2017 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline
When buyers are looking for a midsize pickup, whether they’re admitting it to themselves or not, they’re really looking to tap into a niche that prides itself on its versatility. The two models shown here, the 2017 Toyota Tacoma and 2017 Honda Ridgeline, pair up to be a portrait of versatility, equally capable of taking on an impressive workload as they are in serving as a daily driver. But how do they compare to one another?
The first item to jump off the page is the starting MSRP, which is several thousand dollars higher for the competing Honda. However, this certainly doesn’t mean that the Tacoma is operating on a lower plane than the Ridgeline. Instead, it offers a similar amount of standard power, along with a far greater towing capacity. So, what else is in store for the buyer of a 2017 Toyota Tacoma?

The Tacoma has been dominating roads (and off-roads) for more than two decades, and so it’s exciting to see all of the terrific strides it makes for the 2017 model year. Available with the choice of two excellent engines -- a 2.7L four-cylinder or a 3.5L Atkinson-cycle V6 -- buyers enjoy up to 23 highway mpg in the four-cylinder option, or a brawny 6,800-pound towing capacity in the V6. Additionally, with the popular TRD Pro returning with Fox Internal Bypass shocks to tame all conditions, off-roaders will be at home in the Tacoma as well.
