2016 Honda Ridgeline vs Toyota Tacoma: Which Truck Is Right For You?

By  | 

The Toyota Tacoma is superb for anyone who has to stick with a budget but then so is the 2016 Honda Ridgeline. So which out of these two would you choose?

Both of the trucks fall into the mid-size segment and for 2016 the Tacoma has been given a totally new look.

The Toyota Tacoma has the 2.7 litre four cylinder engine along with the V6 3.5 litre. It offers up around 19mpg when travelling in the city and around 24mpg on the highway. It is able to tow a maximum of 6,800 pounds with ease.

The engine in the Honda Ridgeline is the V6 VTEC 3.5 and this offers about 27mpg when travelling out on the highway. The Ridgeline comes with an innovative design for the bed of the truck and it tows the same as the Tacoma.

The Toyota Tacoma comes in the four-wheel drive and it has on-demand four-wheel drive and this comes with automatic limited slip differential. The Honda Ridgeline isn’t a true off the road vehicle but it offers up torque vectoring all-wheel drive. It also comes with the Intelligent management system.

The Toyota Tacoma may come out ahead in the eyes of many people, however the Honda Ridgeline isn’t too far behind, more so if you want something for going off the road.
