All the fantastic car like comforts with a bed. Welcome to the Wonderful World of Ridgeline. My wife drives ours most of the time, so I feel your pain lolFirst post here. Yesterday I traded in my 2021 Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 for a Ridgline and I am so much happy I did it. First off, the Tacoma is a fantastic truck. Super reliable, solid, lots of tech and features but far more of a Truck than I needed. I don't tow large trailers. I don't offroad. The 4x4 was good for the tiny handful of days that we had snow in Massachusetts this winter. The Tacoma had barely acceptable seats, was very loud and bumpy. It was also very cramped for space. Our family always traveled in the wife's Tucson because it is a much more comforatable vehicle for long trips.
What shocked me is that the dealer gave me $40,000 for my Tacoma with 13k miles. I paid $36,500 when purchased new in March of 2021. Was able to pick up the Ridgline RTL-E for MSRP at 45,150.
Now regarding the Ridgline. It is by far most gentle vehicle I have owned. Very quite, comfortable spacious cabin. Driving feels like floating on a cloud vs the Tacoma. The AWD system is really a much better option for dealing with weather related driving. I've only been driving it for a short time however this vehicle feels SO much nicer than the Tacoma. It's much better suited for our needs which are hauling the kayaks, bikes, random objects. And I love all the just nice features (the truck bed storage is really useful). The only problem now is that the wife is eying my Ridgline as hers now....I may end up with the Tucson.
