Default Ridgeline: 2006 Honda Ridgeline Wins Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award

The 2006 Honda Ridgeline earned Motor
Trend magazine's prestigious 2006 "Truck of the Year" award,
American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today. The Ridgeline joins the all-new
2006 Honda Civic as this year's recipient of Motor Trend's "Car
of the year" award, marking the first time ever that a manufacturer has
won both honors in the same year.

Since its introduction in March of 2005, the Ridgeline has re-defined the mid-size
truck segment through its innovative and exclusive new features. Designed to
meet the needs of a growing population of consumers purchasing trucks to support
their active, outdoor-oriented lifestyles, the Ridgeline delivers a proportional
mix of overall truck capability, towing performance, ruggedness and value in
a fun-to-drive vehicle built around Honda's standards for reliability,
safety and performance. The Ridgeline was the first-ever 4-door pickup to receive
the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star safety rating,
the highest safety rating possible, for both frontal and side impact crash test
performance. It also had the distinction of achieving the best rollover resistance
rating of any pickup ever tested by NHTSA. All Ridgeline models are equipped
with a long list of standard comfort and convenience features, including the
most comprehensive list of standard safety equipment in its class.

"This certainly validates Honda's unique approach to the truck
segment," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor
Co., Inc. "Winning Truck of the Year with our first attempt is truly remarkable,
and we couldn't be more pleased"

In keeping with Honda's industry-leading 'Safety for Everyone' initiative,
all Ridgeline trucks are equipped with standard anti-lock brakes with Electronic
Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, advanced dual-stage,
dual-threshold driver's and front passenger's Supplemental Restraint System
(SRS) airbags, driver's and front passenger's side airbags (passenger side with
Occupant Position Detection System), two-row side curtain airbags with rollover
sensor, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Standard features on all Ridgeline models include a 247-horsepower VTEC V-6
engine; 5-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission; advanced Variable
Torque Management four-wheel drive system; air conditioning; tilt steering wheel;
power side windows, power sliding rear window and door locks; cruise control;
keyless entry; automatic heated wiper zone; 6-speaker 100-watt audio system
with CD player; 60/40 split lift-up rear seat with under-seat storage; all-weather
floor mats; 5-foot, dent-resistant composite cargo bed with six heavy duty tie
down cleats and 4 bed lights; an 8.5 cubic foot secure, lockable In-Bed Trunk;
and dual-action tailgate.
