Default Ridgeline: All-New 2006 Honda Ridgeline Truck Set to Make Nationwide Television Debut During Super B

Honda is debuting its all-new Ridgeline
truck to national television audiences on Sunday, February 6, during the Super
Bowl broadcast when two 30-second spots will run. Honda is using the Super Bowl
to generate mass awareness for its first entry into the mid-size truck market.


The first spot entitled "Peaks" appears at the end of the first
quarter, and the second one, "Buckles," appears at the end of the
third quarter. Both Ridgeline commercials were shot in mid-January on the Big
Island of Hawaii with actor Clancy Brown from the hit HBO series "Carnivale"
performing the voice-over in his first work for Honda.


"Peaks" introduces the Honda Ridgeline and establishes its tough
truck credentials by putting the all-new four-wheel drive truck through its
paces over rugged terrain and large-scale peaks. The spot culminates on top
of a ridge as the voiceover announces, "Above All, It's a Honda."
Special effects company "The Orphanage," also known for its work
on the blockbuster movie "The Day After Tomorrow," enhanced the
dramatic scenery in the opening sequence.


"Buckles" also builds on the Ridgeline's tough truck credentials
while demonstrating the vehicle's unique innovations that include an industry
first In-Bed Trunk™ and integrated truck frame. The truck ends up on a
ridge as the final line, "Above all, it's a Honda," is delivered.


Additional features of the Ridgeline include a 255-horsepower V-6 engine, a
half-ton bed payload capacity, a dual action tailgate that swings down or to
the side, a four-wheel independent suspension and a 5,000 lb. towing capacity.
The four-door truck offers interior space similar to a full-size truck in a
garage-friendly mid-size exterior package along with top-class fuel economy
and ultra-low emissions. Extensive safety features include a full array of airbags
including side curtain airbags as standard equipment, vehicle stability assist,
a vehicle-to-vehicle compatibility design and a pedestrian safety design.


Additional media information and photography of the 2006 Honda Ridgeline is
available at www.hondanews.com. Consumer information regarding the Ridgeline
is available at www.hondacars.com. A broadcast quality tape of Honda's
Ridgeline Super Bowl commercials is available to interested broadcast media.
