Honda Ridgeline Videos

The 2006 Honda Ridgeline made its debut at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. We asked Gary Flint (as the Large Project Leader, he carried overall responsibility for the development of the Ridgeline) to tell us about the Ridgeline's innovative features and overall design criteria. We would like to thank him for obliging our request and especially for dedicating nearly an hour of his time during the busy press day to go on camera telling us all about his project.

NOTE: The video clips you will see below were entirely unscripted and done "on the fly". We did our best to edit and compose the clips in an organized manner, but the flow (and my camerawork) are a little bit scattershot. The quantity and quality of information that is presented within these clips are the real points of interest.
