See why the 2014 Toyota Tacoma dominates this battle
It’s not without competition, though – remember what we said about how it’s the most popular type of truck? One of the big competitors that this new Toyota truck faces is the 2014 Honda Ridgeline! Both of these new trucks offer a pretty incredible driving experience, but we feel like the Orlando Toyota Tacoma Access Cab definitely has the edge… and we’re breaking down exactly why!
Truck drivers are usually on the lookout for a vehicle that can deliver in terms of performance, right? Check this out:
- The 2014 Toyota Tacoma may offer a little less horsepower than the Honda Ridgeline, but it has more torque under its belt – 266 lb-ft compared to the Honda’s 247 lb-ft. Torque can make a big difference when it comes to towing efficiency and off-roading!
- You’ll also get better city and combined fuel efficiency in this truck – the new Toyota Tacoma offers 17 mpg in the city and 19 mpg combined, while the Honda Ridgeline offers 15 mpg in the city and 17 mpg combined. These two trucks pull even in terms of highway mpg!
- The Orlando Toyota truck also has a bigger engine, boasting a 4.0L V6 under the hood as compared to the Honda’s 3.5L V6.
- The 2014 Toyota Tacoma additionally has a longer wheelbase, which means better handling off the pavement and on steep climbs.
You’ll also find that this new Toyota truck in Orlando excels in terms of price. The Access Cab V6 model starts out at $24,470, while the base level of the Honda Ridgeline starts at $30,405. Talk about a price difference.. and if you decide to go with the base level of the Toyota truck, the starting MSRP drops to $18,125!
Did we mention technology? We know that’s a big component for many drivers. Sure, you want a truck that can deliver in terms of performance, but you also want one that can take care of your connectivity needs. The 2014 Toyota Tacoma offers you standard features like Bluetooth wireless streaming and an auxilliary jack (not standard on its Honda competitor), and also offers options you won’t find on this trim-level of the Honda Ridgeline, like navigation and Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Why give up connectivity?
