2018 Toyota Tundra vs. 2018 Honda Ridgeline
Drivers don’t need to spend too long comparing Toyota Tundra vs. Honda Ridgeline. From horsepower and torque to safety features, the Toyota Tundra comes out well ahead.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra offers two engine options:
- 4.6L V8: Makes up to 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque.
- 5.7L V8: Makes up to 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque.
The 2019 Honda Ridgeline falls flat with a single 3.5L V6 for 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque — that’s less than the Toyota offers as standard and considerably less than the Toyota is capable of with its 5.7L. Whether accelerating from standstill in Joliet or changing into the fast lane between Aurora and Oak Brook, the difference makes itself known.
The 2019 Honda Ridgeline already has a reputation or looking like a truck without actually acting like one. Compare its capability specs against those of the new Tundra
and you’ll quickly understand why:
- Maximum Tow Rating: Up to 10,100 pounds with the Toyota pickup vs. just 5,000 pounds with the Honda.
- Maximum Payload: Up to 1,660 pounds with the Toyota pickup vs. just 1,465 pounds with the Honda.
- Ground Clearance: Up to 10.4 inches with the Toyota pickup vs. 7.9 inches with the Honda.
The 2018 Toyota Tundra might be known for its exceptional capability, but that doesn’t mean safe driving is neglected. If you need proof, just check out the standard Toyota Safety Sense
™ P (TSS-P) package:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
- Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Sway Warning System (SWS)
- Automatic High Beams (AHB)
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
These features are available with the 2018 Honda Ridgeline, but only when you spend more upgrading to a pricier trim level.
