There are plenty of practical reasons to get a mid-size pick-up truck, but there's no need to go bare bones with features. The marketplace has plenty of well-equipped mid-size pick-up trucks, but two outstanding examples are the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. Both offer incredible innovations, superior safety, top efficiency, and-of course-tons of power. See how these two top contenders stack up on all of the factors that matter most.

Performance and Efficiency

Both the Ridgeline and Silverado 1500 have similar V6 engines with comparable power. The Ridgeline, however, does offer some advantages with a standard rear stabilizer bar and a turning diameter that's nearly three feet tighter than the Silverado 1500's turning diameter.

The Ridgeline clearly breaks ahead in efficiency. The Ridgeline garnered an "Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle" rating, compared to the Silverado 1500's "Low Emissions Vehicle" rating. The Ridgeline offers a much better fuel economy than the Silverado 1500, which already has excellent efficiency for a powerful pick-up truck. The Ridgeline delivers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 city/26 highway/22 combined*, compared to the Silverado 1500's 18 city/24 highway/20 combined fuel economy.

Innovations and Design

When it comes to cabin configurations, the Silverado 1500 stays the course and relies on a more traditional design. The Ridgeline manages to really push the envelope to create a more modern and functional space. Innovative storage advantages that the Ridgeline has and the Silverado lacks include console storage, locking bed storage, overhead console storage, seatback storage, and standard under-seat storage. The Ridgeline also offers standard tow hooks, privacy glass, power side mirrors, and trailer hitch-a few very useful items that cost extra in the Silverado 1500.

The Ridgeline also has a few added tech tricks up its sleeve. Enjoy a stereo system with anti-theft and MP3 capability, keyless entry, voice-activated audio controls, multi-function remote, and Bluetooth connectivity-all of which come standard in the Ridgeline. To get comparable features in the Silverado 1500, you'll need to pay extra.

Comfort

While the Silverado 1500 and Ridgeline are both much more comfortable than the pick-up trucks of the past, the Ridgeline offers many different advantages that will be much appreciated after a long drive or a hard day's work. Enjoy plenty of standard comforts: a rearview camera, telescopic steering column, driver's side vanity mirror, floor mats, rear window defroster, height-adjustable front seating, and more. These all are either unavailable or cost extra in the Silverado 1500.
