Chevy is one of the biggest names in the world of modern pickup trucks, but many are starting to wonder if they deserve the reputation they’ve acquired. The 2016 Chevy Colorado is a popular choice among drivers who have yet to question convention, but how does it really stack up against an up-and-coming competitor like the 2017 Honda Ridgeline? As it turns out, the Ridgeline RT offers drivers a high-end suite of standard features unlike anything you can find on the comparably priced Colorado 4WD WT.
Work Hard and Play Hard with Honda
No matter what you’re looking for out of your new pickup, we think it’s clear that the Ridgeline offers options that are at least one step above what’s available in the Colorado. The Ridgeline was built to help drivers balance work and leisure, and its comfort and convenience features will let you do just that! Over and above the Colorado 4WD WT, the Ridgeline RT comes standard with voice-activated audio controls, steering wheel audio controls, map lights, a multi-function remote, and MP3-playing capability. Here, you’re also going to get tons of convenient storage options that you won’t find in the Colorado. These include armrest storage, overhead console storage, seatback storage, and a 7.3-cubic-foot storage space that rests beneath the floor of the Ridgeline’s bed.
If all of the Ridgeline’s standard features sound like expensive indulgences, then you’re in for a surprise: The 2017 Ridgeline is actually more affordable than the Colorado over both the short and long term! Ridgeline 2WD RT models are priced at $29,475 MSRP*, which easily beats out the Colorado’s $33,035 MSRP. For even more savings, consider the Ridgeline 2WD RT’s EPA-estimated 19 city mpg/26 highway mpg** vs. the Colorado’s 17 city mpg/24 highway mpg fuel economy.
Time for a Test Drive
If you like the sound of the Ridgeline’s offerings, then there’s no better time to stop by a Hampton Roads Honda Dealers location for a test drive. Once you’ve seen how the 2017 Honda Ridgeline handles, we’re sure you’ll agree that the 2016 Chevy Colorado just can’t keep up!
