Honda RidgelineThe 2016 Toyota Tacoma is a pickup truck that offers drivers in the Metro Milwaukee area comfort, convenience, and tech features. But how do those features compare to the competition? Metro Milwaukee Honda Dealers takes a look at one of its main competitors on the road: the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Which vehicle offers drivers more features and value for the money? Let’s take a look.

Standard Features and Equipment

For an even comparison, we take the entry-level 2017 Honda Ridgeline RT and compare it to the mid-level SR5 V6 Double Cab. Both pickups are comparatively priced and have room enough for five passengers. But which one comes out on top with more features?

The Honda Ridgeline comes equipped with standard features such as:

  • Rear window defroster
  • Floor mats
  • Alloy wheels
  • Front adjustable seat height
  • Stereo anti-theft
  • And more!

To compare, the Tacoma also offers floor mats, but only as an available option, even at this mid-level trim, and doesn’t offer any of the other features listed above.


If you’re looking for towing capabilities, the Ridgeline has the Tacoma beat there, too, offering a trailer hitch, towing pre-wiring, and towing stability, all as standard equipment. The Tacoma doesn’t offer any of these features at this level and is only capable of towing 3,500 pounds. The Ridgeline, on the other hand, is ready to tow up to 5,000 pounds with AWD.

Cargo and Storage

The Ridgeline also features extra storage and organizational features such as armrest storage and seatback storage, plus a cargo light box so you can load and unload even in the dark. You won’t find these inside the Tacoma.

The Ridgeline also has a bigger bed, measuring at 64.0 x 60.0 inches compared to the Tacoma’s bed, which measures at just 60.5 x 57.7 inches.
