Re: Comparing Tacoma

Nice to see them side by side. I wanted to buy a Tacoma, but they were too expensive for my budget with at least 20k more miles than what I got my RL for. Saved some cash and got a truck that is not so common that you see every day. Made a good choice and happy

Re: Comparing Tacoma

That makes my decision to buy a RL even better as I was second guessing as to whether I should have explored the Tacoma more. Not based on anything as we just got our RL and love it so far.

Re: Comparing Tacoma

If we are going to compare Ridgelines to Tacomas, Here is a pic of my 2008 Ridgeline beside my fathers 2013 Tacoma in Nova Scotia shortly after I bought it.



His is a 2.7L 4 banger with a 5 speed so its not going to win any races but having driven it lots I can say its a very nice truck. I like the ride of the ridgeline better. The ridge is on a little bit of a hill on the grass but normally the tacoma sits just a hair taller than the ridgeline, but the ridgeline is definitely wider. If I needed a "truck" truck I would have a Tacoma in heart beat. They are a little smaller in side but they are definitely boss trucks.

Dad always says, "ill kick your butt on the trail young man!" and I always say, "race ya!".

2015 Accord EX-L V6

Previous Rides:
2008 Ridgeline, 2010 Honda Civic Sport, 2003 Acura MDX, 2005 Acura TL, 1998 Accord V6 EXL, 1995 Accord EX (x3), 1995 Acura Integra

i'd be surprised it the tacoma can beat the ridgeline in any category.

Re: Comparing Tacoma

Tacoma will win off road every time. ( hill climb, deep mud, soft sand, ruts, air ...)
