2017 Ridgeline vs. 2016 Colorado: Fuel Economy and Standard Engine
Gas prices in the US right now are low, but there’s no telling what they’ll do in the years to come. That’s why finding a truck with excellent fuel economy is such an important factor in determining your overall cost to own. It’s more than just a starting MSRP; the devil is in the details.
But you have nothing to worry about with the 2017 Honda Ridgeline because the new Honda truck gets excellent fuel economy with its standard 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. On the other hand, the 2016 Chevy Colorado has a pretty disappointing fuel economy even with its standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine.
Chevy Colorado vs. Honda Ridgeline: Standard Features
Speaking of standard features, there’s another major point of difference between the 2016 Chevy Colorado and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Completely redesigned for the 2017 model year, the Honda Ridgeline offers an extensive list of standard features, like the V6 engine.
Other standard features include a foldable rear seat, waterproof trunk storage with a drain, a backup camera, air conditioning, and an AM/FM stereo with MP3 capability and CD player. To compare, the Chevy Colorado’s list of standard features is a bit short and missing quite a few of the features in the Ridgeline base trim, including a CD player and trunk storage.
