Standard Performance

In many cases, improved fuel economy comes at the sacrifice of power, but through state-of-the-art engineering, Honda has reversed that trend.

  • The base trim Tacoma features a 2.7L four-cylinder engine that outputs 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • All trim levels of the Ridgeline include a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque.

That’s a huge improvement in performance, and if you’re hauling or towing around College Place, you’ll appreciate that kind of increased capability.
