2020 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline

Not many vehicle segments have had a resurgence like midsize pickup trucks. The Toyota Tacoma has been among the leaders in the class for a long time and is more than ready for the competition to bring their best to the game. A comparison of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2020 Honda Ridgeline will very clearly illustrate how the Toyota midsize pickup is able to retain its strong in-class position. The 2020 Tacoma offers more available performance and capability than its Honda rival, in addition to making more connectivity options available than what is found with the current Ridgeline. Independent reviews have praised the 2020 Tacoma for offering incredible off-road performance, a thoughtfully designed passenger cabin and an adaptable cargo bed.

Performance Specs and Towing Capacity

Toyota continues to offer the 2020 Tacoma with the same two engine options that have been available for a long time.

Base models will have a naturally aspirated 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It will make 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. These versions of the 2020 Tacoma will also be able to tow 3,500 pounds.

Colonial Toyota customers needing more power can choose a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that can be attached to either a six-speed manual or automatic. It will produce 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque as well as offer up to 6,800 pounds of towing. 

Honda only employs a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Honda pickup truck will make up to 280 horsepower but offers less towing capability than a similarly equipped version of the 2020 Tacoma.

A Honda Ridgeline with front-wheel-drive will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds and as much as 5,000 with all-wheel-drive.
