All Terrain Concept Ridgeline

Torrance, Calif. October 31, 2005

The All Terrain Concept Ridgeline project from American Honda explores the off-road possibilities of the new 2006 Ridgeline pickup. A prototype spring and strut configuration increases ground clearance 1.5 in. above stock height. BF Goodrich T/A All Terrain tires on black chrome 17-in. wheels optimize off-road grip. The exterior has been modified with refinished Honda Accessory lower trim with black chrome accents, grille with black chrome frame, fender flares and side protectors finished in matte gunmetal metallic. The bed is equipped with a Honda Accessory rail system, which sports a prototype cargo cross with fork attachments for two Montague mountain bikes, and a rail-mounted toolbox. The interior is refinished with natural brown semi-Anline leather with wool and suede accents, while copper accents adorn switchgear, door handles and seats.
