Pickup Wars: 2017 Honda Ridgeline vs 2017 Chevrolet Colorado
But when the 2017 Honda Ridgeline meets the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado, a pickup war begins. Pickup trucks are considered as one of the most versatile vehicles in the auto industry. They can be used as a daily vehicle, a family hauler and even an adventure partner. Due to this, the pickup truck segment has been steadily growing over the years.
Test Of Power
According to report, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is equipped with a V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers its power through a standard front wheel drive (FWD) drivetrain configuration. Accordingly, the base model is able to pull a maximum of 3,500 pounds while the upper trim is capable of towing 5,000 pounds of weight.
The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado on the other hand has two powertrain options. The base model is equipped with an inline-4 engine with only 200 horsepower output that is also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that allows it to pull 7,000 pounds behind it. The other engine is a V6 with 308 horsepower output and maximum of 7,700 pounds towing capability.
Safety Is A Pickup's Armor
In a report from The Car Connection, it was mentioned that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline outshines the 2017 Colorado in terms of safety. It was stated that in the recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) event, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline was able to earn the Top Safety Pick+ award while the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado only managed to get a four-star rating.
Reports state that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $29,475 and maxes out north of $43,000 with all features loaded. The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado starts at $20,055 and similar to the Ridgeline, it also has a top price of more than $40,000 with all features on board.
Both pickups have their strengths and leave no gap for weaknesses. The Chevrolet has more power but the Ridgeline has better armor. There is not much difference in price as both maxes out in the $40,000 range. At this point, the winner boils down to which the consumers will drive out of the dealership.
