2017 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline

The mid-size pickup truck class is hotly contested these days. While the Toyota Tacoma ruled the roost for years without serious competition, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is quite the contender, with a comfortable cabin and a car-like ride. Can the Ridgeline keep up? We at Royal Palm Toyota will take a look at how they stack up against each other.

On or Off-Road?

The Tacoma is a conventional body-on-frame pickup truck, while the Ridgeline uses unibody construction. Although Tacoma gets the nod on the toughest off-road trails, the Ridgeline almost keeps up off the beaten path. On paved roads, the Tacoma again excels where it delivers superior ride and handling.

Horsepower

The Tacoma is offered with a 159 horsepower 2.7-liter inline four-cylinder or a 278 horsepower 3.5-liter V6. All Ridgelines are equipped with a 280 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, giving them a two-horsepower advantage.

Fuel Economy

The most fuel efficient 2017 Tacoma is EPA rated at 19 city/24 highway miles per gallon when equipped with two-wheel-drive and the 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Ridgeline delivers a slightly higher level of efficiency out on the open road, with the front-wheel-drive model rated at 19 city/26 highway.

Cargo Bed

The Tacoma’s cargo bed is work-oriented, with a handy optional sliding tie-down system. The Ridgeline gets the job done, but it’s all about the Tacoma’s party, with a cooler-like space below the cargo floor (complete with drain plug), optional speakers stealthily built into the cargo bed walls, and an innovative two-way tailgate. The Tacoma takes the reigns on this one.

If you are looking for a truck, the 2017 Tacoma is the way to go. Stop by Royal Palm Toyota to check out all the cool features and take a test drive today!

Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale List: the Toyota Tacoma, 4Runner, and Tundra

Kelley Blue Book (KBB) is one of the most useful resources for today’s information-seeking driver. The company catalogs information on just about every make and model of automobile on the market today and organizes that information into categories that may appeal to drivers.

One such area of interest is the resale value of a vehicle. This plays a huge role in decision making when it comes time to buy or sell a car. Resale value can be thought of as how much a vehicle can be worth after a period of time. Usually and understandably, cars are worth more when they’re new. Classics and one-offs are a different story.

KBB provides a list of cars with the best resale value. Of the 10 cars that appear on the most recent list, Toyota takes three spots, making it one of only two auto manufacturers to appear more than once. What’s even better for Toyota is where its cars appear on the list. The company holds the number one spot, the number two spot, and the number six spot.

2016 Toyota 4Runner

The 4Runner faces tough competition from other auto manufacturers from time to time, but it managed to make the number two spot on KBB’s list of vehicles with the best resale value.

The SUV market is flooded with different takes on the class. The 4Runner does everything all of the other SUVs can do and then some, but it does so without hemorrhaging dollar signs behind it as it is driven down the road.

For its longevity, durability, and ability to tackle obstacles other SUVs can’t, the 4Runner belongs on KBB’s list.

2016 Toyota Tundra

Although the Tundra is a little lower on the list than the Tacoma and the 4Runner, it’s Toyota’s biggest, meanest, most powerful truck.

The Tundra can tow and haul a massive amount of weight, beating out domestic competitors by getting the job done without breaking the bank.

The Tundra will always sell well because it’s a strong, capable workhorse that shrugs off wear and tear.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma vs Nissan Frontier: Who’s More Fierce?

The battle of the pickup trucks is on, and Toyota and Nissan are in the heat of battle. In this war the question is simple – who’s fiercer, and in the end the answer is very clear.

When you are in the market for a new pickup truck, you want a vehicle that is smart, stylish and technologically advanced, but above all you want a vehicle that can take the punishments of daily life and emerged unscathed. Simply put, you want a fierce pickup truck to haul your lumber, pack your gear, tow your boat and make your life easier. Both the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma are fierce in their own ways, but in the end it is the Tacoma that comes out on top.

It is no accident that the Toyota Tacoma has led the way in the mid-size truck market, outselling rivals from North America, Asia and Europe on its way to sales dominance. Those impressive sales figures mean that drivers love the Tacoma, and that has made it hard for rivals to make any kind of inroad.

The 2016 Nissan Frontier puts up a good fight, and this smart and stylish mid-size pickup truck does have a great deal to offer. At the end of the day, however, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma proves yet again that it is a few steps ahead of its rivals in terms of power, performance and, yes, fierceness.

The newest version of the Nissan Frontier comes equipped with a V6 4.0-liter engine with 261-horsepower. That is a powerful engine, but it is still not a match for the more fierce 2016 Toyota Tacoma. The 2016 version of the Tacoma features a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 17 more horses under the hood. The V6 in the 2016 Toyota Tacoma delivers 278-horsepower, providing extra pickup and more oomph for towing those heavy trailers.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is also better when it comes to fuel economy. Again the 2016 Nissan Frontier is a worthy competitor, with a respectable 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. But the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is even more fuel efficient, with a rating of up to 19 mpg in the city and up to 24 mpg on the highway. Those couple miles per gallon may not seem like much, but over thousands of gallons a year it can really make a difference.

So far it is clear that the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is the better choice, but this great mid-size pickup truck has even more to offer. Just about every pickup truck owner has found themselves stuck at some point, and the 2016 Toyota Tacoma provides an innovative way to get out of those sticky situations.

Dubbed Crawl Control, this unique feature allows the Tacoma to crawl its way out of mud, deep sand and other conditions that would leave many other vehicles literally stuck. As if that were not enough, the already fierce 2016 Toyota Tacoma can even be equipped with a GO-Pro mount, so drivers can record their off-road adventures and share the results with their friends.

Having a fierce pickup truck is important, and it is clear that the 2016 Toyota Tacoma is fiercer than ever. The rival Nissan Frontier tries hard, but in the end it is no match for the power, performance and fierce nature of the newest Tacoma model.

Actual mileage may vary with driving conditions – use for comparison purposes only.
