The unibody construction of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline has made it unique in the pickup segment, but how well does it compare against a true pickup rival like the 2019 Toyota Tacoma? In fact, comparing the Honda Ridgeline vs. Toyota Tacoma on the points that matter most to our neighbors, it isn’t hard to see that the Tacoma is still in a league of its own. Pickup drivers who value off-road performance, advanced safety features, and lasting value will want to pass over the Ridgeline for now.

Off-Road Capability: 2019 Ridgeline vs. Tacoma

It’s no secret: the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is meant to be driven on pavement. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma, on the other hand, is just as at home off-road as it is on the highways near Coppell and Flower Mound. Here, we’ve listed just a few of its advantages:

  • The Tacoma is available with 4WDemand part-time 4WD, while the Ridgeline only offers all-wheel drive. The latter was designed for on-road use, and the driver-activated Toyota system is superior when the going gets tough.
  • The Tacoma offers 9.4 inches of ground clearance, compared to 7.9 inches with the Ridgeline.
  • The Tacoma is available in two off-road focused configurations: the Tacoma TRD Off-Road and the Tacoma TRD Pro. When you upgrade with one of these models you’ll receive Crawl Control, multi-terrain select, heavy-duty suspension, TRD-branded features, and much more.

On top of all this, the Tacoma is also significantly better at towing heavy cargo. The 2019 Tacoma towing capacity ranges between 3,500 and 6,800 pounds, while the Ridgeline towing capacity varies between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds, depending on which trim you choose.

Which Pickup is Safer: 2019 Tacoma or Ridgeline?

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline was named as a Top Safety Pick by the experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and if you haven’t done your research, you might think that this means its the smarter choice! However, the Ridgeline has a secret: Its most advanced safety features, included with the Honda Sensing package, are only available on its RTL-E and Black Edition trims.

Drivers who choose the Toyota Tacoma will receive the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) package, standard, in every trim. Like the Honda Sensing package, TSS P includes advanced safety features that use cameras and sensors to keep you out of harm’s way. Features include the Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Alert with Steering Assist, and more.

Pricing and Value: Honda Ridgeline vs. Toyota Tacoma

Comparing the price tags of the Tacoma and the Ridgeline, it’s easy to see why Toyota appeals to a wider range of drivers. Both models offer a wide range of upgrades and options, but the Tacoma starting price is more than $4,000 lower than the starting price of the Ridgeline! These pickups start at $25,700 MSRP* and $29,990 MSRP, respectively.

Each year, the writers at Kelley Blue Book create a list of the ten vehicles with the Best Resale Value. Although the Ridgeline does well, retaining an estimated 51.3% of its value after 60 months, it can’t come close to matching the #1-ranking Toyota Tacoma. The latter is expected to be worth 62.2% of its new vehicle price after a full five years on the road.
