Colorado vs. Ridgeline: Which Compact Pickup Should You Choose?

While the Honda Ridgeline and the Chevrolet Colorado are both exceptional compact pickup trucks and share many similarities, they will appeal to different buyers.

The Honda Ridgeline could be in a class of its own. Few trucks deliver like the Ridgeline in terms of interior design, features, cabin tech, and welcome extras for tailgaters. The Ridgeline was fully redesigned for 2017, and it is the first new model since the 2014 model year.

The Colorado, our 2017 Best Compact Truck for the Money, offers unparalleled value on top of being a class leader in towing and hauling. The Colorado returned to the market in 2015, following a three-year hiatus. The 2017 Colorado comes with a newly available V6 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, and it now comes standard with GM's Teen Driver safety feature.

Choosing between these two all-stars truly comes down to assessing what you need and want in your compact pickup truck. Let’s take a look at the details, to help you make an educated choice.
