2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2019 Chevy Colorado
There is something uniquely American about pickup trucks. The platform accounts for a fairly disproportionate number of overall vehicle sales each year. Honda’s take on the platform offers buyers looking at a midsize pickup truck something outside of the norm. A comparison between the 2019 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2019 Chevy Colorado will clearly illustrate the differences between the two vehicles. Historically, pickup trucks are built with a body-on-frame architecture. The 2019 Honda Ridgeline uses a unibody type of construction, very similar to what is used by the automaker’s lineup up crossover SUVs. There are a few reasons why Honda made this choice, but one of the primary ones is that this method will make the Ridgeline handle better than many of its competitors.

Customers can choose among six trim grades when they are considering the 2019 Honda Ridgeline, RT, Sport, RTL, RTL-T, RTL-E and Black Edition. There are a few similarities between the 2019 Ridgeline and 2019 Colorado. Both models come with seating for up to five passengers. However, of the two trucks, only the current Ridgeline can comfortably accommodate passengers across the entire trim ladder. In order for a 2019 Colorado owner to match that flexibility, they will have to choose a higher trim of the Chevy midsize pickup truck. Independent online reviews have praised the 2019 Ridgeline for offering a smooth and confident handling thanks to the truck’s independent rear suspension. Those same reviewers had a lot to say about the convenient small-item storage found through the Honda truck’s interior.
|2019 Honda Ridgeline RT, 2WD||Vs.||2019 Chevy Colorado|
|3.5-L, V-6||Engine||2.5-L, 4-Cyl.|

|3,500 lbs.||Towing||3,500 lbs.|
All six trim grades of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline use the same powertrain. Under the hood of the midsize pickup truck is a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine attached to a six-speed automatic transmission, making 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Versions of the Ridgeline with two-wheel-drive can pull 3,500 pounds or customers choose trims with all-wheel-drive that will be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. Owners who anticipate doing a lot of towing will want to look at the Sport, RTL and RTL-T modes with the available heavy-duty transmission cooler. The RTL-E and Black Edition have the transmission cooler as standard equipment.
The standard powertrain for the 2019 Chevy Colorado is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, inline four-cylinder engine attached to a six-speed manual transmission. It will produce less power than the standard engine of the Ridgeline, topping out at 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque.
