2015 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2014 Honda Ridgeline Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Tacoma and the Honda Ridgeline.

Convenience
The Honda Ridgeline requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Toyota Tacoma, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
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). Clearly, the Toyota Tacoma is a better financial choice over the Honda Ridgeline, when considering MSRP. 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.

Dimensions
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.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Toyota Tacoma transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Ridgeline.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Toyota Tacoma is clearly the choice over the Honda Ridgeline for pulling heavy loads. The Toyota Tacoma has a little less horsepower than the Honda Ridgeline.

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

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