Torrance, California – American Honda Motor Company has 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 Ridgeline earned industry-best ratings for both the Static Stability Factor (SSF) and Dynamic Rollover test modes, and earned a rating of 1.29 for the SSF, a better calculated result than all other pickups tested. It also experienced no “tip-up” during the dynamic test.
Earlier this year, the Ridgeline, Honda’s first pickup truck, was the first-ever four-door pickup to receive NHTSA’s five-star crash test rating, the highest safety rating possible, for both frontal and side impact crash test performance.
