Key Differences – 2020 Toyota Tacoma vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline
Versatility and adaptability are critical to drivers, especially those in the market for a new pickup. The 2020 Tacoma lineup offers two powerful engine options, allowing drivers to create their perfect pickup. The standard 2.7-liter DOHC engine paired to a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission supplies the Tacoma with 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Those looking for more power can opt for the 278-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine that supplies 265 pound-feet of torque on the road. V6 Tacoma models come standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission but offer a 6-speed manual option for drivers looking for more control over their vehicle. When properly equipped, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma provides drivers with 6,800 pounds of maximum towing power. The competing 2019 Honda Ridgeline limits customers to just one engine and transmission option – a 3.5-liter 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC® V6 engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ridgeline delivers 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque while offers just 5,000 pounds of towing power.
For the 2020 model year, Toyota has upped its game when it comes to in-car technology and entertainment. 2020 Tacoma models come standard with an upgraded infotainment system that includes an impressive 7-inch touchscreen display, Amazon Alexa®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™. Higher Tacoma trim levels offer a larger 8-inch display in the center console with available features like the Panoramic View Monitor and Multi Terrain Monitor. The competing 2019 Honda Ridgeline comes standard with a 5-inch color LCD screen with Bluetooth® connectivity. To get additional features like Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, drivers must opt for one of the three highest trim levels out of the six-trim lineup.
