Drivers shopping for a mid-size pickup truck have a number of diverse options, including the 2018 Honda Ridgeline and 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. While these two pickups compete in the mid-size truck segment, they have more differences than similarities, as Honda's Ridgeline is highly refined and high-tech, while the Colorado is a bit more rugged and less refined. Here at DCH Paramus Honda, we invite pickup truck shoppers to compare Honda's 2018 Ridgeline with any other pickup truck available, including the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. Let's review some of the key differences between these two varied mid-size truck options.
Unlike most other mid-size pickup trucks, the 2018 Honda Ridgline is offered with a suite of advanced driver-assist technologies. Honda calls its system Honda Sensing, and includes features like Adaptive Cruise Control and its Collision Mitigation Braking System in the package, as well as a Lane Keeping Assist System and more. While the 2018 Colorado from Chevrolet is offered with features like a blind spot monitor and other driver-assist systems, its available safety features are not quite as advanced as what the 2018 Ridgeline affords.
Going beyond the safety features available on these two powerful mid-size pickup trucks, let's take a look at their respective safety ratings to determine which offers drivers and passengers greater peace of mind in the event of a collision.

With their similar starting prices, you may expect that the 2018 Honda Ridgeline RT and 2018 Chevrolet Colorado WT come comparably equipped. Well, you are in for a bit of a surprise, since the 2018 Ridgeline comes standard-equipped with some key features not offered on the 2018 Colorado base model. For one, only the Ridgeline gets a 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat in standard trim, along with lockable bed storage, and overhead console storage area and seatback storage. These added features of the 2018 Ridgeline help deliver the versatility and flexibility that make the Honda pickup a great alternative to your typical mid-size truck.
