Default Ridgeline: 2006 Honda Ridgeline Truck Pricing Starts at $27,700 Well-Equipped

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today announced
pricing for the all-new Honda Ridgeline truck, scheduled to make its debut
at Honda dealerships nationwide on March 1. The 2006 Ridgeline will be available
in three trim levels starting with the well equipped RT, the fully featured
RTS
and the luxury-oriented RTL. Prices will range from $27,700 for the RT up to
$31,490 for the RTL. RTL models may also be equipped with a Moonroof, XM Satellite
Radio and Honda's satellite-linked Navigation System with Advanced Voice
Recognition.


"Honda is entering the truck market with a product that delivers a combination
of performance, features, value and refinement unique in the truck segment," said
Dick Colliver, executive vice president of American Honda. "The Ridgeline
has all the utility of a half-ton truck while maintaining the fundamental Honda
qualities of being fun-to-drive, environmentally responsible and safe, with
characteristic Honda dependability, quality and reliability."


All Ridgeline
models will come with a long list of standard comfort and convenience features
including the most comprehensive list of standard safety
equipment
in its class. 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 Detection System), two-row side curtain airbags
with rollover sensor and a tire pressure monitoring system.


Additional standard
features on all Ridgeline models include a 255-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 underseat storage; all-weather
floor mats; 5-foot 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. All models also come equipped ready to tow with standard transmission
and oil
coolers, heavy duty brakes, dual radiator fans, an exclusive fresh air intake
system for improved towing performance in hot weather conditions, and pre-wiring
for 4- and 7-pin trailer hook up.


The Ridgeline RTS adds alloy wheels, a seven-speaker
160-watt audio system with subwoofer and six-disc, in-dash audio system with
steering wheel controls,
dual
zone automatic climate control and an eight-way power driver's seat.


The Ridgeline RTL adds leather seating surfaces, HomeLink® remote system,
an interior compass in the rearview mirror and heated front seats and an available
power moonroof. Models with the power moonroof are equipped with standard XM® Satellite
Radio and are available with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System.


The
mid-size Ridgeline introduces a number of innovative and exclusive new features
to the half-ton truck segment including a secure, lockable In-Bed
Trunk with
room enough to store a 72-quart cooler, three sets of golf bags or other bulky
items under the pickup bed; a dual action tailgate that allows for easy loading
and unloading of the In-Bed Trunk and truck bed; and the segment's first
fully independent four-wheel suspension. Its unique body architecture, featuring
two fully-boxed longitudinal frame rails and seven high strength steel cross
members in a unitized body construction, delivers vastly superior body rigidity
and provides the foundation for the Ridgeline's spacious interior cabin
and bed, outstanding safety performance and class-leading ride and handling
performance.
