The mid sized crossover vehicle known as the Honda Ridgeline is manufactured by Japanese auto stalwarts Honda. The Honda Ridgeline is the first foray of Honda in to the pickup truck market of the United States of America and Canada.
The Honda Ridgeline is constructed in the Canadian town of Alliston, Ontario. That is also where the Acura MDX and the Honda Pilot are constructed.
The Honda Ridgeline was first unveiled in the year 2005 as a 2006 model year vehicle. In the year 2006, the Honda Ridgeline won Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year award.
The Honda Ridgeline is noted for employing a unibody architecture ladder frame chassis. This gives it a lot more bending rigidity and twenty times the torsional rigidity than the standard ladder frame typically employed on such vehicles. This design, in addition to the four wheel independent suspension on the vehicle, effectively creates enough space for Honda to forge the very first pick up truck that boasts a storage area below the bed. In order to assist access to the storage trunk, a dual hinged tailgate is included on the Honda Ridgeline. The bed is integrated in to the body, similar in a way to the Chevrolet Avalanche.
