2019 Honda Ridgeline Receives IIHS Top Safety Pick Rating

2019 Honda Ridgeline IIHS Top Safety Pick

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck that manages to stand out from its segment, especially when it comes to safety. This truck was recently named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick when it is equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, making it the only pickup truck to earn this rating from the IIHS.*

 

Along with this safety rating, the Ridgeline also earned the top “Superior” rating from the IIHS for its available Collision Mitigation Braking System™. This system applies the brakes when a potential collision is detected on the road ahead and is part of the larger Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies.

 

The Honda Sensing® package comes standard on the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition Models. It includes features like Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

 

The Ridgeline is the seventh Honda model to be recognized by the IIHS. Along with this pickup truck, the 2019 Accord, CR-V, HR-V, Pilot, and Odyssey all received the IIHS Top Safety Pick title. The Insight was awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ title. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also given all 2019 Honda models that have been tested so far, including the Ridgeline, its top five-star overall vehicle score.

Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day Joke Brings Back ’90s Nostalgia

Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day

 

On the first of every April, people across the country get up to some major hijinks, thanks to April Fool’s Day. This year, Honda was no exception. The Japanese carmaker got into the April Fool’s Day spirit this year by posting about the brand-new Pastport trim for the 2019 Passport — an entirely fictitious model, but one that we really, really wish were true.

 

The fictional Pastport trim is a ’90s-inspired version of the Passport, which features a throwback interior that highlights popular ’90s features, including automatic windows, a cassette player, and plush micro-fiber seats. It even has a mount for your beeper!

 

“From TV reboots to fashion, the ’90s are making a huge comeback, and we saw an opportunity at Honda for consumers who want uniqueness and simplicity, so we decided to reach back and bring the Pastport to market this spring,” said Zack Tanner, historical innovations manager for Honda. “We think the new Pastport is all that and a bag of chips.”

 

While this nostalgic trim level isn’t actually available, you can come in to Avery Greene Honda to check out the actual Passport. This ruggedly handsome SUV is the newest addition to Honda’s SUV lineup. It comes with an available all-wheel-drive system, standard safety technologies, ample power, and an abundance of interior space to make it a solid choice in its segment.
