American Honda Motor Co., Inc. announced that the 2006 Honda Ridgeline pickup has achieved the best rollover resistance rating of any pickup tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The results were posted on the NHTSA Web site http://www.safercar.gov.
Demonstrating the depth of Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” commitment, the Ridgeline earned industry-best ratings for both
the Static Stability Factor (SSF) and Dynamic Rollover test modes.
Specifically, Ridgeline earned a rating of 1.29 for the SSF test, a higher (better) calculated result than all other pickups tested, and experienced no “tip-up” during the dynamic test.
Earlier this year, Ridgeline, Honda’s first pickup truck, was the
first-ever 4-door pickup to receive NHTSA’s 5-star safety rating, the highest safety rating possible, for both frontal and side impact crash test performance.
Completely new for the 2006 model year, the Ridgeline’s integrated
full-frame body structure also is designed to help protect its occupants while reducing the effect of crash energy on opposing vehicles for improved compatibility with smaller vehicles.
