2017 Honda Ridgeline vs 2017 Toyota Tacoma
While there are some jobs that require serious towing and hauling ability, for many truck shoppers the ideal vehicle is one that can offer comfortable and maneuverable dimensions during highway and city travel, but also offer the versatility of a pickup bed. In this 2017 Honda Ridgeline vs 2017 Toyota Tacoma comparison, we are going to look at two midsize trucks that offer drivers that versatility. To compare the value that these pickups bring to the road, we are looking at the base RT trim on the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and the starting 2017 Toyota Tacoma SR.
The 2017 Honda Ridgeline RT comes standard with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that offers 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This engine is rated for up to 3,500 pounds of towing when properly equipped. The base engine on the 2017 Toyota Tacoma SR is a 2.7-liter four-cylinder that is rated for only 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The base trim of the Toyota midsize truck is also available with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, but even that engine option offers just 278 horsepower.
