Honda RidgelineIf you’re in the market for an impressive, feature-rich pickup truck, you may wonder how the 2016 Toyota Tacoma’s standard features compare to the offerings of rival trucks. Does the Tacoma offer up the kinds of prime amenities you’re looking for, or does a competing truck model like the 2017 Honda Ridgeline deliver more?

Come along with us as we compare the standard amenities of the Ridgeline and the Tacoma. One truck clearly outshines the other when it comes to standard features—but we’ll let the facts speak for themselves!

Winning Features

As one examines the standard amenities offered by the Ridgeline and the Tacoma, it becomes quickly evident that the Honda Ridgeline brings an array of premium features to the road that the Tacoma does not. These features are either not available at all for the Tacoma or are only offered as extra-cost upgrades.

Included among them are some industry firsts. For instance, the Ridgeline features a standard dual-action tailgate that is the first of its kind in the automotive market; no other truck has one, including the Toyota Tacoma. This groundbreaking tailgate can be vertically lowered, like other tailgates, but it can also be swung open horizontally.

The Ridgeline further offers a standard in-bed trunk, which is another first in the world of trucks that the Tacoma and other current pickup models do not have. This innovative, bed-integrated trunk can be locked, delivers 7.3 cubic feet of storage room, and also has a built-in drain plug that allows it to serve as an ice chest when needed.

Other features that come standard onboard the Honda Ridgeline but not the Toyota Tacoma include:

  • Variable Cylinder Management
  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • A remote vehicle starting system
  • Auto-on/off headlights
  • A capless fuel filler
  • An easy tire-fill system
  • A locking fuel door
