2013 Honda RidgelineThe 2013 Honda Ridgeline has a lot to offer Frankfort, IL drivers who are looking for the rugged capability of a pickup with plenty of comfort and convenience for daily driving. At Community Honda of Orland Park, we think it simply offers more value than many more traditional pickups. Here a few reasons we think the Ridgeline comes out on top when compared to the 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

Why the Ridgeline Excels

  • Power and efficiency – The 2013 Honda Ridgeline boasts an impressive 250 hp from its 3.5L V6 — that bests the 4.0L V6 in the Tacoma by 14 hp. Despite that added power, the 2013 Ridgeline RT with automatic transmission and the Tacoma 4×4 Double Cab V6 both get 21 mpg on the highway.*
  • Interior space – The Ridgeline simply offers more interior space than the Tacoma. There’s 112 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Ridgeline, compared to the 98.9 cubic feet in the Tacoma, and that results in more front and rear headroom, more front and rear hip room, and more rear legroom. Stretch out and relax in the Ridgeline.
  • Convenient storage – While both of these trucks have similar bed lengths, only the Ridgeline has a trunk. This under-the-bed storage space is great for locking up valuables out of sight, stowing emergency supplies, or almost anything you can think of.
  • Payload and towing capacity – The Honda Ridgeline can simply haul more stuff: you can pile 1,537 pounds in the bed of the Ridgeline, while the Tacoma will only carry 1,315 pounds. The Ridgeline is also good to pull more than the Tacoma, with a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds — the Toyota’s go t a 3,500-pound rating.
  • Parking assistance – It’s not easy to park a truck, especially in tight irregular spaces or crowded parking lots. The Ridgeline gives you a rear electronic parking aid with a camera to make this tough job even easier and safer. That feature will cost you extra on the Tacoma.
