2016 Toyota Tundra vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline
Generally people consider the Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline pretty big rivals, but considering the Ridgeline is the only truck that Honda has to offer we thought we’d see how it measures up to our bigger truck as well by comparing the 2016 Toyota Tundra vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline. The all-new Ridgeline is quickly reestablishing itself as an exciting, innovative entry into the midsize pickup segment. But without having a larger sibling on the lineup, it also has to stand up to some of the more powerful trucks on the market, like our Tundra. So how does it compare?
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Tundra
Looking at the table above it becomes pretty clear that the Ridgeline is going to struggle when standing up to larger trucks like the Tundra. Starting from the top of the table, the Tundra provides an extra 30 horsepower thanks to its larger engine. While the 2017 Ridgeline provides a powerful 3.5L V6 engine, the Tundra is powered by an impressive 4.6L V8 leaving the Ridgeline in its dust. What comes with a larger, more powerful engine? Better capabilities.
The one area that the Ridgeline actually surprises is in terms of max payload. While the Tundra is able to hold more weight in its bed than its rival, the advantage is only by 75 lbs. which means the Ridgeline can hold its own. But the disadvantage is quickly overlooked by anyone who will be doing a lot of hauling, as the Tundra can accommodate an extra 3,200 lbs. towed behind it.
