2019 Toyota Tacoma vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline

Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline in comparison image

When you’re looking for the functionality and raw masculinity that trucks provide, but don’t need all the extra space and power that heavy-duty pickups are known for, the vehicles that populate the mid-size truck market are some of your best choices. Two of the undisputed frontrunners of the light-duty industry are the all-new 2019 Toyota Tacoma and 2019 Honda Ridgeline models, which bring all the heaping amounts of fun, excitement and rugged individualism that we so desire. It’s no surprise, then, that these two have grown to become some of the most sought-after pickups for consumers everywhere. So, which one best suits what you’re looking for?

With a lower starting price and longer maximum bed length (73.2 inches to the Ridgeline’s 63.8 inches), the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is certainly starting this comparison off on the right foot. The choice ultimately lies with you, however, so keep reading with Jimmy Vasser Toyota to see more of what these market kings can do when stacked up head-to-head!

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma and 2019 Honda Ridgeline both have your ultimate comfort and convenience in mind, with each offering high-level driver assistance features (notably Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist) and great infotainment connectivity to keep you moving forward with confidence. However, if your daily travels include more hauling and off-roading than most, the 2019 Tacoma definitely warrants a second glance. Not only does the Tacoma offer up to a ton of greater towing capacity than its Honda counterpart, but with a high-strength Four-Wheel Drive system and Trailer-Sway Control built in, you’ll have a much better handle on your cargo and your drive with a Toyota pickup by your side.
