2014 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2014 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Tacoma, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 its lower torque engine, the Honda Ridgeline doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Toyota Tacoma.

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. The Honda Ridgeline has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Tacoma.

Utility
The Honda Ridgeline offers a little more seating capacity than the Toyota Tacoma, making it a better choice for those who often have a crew with them.

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