2020 Honda Ridgeline vs Toyota Tacoma

Cruise through the sand, tow your boat, and get ready to enjoy all sorts of fun adventures in either the 2020 Honda Ridgeline or 2020 Toyota Tacoma. Drivers in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, and North Port looking for a truck with versatile capabilities will find that these two models are ready for any activities you have planned.

Our Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Port Charlotte team takes a closer look at the 2020 Honda Ridgeline vs. Toyota Tacoma so you can see which truck offers you the best utility, performance, and features.  

2020 Honda Ridgeline Cargo

Hauling Cargo with Your Truck

With either truck, you will have room for tools and supplies for your next DIY project or your ATV when heading out to the trails, thanks to the space you’ll have in the bed. You can keep all of your items secured while driving too by using the heavy-duty tie-down cleats found in both truck beds. 

Fitting everything in the bed of your truck is an easy task in the 2020 Ridgeline, too, since it is designed with minimal wheel-well housings. This way, you can lie big pieces of plywood flat in the back of your truck.

Loading and unloading items is also made easier thanks to the dual-action tailgate that can open both down and to the side. Then, store even more items in the bed of the Honda Ridgeline with its additional 7.3 cubic feet of cargo volume found inside the In-Bed Trunk®.

2020 Honda Ridgeline Engine Specs

Ridgeline vs Tacoma: Performance

Both new trucks will give you the capability to tow your fishing boat or trailer and ride over all types of terrain. However, the Ridgeline will also give you more power when you need to quickly pass other vehicles along the highway. That is because its 3.5L V6 engine produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.

The Tacoma comes standard with a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine that only creates 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. With a 9-speed automatic transmission, the 2020 Ridgeline gives you an extremely smooth and efficient ride for a truck. The Tacoma’s engine comes paired with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Honda Ridgeline with Apple CarPlay® Technology

Tech Features in the Honda Ridgeline vs Toyota Tacoma

Each truck comes with an available 8-inch touch-screen, which can display your smartphone’s applications when you connect your device to the system through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.

This system will let you play your favorite music while driving inside either truck. You can also turn on one of your playlists and have it play through the available truck-bed audio system of the new Honda Ridgeline while working or during your next big tailgate party.

Both trucks also come with a bundle of driver-assistive features that helps make your daily commute even safer. With Toyota Safety Sense™ P and Honda Sensing®, you will have systems that can keep you a safe following distance from the car ahead of you and get alerts if you start to drift too far to one side or the other.

Only the Honda Ridgeline has the Lane Keeping Assist System, though. This makes those longer highway drives easier since this system can make small steering adjustments to keep you centered in the lane.
