17 Oct 2017 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2017 Chevy Colorado
Both the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and the 2017 Chevy Colorado have seen recent updates to better appeal to drivers across the country. These two models prove that the midsize pickup segment is no longer neglected. The Colorado is more of a traditional pickup. The Ridgeline stands out from the crowd in design and features, making it a highly appealing choice.
Riding and Handling
Experts agree that the 2017 Ridgeline beats the 2017 Chevy Colorado when it comes to handling and ride quality. This is largely due to its car-like construction. The Ridgeline is based on the Pilot, a crossover SUV. While driving the Ridgeline, you will truly feel as if you are behind the wheel of a car, albeit a tall one with excellent views of the road. The ride is smooth and composed, and you won’t bounce over bumps. While the Colorado does OK in this category, it can’t hold up to the Ridgeline.
2017 Honda Ridgeline vs. 2017 Chevy Colorado: Technology
If you want the latest technology in your pickup truck, consider the Ridgeline over the Colorado. Both models can give you touchscreens, Apple CarPlay, Pandora internet radio, and as many as four USB ports. Only the Ridgeline offers Android Auto, giving it a huge advantage for Android users.
2017 Ridgeline vs. 2017 Colorado: Cabin Quality
While the Colorado’s cabin is nice, the Honda Ridgeline’s is truly high quality with rich materials. It also wins in terms of cabin versatility thanks to a truly spacious center console and a rear 60/40 split seat that can fold up and down. Flipping it up will give you a flat load floor.
Other Innovative Features in the Ridgeline
To cement the 2017 Honda Ridgeline’s lead, this pickup also comes with some class-exclusive features that are incredibly innovative. The bed has a dual-action tailgate that you can flip down like a traditional tailgate or swing outward. There is also a unique under-bed storage compartment that locks, large, and drains. There are even available speakers integrated into the truck bed for tailgating.
