2016 Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier & Honda Ridgeline: Who Wins?

By  | 

Seems like the the teasing for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has never stopped, even after its debut, and now people have started comparing it with other trucks too. The Ridgeline did go down well but to be fair it has received some criticism too and this is due to fact that is has, well, to be honest looks that are boring.

The vehicle has been compared alongside the Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma, which some people say are tougher vehicles. So how does the Honda Ridgeline match up to these V6 vehicles? Well there are some aspects that set them apart so let’s take a look at them.

The Chevrolet Colorado packs in a lot more horsepower and the Nissan Frontier offers more torque. The Honda Ridgeline has to keep quiet in regards to both of these. In regards to the Chevrolet Colorado it offers a superb towing payload that beats the Ridgeline and other trucks as it comes in at 7,000lbs.

The Honda Ridgeline does beat the others in one aspect and this is that it offers the widest payload loading. This means that it is at least in front of the Toyota Tacoma as this hasn’t gained any points yet.

The Toyota Tacoma does offer up blind spot monitoring but then the Honda Ridgeline does beat it as it comes with other features for safety that put it ahead, such as lane departure warning.

So while the Honda Ridgeline doesn’t run away with the contest, it does have a lot going for it, but what do you think? We’d like to see what you have to say about this; do us a favour and leave your comments below.

    Ask the question 10 years from now and the answer will be quite apparent as to which truck is the winner out of this group. My 2005 Tacoma continues to be a refined beast.

    My 2007 Ridgeline is better looking. What is that little square thing in the middle of the rear window?
