2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2019 Toyota Tacoma

Are you in the market for a new midsize truck? It’s likely that the Honda Ridgeline and the 2019 Toyota Tacoma are at the top of your list. So how do you choose between the two? When you look at the Ridgeline and the Tacoma side by side, the Ridgeline is the clear winner. Here’s why:

Standard Engine

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This engine generates 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque and enables the Ridgeline to tow up to 5,000 pounds. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma, on the other hand, is powered by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with VVT-I at the base level, linked to a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. This engine only manages 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the Tacoma can only tow up to 3,500 pounds — 1,500 less than the base Ridgeline model.


According to Autotrader, the Ridgeline benefits from borrowing its interior from the Pilot SUV. This makes the 2019 Honda Ridgeline’s interior much more sophisticated and comfortable than the interior of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma. Specifically, Autotrader compliments the Ridgeline’s ergonomics, comfortable seating, and elegance.

A Trim Comparison: Ridgeline RTL-E vs. Tacoma Limited 4x4

The Ridgeline’s range-topping trim is the RTL-E, and the Limited is at the top of the Tacoma’s hierarchy. So the two should offer similar features, right? Wrong. The 2019 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E stands out from the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Limited 4x4 in a number of ways, including:
  • More passenger volume (108.9 cubic feet vs. 100.1 cubic feet).
  • Better truck bed features, including a standard dual-action tailgate, truck-bed audio system, lay-flat truck bed, and lockable in-bed trunk, none of which are available on the Tacoma Limited.
  • Standard Android Auto™ integration, which is not available on the Tacoma Limited.

For as much as the Honda Ridgeline separates itself from the Toyota Tacoma on paper, the real difference to note is the one you feel when you place your hands on the steering wheel and your foot on the pedal. Stop into Avery Greene Honda and experience for yourself what makes the Honda Ridgeline such a wonderful pickup.
