Comparing Standard Features

In contrasting the amenities offered onboard the Honda Ridgeline and the Toyota Tacoma, drivers will quickly notice that the Ridgeline serves up a variety of standout features that do not come standard onboard the Tacoma. These amenities are either not available for any of the Tacoma models or are only featured as optional upgrades for an extra cost.

The Honda Ridgeline has made waves during the 2017 model year by bringing some pioneering features to the road that have never before been available onboard a pickup truck. Included among them is the automotive industry’s very first in-bed trunk, which comes standard for all of the 2017 Ridgeline models but isn’t available onboard the Toyota Tacoma or any other currently available pickup. This impressive truck-bed trunk offers 7.3 cubic feet of cargo volume, is lockable, and even has a drain plug so it can double as an ice chest.

Another exclusive industry first that comes standard onboard the Honda Ridgeline but not any other truck, including the Tacoma, is a dual-action tailgate. This tailgate can be folded down like any ordinary tailgate, and it can also be swung open horizontally like a door.

Among other amenities that come standard for the Ridgeline but not the Tacoma, drivers will discover:

  • Truck bed lights
  • Anti-theft stereo
  • Remote vehicle start
  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • Auto-on/off headlights
  • Variable Cylinder Management
  • Easy tire-fill system
  • Capless fuel filler
  • Locking fuel door
