2017 Honda Ridgeline, Colorado, Tacoma and Frontier Fight It Out

By  | 

When the 2017 Honda Ridgeline made its way to the Detroit show it absolutely stunned the visitors. At the same time the vehicle did receive some comments that didn’t show it off in the best of light. Some of the worst were about the looks of the vehicle.

People have now started to compare the 2017 Honda Ridgeline with rivals that are much tougher, including the Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado and the Nissan Frontier. But the big question is whether it is able to stand up to the midsize trucks.

The Chevrolet Colorado does offer up the most horses and the Nissan Frontier comes with more torque. The Honda Ridgeline is therefore left out in both of these. When it comes to the payload for towing it is the Chevrolet Colorado that comes out ahead, with the Ridgeline falling behind as the Colorado offers 7,000lbs of towing power.

The Honda Ridgeline may not offer the heaviest of the payloads but it does support a wide payload. This means that at least there is one way in which the Ridgeline is ahead.

For safety you would have thought that the Toyota Tacoma that comes ahead thanks to the blind spot monitoring, however the Honda Ridgeline beats it thanks to it having a lot of top of the range safety features. It comes with lane departure warning and more.
