2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. Its Competition

2019 Honda Ridgeline
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Honda Ridgeline competes with other, growing mid-size pickups.

The Ford Ranger is new for 2019, and offers a relatively fuel-efficient turbo-4 and 10-speed automatic.

The Toyota Tacoma is the standard-bearer in the class, although it's not as refined.

The GMC Canyon/Chevrolet Colorado cover a lot of ground, from luxury to off-roading trucks, and are competent picks throughout the class—especially with the optional turbodiesel.

The Nissan Frontier is aged, and outgunned, but much less expensive.
