    Light-duty pickup trucks are commanding pieces of machinery that are just powerful enough to take the heavy loads off our shoulders, but casual enough to fit into our everyday lifestyles. Out of all the different models though, finding the best match can be a bit of a chore. So let’s take a closer look at two stunning examples of light-duty trucks that are taking 2019 by storm, the 2019 Chevy Silverado vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline.

    The 2019 Chevy Silverado can be best described as the everyday hard worker. Balanced and at the peak of nearly every category this model will have no problem getting the job done by day and enjoying some relaxing fun by night. The starting price of the 2019 Silverado is shockingly low for all it offers with its long list of standard capabilities, and at its best, there are few others in its class that can match its raw potential. In short, everyday reliability has never been so clearly displayed in a single pickup truck.

    The 2019 Honda Ridgeline provides a drive that is almost on par with an SUV when it comes to comfort and handling, but in this case, with great handling comes little power. Honestly speaking the 2019 Ridgeline just doesn’t have the same passion for power as models such as the Silverado, due to the way its body is designed. This discrepancy is most easily seen in towing potential. Overall, it’s convenient and comfortable, but so is the 2019 Silverado, and that has the added power and affordability.

    Neither model is a bad choice, but generally only one can gain that coveted spot as your road partner. While the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is brilliant on its own, when compared side by side to the 2019 Chevy Silverado it can’t stand up to the facts.

  • Design

    When it comes to the attitude of 2019 Chevy Silverado there is no denying it has a natural command of the road. Measuring to be 230-241″ L x 81″ W x 75-78″ H, the 2019 Silverado is big enough to show gain attention but small enough to fit into any life smoothly. This model is a seamless balance of eye-catching boldness and everyday adaptability. Basically put, no matter where you go it can make a strong impression without giving on an obnoxious sense of being over-the-top. Anyone looking for an everyday truck will always find their ideal partner with the 2019 Chevy Silverado.

    2019 Honda Ridgeline

    The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is much smaller than the 2019 Silverado. Measuring to be only 210″ L x 79″ W x 70-71″ H, this model was never bred for a commanding presence, but it does have a touch of that bold truck attitude that will get drivers a few looks. It’s more compact by design, and as such, it gains mobility but lacks tangible and intangible strength. Fortunately though, some of the sharper exterior features such as the headlights, as well as the comfort of the interior, can truly win drivers who don’t require much power.

  • Performance

    The force of the 2019 Chevy Silverado is practically at the top of its class. As far as light-duty pickup trucks go, this model offers it all. With a wide selection of powertrain options, there is not a driver the 2019 Silverado won’t be able to please.

    For those looking for an affordable option with a reliable power output, the standard engine option is ideal. The standard engine comes with the lowest trim level including the 2019 Silverado Work truck. This option is a 4.3L V6 engine with 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. For not a cent extra this engine is a stunning example wanting the best, but needing nothing more than the basics.

    Moving up to the most common option is a 5.3L V8 engine which produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This comes standard with nearly every level beyond the basic Work Truck, and is sure to inspire drivers with its powerfully balanced potential.

    If you want to go for the best and more forceful option though you will have to invest in one of the higher trims such as the 2019 Silverado LTZ or the top-of-the-line High Country. These trim levels grant drivers’ access to the 6.2L V8 engine 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque paired with a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. On top of all that it offers dynamic fuel management and the top towing potential of 12,500 pounds depending on the equipment you have. It is the most expensive option, but it is worth it to awaken the full force of the Silverado.

    Another alternative engine options include is a 2.7L turbo engine with 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Silverado also offers active or dynamic fuel management, as well as 2WD or 4WD. This means that drivers everywhere can get a 2019 Silverado that can match any or every road.

    2019 Honda Ridgeline


    The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is highly lacking when it comes to force. With only one engine options there isn’t much of an option at all, and those who want this model will be forced into one box. The engine for the 2019 Ridgeline is a simple 3.5L V6 with 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque paired with a 6-speed automatic. With up to 5,000 pounds of towing capability, the 2019 Ridgeline is great for tiny hauls but lacks the raw potential to really get things moving. This option is not only less powerful than even the standard 2019 Silverado, but it also cost more.

    Positives of the 2019 Ridgeline is that it handles beautifully and has a high EPA rating of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with FWD. You would almost think you were driving an SUV. Drivers looking for something a more compact will generally find this to be a convenient option.

    The first is the 2019 Ridgeline’s rear bed with a lockable storage compartment. This feature is ideal for those looking to find a hidden and secure place for large valuables or items too grimy for the cabin.

This makes the 2019 Ridgeline an ideal tailgating partner.

    The second is the brilliant traction management. The highlight of the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is its ability to handle itself well, and this push-button system elevates that even further.

    Overall, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline is extremely low on power but high on functionality and entertaining features.
