Frank Ancona Honda Gears Up for SEMA 2016 & Recaps Honda’s Excitement for 2017 Ridgeline

Honda is gearing up for a big showcase at the 2016 SEMA show with a custom Honda Ridgeline. The SEMA show is one of the top automotive trade shows in the world and takes place annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. At this show, different auto manufacturers will showcase educational seminars, product demonstrations and much more. The trade show is said to draw the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products, as over 60,000 people attended last year’s show.

The decision to showcase a custom Ridgeline at this year’s event was an easy choice, especially with all of the positive feedback the truck has been receiving since its launch a few months ago. Right out of the gate, Car and Driver fell in love with the spacious and comfortable interior, claiming it “embarrasses the competition.” Most recently, the pickup truck was recognized for its superior safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, recently shared a video, discussing tests performed on a series of trucks where the Ridgeline stood out. Overall, the IIHS has provided superior safety ratings for the truck that are well within Honda’s standards of excellence.

Unlike typical trucks, this vehicle is a great everyday mode of transportation that can provide consumers with a multitude of features that are not offered among competing brands, such as Ford and Chevrolet. These features include an in-bed storage compartment with a drain and dual-action tailgate that opens vertically and horizontally to allow for easy loading and finally weatherproof speakers in the bed making this vehicle ideal for tailgating.
