2014 Honda Ridgeline vs 2014 Toyota Tacoma

When comparing the 2014 Honda Ridgeline vs 2014 Toyota Tacoma, both of the light duty pickups are quality trucks, but when it comes to the capabilities that matter most to buyers in the truck segment, the Ridgeline stands out as the clear winner.

When it comes to equipment, the Ridgeline seems to be at a disadvantage, yet it still beats out the Tacoma in a number of categories. Despite the fact that the Ridgeline is almost 300 pounds heavier than the Tacoma, it’s capable of the same highway fuel economy of 21 mpg. The engine is also smaller in the Ridgeline. Though both pickups come standard with a V6 under the hood, the 4.0-liter engine is larger than the 3.5-liter found in the Ridgeline. However, even with less room for displacement, the Ridgeline throws down 250 horsepower—slightly more than the Tacoma. The increased power gives the Ridgeline a heavier payload and it allows the pickup to tow about 1,500 pounds more than the Tacoma.

Versatility of the Honda Ridgeline

What really separates the 2014 Honda Ridgeline from the 2014 Toyota Tacoma are the class-exclusive features of the flexible and versatile truck bed.

It all starts with the sloped sides of the truck bed which break the Ridge from the mold and help to distinguish it from the other trucks on the road. Accessing the contents of the truck bed have never been easier as the Ridgeline implements a dual-action tailgate. It drops down like most tailgates, but it also opens like a door, keeping you from having to crawl into the bed just to grab something. The tailgate also makes it easier to access the lockable in-bed trunk which offers an additional 8.5 cubic feet of storage. Further adding to the convenience of the bed is a cargo box light which comes standard in the Ridgeline. If you opt for the Tacoma, you may want to buy a flashlight as a light in the bed is not even made available.

If you are looking for a truck capable of getting 21 mpg* on the highway, why not choose the one with the superior capabilities. To find out more about the Ridgeline, get in touch with the experts at Benson Honda and experience the difference that can only be found in the 2014 Honda Ridgeline.
