The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Toyota Tacoma doesn't make a lot of sense, unless it'll live almost exclusively off-road. The 2014 Honda Ridgeline is a niche alternative for those who don't need a pickup bed all the time, but it doesn't satisfy drivers that need a real full-size truck.
