacoma and the Honda Ridgeline.

The Toyota Tacoma has less seating than the Honda Ridgeline, making the Honda Ridgeline the better choice if you often have passengers.

The Toyota Tacoma comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Ridgeline.
