The Toyota Tacoma Outshines Its Rivals in Capability, Off-Roading, and Reliability

If you're looking for a compact pickup truck that handles tricky terrain and tough hauling jobs with ease and has excellent predicted reliability, the Toyota Tacoma is a superb choice. The Tacoma is one of the best off-roaders in its class, and it rides comfortably on pavement. The 2018 Honda Ridgeline is another compact pickup truck with a composed ride and a spacious cabin. But here at Corwin Toyota of Bellevue, we think that given a closer look, drivers in the Omaha and Bellevue, NE areas will agree that the Tacoma is the better overall pickup truck.

Compare the Toyota Tacoma with the Honda Ridgeline

  • The Tacoma Has Better Hauling and Towing Capability: The Toyota Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds, while the Honda Ridgeline is limited to 5,000 pounds. People in the Council Bluffs and Lincoln areas who need to haul things will appreciate that the Tacoma also has a higher payload capacity - at 1,620 pounds compared to only 1,580 pounds for the Ridgeline.
  • The Tacoma Is Better for Off-Roading: The Toyota Tacoma is available in up-level off-road models that can handle any trail out there. There are several off-road features that improve performance, particularly on the TRD trims. The Tacoma is available in four-wheel drive, while the Ridgeline only offers all-wheel drive. Also, the Tacoma has 9.4 inches of ground clearance, while the Ridgeline has just 7.9 inches of clearance.
  • The Tacoma Is More Reliable: With a predicted reliability rating of 4.5 out of five from J.D. Power, the Toyota Tacoma is expected to be more reliable than any other compact pickup truck. The Honda Ridgeline has only an above-average predicted reliability rating of four out of five from J.D. Power.
  • Both the  Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline give you a smooth ride on the highway and have comfortable cabins with handy technology. But the Tacoma is clearly more reliable and capable. It can go off-road just as easily as it can get you to and from work each day. Drivers in the Papillion and La Vista areas can shop from a wide range of Tacoma models at Corwin Toyota of Bellevue.
