2018 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2018 Toyota Tacoma Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Honda Ridgeline than 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.

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

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). The Honda Ridgeline is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Tacoma. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Ridgeline is much wider than the Toyota Tacoma, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Ridgeline takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Tacoma.

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

Handling
The Honda Ridgeline has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Tacoma, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of 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 Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma.

Utility
