The 2013 Honda Ridgeline vs. the 2013 Toyota Tacoma

2013 Honda RidgelineIf you’re seeking a new pickup truck around Raynham, then you know to visit us for the 2013 Honda Ridgeline, right? This pickup stands out among the current lineup here at Silko Honda for its ability to switch it up between work and fun. When it comes to a class as diverse as the truck, though, there will always be competition. Let’s look at how the 2013 Toyota Tacoma compares to Honda’s pickup.

The Ridgeline Overpowers the Tacoma

There are lots of different reasons why drivers choose pickup trucks, but power is usually on everyone’s list. Having that point on your side already makes for a pretty compelling argument, and we’re proud to say that the Ridgeline gives drivers 250 hp out of its V6 engine, compared to the Tacoma’s 236 hp.

This means a greater payload capacity as well, allowing Honda drivers to pack up to 1537 pounds in their pickup, while the Toyota can only handle 1315 pounds. That a trailer hitch comes standard on the Ridgeline is just another indication that Honda knows you want to get the most out of your pickup, while Toyota expects you to shell out to add on options like a trailer hitch or extra seatback storage.

Standard Features

The trailer hitch and seatback storage aren’t the only features you’ll find lacking on the Toyota; Honda has given a new meaning to “standard features,” including many amenities on their basic Ridgeline models that you won’t find on the Tacoma.

Some of the features that come standard on Honda’s pickup include:

  • Rear electronic parking assistance
  • Rearview camera system
  • Cruise control
  • Steering wheel-mounted cruise and infotainment controls
  • Multi-function remote
