2017 Honda Ridgeline vs. Chevrolet Colorado vs. Toyota Tacoma
For drivers who don’t need a full-size truck, but still love the versatility offered by a pickup, a mid-size truck is the way to go. In the past few years, this segment has gotten better than ever and one of the best options is the redesigned 2017 Honda Ridgeline . We’ll compare it to the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma to show you why it stands out.
For starters, the Ridgeline comes with one of the most useful beds of any truck. It comes standard with a composite layer to prevent scratches and dents. In addition, buyers will love the dual opening tailgate and the hidden trunk. None of these features are available on either the Colorado or Tacoma.
Another place where the Honda Ridgeline stands out is interior space. Every trim comes standard with four doors and backseat passengers will have plenty of room to stretch out with 36.7 inches of leg room, compared to only 28.6 inches in the Colorado and 24.6 in the Tacoma.
The Ridgeline also performs well when it comes to efficiency. It standard 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 delivers 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway*. This is the same as the Colorado, but 3 mpg better than the Tacoma on the highway.
