2017 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline
So, you’ve found yourself in the market for a midsize pickup, have you? If this is indeed the case, you’re almost certainly weighing the need for versatility and capability, while also finding an appealing addition to your driveway collection. The two models shown here, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, certainly fit the bill in this regard. But how do they stack up head to head?
Right off the bat, you can see a pretty sizeable disparity in starting MSRP. However, don’t be fooled into thinking that the Tacoma isn’t an able competitor to the Ridgeline. In fact, although both feature similar top powertrains that produce similar horsepower and torque, the Tacoma responds by offering a sizeable advantage in terms of towing capacity. So, what else can it offer for prospective buyers?
