Default Ridgeline: 2006 Honda Ridgeline Is First Ever Four-Door Truck to Earn Top Government Crash Test Rati

The 2006 Honda Ridgeline has earned a
5-Star safety rating for both frontal and side impact crash test performance
from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), American
Honda Motor Co., announced today. The Ridgeline, Honda's first truck,
is the first ever 4-door pickup to earn the government's highest crash
test safety rating.

Honda has six vehicles - more than any other vehicle brand - that
achieve a top rating for both frontal and side impacts under the federal government's
NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) program.

"Consumers don't want to sacrifice safety for performance, functionality
or fuel efficiency," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American
Honda. " The Ridgeline's unique design allows us to deliver on all
fronts with great safety, class leading fuel economy and tremendous truck capability
along with a fun-to-drive element unmatched in the pickup truck segment.

Completely new for the 2006 model year, the Ridgeline's integrated full-frame
body structure is designed to help protect its occupants while reducing the
effect of crash energy on opposing vehicles for improved compatibility with
smaller vehicles. The Ridgeline, like most Honda vehicles sold today, is also
equipped with an array of pedestrian safety features such as breakaway windshield
wiper pivots; and energy-absorbing hood structure and hinges.

In keeping with Honda's industry-leading "Safety for Everyone"
initiative, all Ridgeline model come equipped with a comprehensive list of advanced
safety features including dual-stage, dual-threshold front airbags; Vehicle
Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control; side curtain airbags with rollover
sensor; driver's and front passenger's side airbags (passenger side
airbag with Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) to prevent airbag deployment
when a child or small stature adult is in the deployment path); anti-lock brakes;
and electronic brake assist.
