2020 Honda Ridgeline vs 2020 Toyota Tacoma

Just about every truck owner has their preference as far as full-size trucks, but the world of mid-size trucks is an entirely different story with a different set of stars. One of the biggest stars in the world of mid-size trucks is the Toyota Tacoma. This is partially due to how long the Tacoma has been around. 

Honda does have a competitor to the Tacoma in the form of the Honda Ridgeline. The Ridgeline started production first back in 2004, then took a break from 2015 to 2016, but it has been running strong ever since. Each model represents a different idea of what a mid-size pickup truck should be, so which one should you pick? Refer to the chart below for more information.

Comparison Analysis 

The Toyota Tacoma focuses heavily on towing and off-roading. The Honda Ridgeline sticks to its strengths as a cargo carrier and a practical daily vehicle. Also, the Ridgeline has been redesigned more recently, and just feels far more ready for the technological and cosmetic standards of drivers in the new decade. After all, shouldn’t most of the big towing and hauling jobs be left to larger trucks? The Honda Ridgeline still has its own penchant for off-roading, but also comfort and entertainment. Might as well purchase the Ridgeline if you want a smaller pickup truck.
