2019 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2019 Honda Ridgeline

The compact pickup segment is notoriously competitive, with the 2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. Toyota Tacoma being two top choices. However, when it comes to body style options, off-road capability, and starting price, the Tacoma comes out ahead. Whether you’re tearing up trails near Hickory or navigating city streets, it’s the smarter choice. Compare the two today before you see how the Tacoma matches up with the Ford Ranger.

Starting Price

The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is a popular choice at Lincolnton jobsites due to its budget-friendly price and strong dependability:

  • 2019 Toyota Tacoma SR – $25,550 MSRP
  • 2019 Honda Ridgeline RT – $29,990 MSRP

In addition the Tacoma is offered in a range of configurations and sizes, including two lengths and two different cab styles: the Access Cab and Double Cab. The Ridgeline is only offered in the standard length, crew cab style.

Off-Road Features

When it comes to off-road capability, the Honda Ridgeline is restricted by its lack of features. It’s available with all-wheel drive in all trim levels except the base trim, but that’s the extent of its off-road upgrades. In contrast, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is a fully-fledged off-road pickup. You’ll find the following systems:

  • TRD-Tuned High-Performance FOX 2.5 Internal Bypass Shocks – These tough shocks let the Tacoma TRD Pro crawl over rocks and dirt on rugged off-road trails.
  • TRD Pro Skid Plate – You’ll want to protect your pickup from rock strikes and other damage, and the TRD Pro’s skid plate does just that.
  • TRD PRO Cat-Back Exhaust – The V6 engine produces an exhaust note enhanced by this feature. It’s chrome-plated to shine through thick layers of mud.
