2016 Chevrolet Silverado

Allow us to introduce you to one of the season’s hottest new trucks, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Not only does the Ridgeline run on a massively powerful engine capable of guaranteeing epic amounts of horsepower and excellent efficiency, but it also gives you a brand new exterior makeover as well as a collection top-notch safety devices. But in order to see just how distinctive this new truck is, simply compare it to one of its rivals: the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.

Engine Power

First, there’s the ample power and impressive rates of fuel efficiency in the 2017 Honda Ridgeline:

  • The 2017 Honda Ridgeline –The Ridgeline runs on a 3.5L V-6 aluminum-alloy engine with Variable Cylinder Management and a 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC valve train that can produce 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque while also towing 5,000 pounds. Likewise, when equipped with two-wheel-drive it can get 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway, and outfitted with all-wheel-drive, it gives you 18 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway.*
  • The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado – To be sure, the Silverado is also a powerful truck: powered by a Vortec 6.0L Variable Valve Timing V8 SFI engine, it can get 360 hp and produce 380 lb-ft of torque. However, its maximum payload is only 3,534 pounds, and it can only get 18 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway.

Design

Second, there’s the new design of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, which adds two especially exciting new perks to an already well-constructed truck:

  • The 2017 Honda Ridgeline – First, the Ridgeline comes with a new tailgate that can fold down down and open sideways. What this means is that you can slide all your gear into the truck’s bed without ever having to worry about damaging the tailgate. At the same time, the Ridgeline features an in-bed trunk in the back of the truck’s bed, which gives you even more storage space but also makes it possible for you to keep sodas and beers cold in the back of your truck during your next tailgate party.
  • The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado – Yes, the Silverado gives you a number of exterior designs to choose from—a (1) Regular Cab and Long Box; (2) a Double Cab and Standard Box; a (3) Double Cab and Long Box; a (4) Crew Cab and Standard Box; and (5) a Crew Cab and Long Box—but it offers neither a side-opening tailgate nor an in-bed trunk.

Safety Systems

Finally, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is outfitted with a bevy of the latest safety devices:

  • The 2017 Honda Ridgeline – The Ridgeline gives drivers Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution, Anti-Lock Braking System, Brake Assist, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and a Forward Collision Warning.
  • The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado – For sure, the Silverado also comes with some solid safety features—Forward Collision Alert, for example, as well as Lane Departure Warning and a Rear Vision Camera—but not the precise arrangement or high quality (especially in relation to price) delivered by the Ridgeline.
