The Honda Ridgeline was on display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this year. Ridgeline combines the functionality of a truck with an interior that features upscale amenities, seating for 5 and up to 109 cu. ft. of interior space. With 280 hp, an available intelligent AWD system and unit-body construction, the Honda Ridgeline is always raring to go, no matter the terrain.

One of the largest media events in North America, the NAIAS is the only auto show in the United States to earn an annual distinguished sanction of the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d’Automobiles (OICA), the Paris-based alliance of automotive trade associations and manufacturers from around the world.
