The 2019 Honda Ridgeline in Clear Lake vs The Chevy Colorado

It’s pickup versus pickup in this comparison article, so which one will prove to be the best? It mostly depends on the qualities you find most important in a truck. Do you favor one with convenient ergonomic features, or care more about the structure and durability? Don’t make it a choice between elements; make it a choice between TRUCKS, and chose right with the 2019 Honda Ridgeline in Clear Lake!

Stronger Structure

The type of chassis a vehicle has can make or break the whole driving experience. With the Ridgeline, the unibody construction makes the frame much stiffer than the Colorado, which contributes to better handling with fewer body squeaks and rattles. The Ridgeline also utilizes computer-generated active noise canceling technology, to help remove any vibrations that emerge from the passenger compartment. For more of a handling advantage, this Honda pickup is over a foot shorter than the Colorado making it easier to handle and maneuver into tight parking spaces.

Convenience That’s Anything But Conventional

It’s the smaller things that genuinely make a difference in our day-to-day life, and the Ridgeline contributes to the convenience by having standard automatic power windows in the front that fully extend or recceed with just a single touch of the button. And if you happen to forget about your windows once you exit the truck, the driver can close all of them at the outside door handle, or by using a keyless remote. The Colorado’s passenger windows can’t perform like the Ridgeline’s, and they can only be operated from inside the vehicle while it is on. If you ever find yourself needing to lend out your Ridgeline, you won’t need to worry about re-adjusting your seat back to its perfect position in the RTL-E and Black Edition. These two models have memory seats and mirrors that can be programmed to your customized setting. And when you pair it with the easy entry system that glides the driver’s seat back upon opening the door, you’ve got the most welcoming pickup ever!

Safety

Yes, it is true the trucks have a more significant safety advantage over most other vehicles, but that doesn’t mean every truck out there is perfect when it comes to safety features. The Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition go one step further than the Colorado with its Collision Mitigation Braking System. This system detects possible collisions and will apply the brakes at full force if the driver doesn’t react. For even more protection in the passenger compartment, the Ridgeline uses a safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame to provide extra impact protection around the passenger compartment in the case of side impact.
