2014 Honda Ridgeline vs 2015 GMC Canyon
While the 2015 model year came and went without a new Honda Ridgeline, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting one for 2016 either, we’re still very happy with the last installment that came in the 2014 model year. We still have some of this model available at Wheaton Honda, as well as the extremely popular midsize GMC Canyon at Don Wheaton, so we thought we’d pit two of our favorite small trucks against one another to show you their differences and advantages by looking at the 2014 Honda Ridgeline vs 2015 GMC Canyon.
Both are incredibly innovative, capable utility trucks with plenty of reasons for you to chose it, and each has their strengths. If you’re looking for a truck that is more of an everyday vehicle, designed to take you to the grocery store or get a job done on the worksite, then the Canyon is for you. If you’re more of an outdoorsy, sporty type, then the Ridgeline is probably the better choice as it was designed with these things in mind.
Differences between the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, 2015 GMC Canyon
Both trucks have plenty of power for their small stature, but if you’re looking for that extra oomph then the Canyon’s extra 55 horsepower might give you what you’re looking for. That extra horsepower also leads to the 2000-pound towing capacity advantage as well, so if you’re going to be hauling a lot of extra loads behind the truck this could be the better option as well. In terms of cargo capacity and payload, however, both trucks are nearly identical.
Where the Honda Ridgeline becomes more interesting is in its innovation. With the only rear liftgate of its kind, lending you the ability to open it down like a regular gate or to the side like a door, it opens all kinds of extra options. It’s the perfect size for you to carry around an ATV or motorcycle or whatever other gear you might need on your trip outdoors. Not to mention, it has a one-of-a-kind look as well.
If either of these trucks interest you, be sure to give their respective dealership a call to schedule a test drive at your earliest convenience. We can also answer any questions you might have on the phone or via email as well, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
