2019 Honda Ridgeline vs 2019 Toyota Tacoma

Serving Hagerstown, MD

Pickup trucks have become more practical than ever before. They can tow a load while still treating your family to a comfortable ride. While the midsize truck segment has some great options, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline stands out in several key categories. You’ll especially enjoy the Ridgeline’s sedan-like handling and family-friendly interior. Some people may also be interested in the new Toyota Tacoma. Let’s take a closer look at how the 2019 Honda Ridgeline stacks up against the 2019 Toyota Tacoma.

Performance & Fuel Economy

All versions of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline come standard with a 3.5-liter, i-VTEC V6 engine. It’s rated to develop a healthy 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. You’ll find the 2019 Toyota Tacoma’s base four-cylinder engine to be far less potent, which produces 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. To get the Tacoma with a capable V6 engine, buyers must spend more money. Stronger fuel economy gives the Ridgeline yet another edge over the competition.


Today’s pickup trucks are used for more than just hauling and towing cargo. They also prove to be worthy of family vehicles. If you need to cater to your loved ones, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is the better choice. When sitting in the Ridgeline’s backseat, passengers will enjoy significantly more legroom.

Furthermore, you cannot get the 2019 Toyota Tacoma with comforts like power-adjustable front seats. While the Tacoma does provide a good number of standard features, it fails to offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone support on any trim. Also, only the Ridgeline provides a truck bed audio system. This exclusive feature makes tailgating at events especially fun.


The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a remarkably secure family hauler.Luckily, both trucks offer active safety technologies like automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. One feature not provided on the Tacoma is Honda’s Lane Watch camera system, which helps reduce passenger-side blind spots.

A much stronger standard engine, a roomier interior design, and better crash scores help the 2019 Honda Ridgeline to win this comparison. To experience how the new Ridgeline compares to the 2019 Toyota Tacoma, head down to Hagerstown Honda for a test drive.
