Honda Steals 2018 SEMA Show With Ridgeline Concept: Video

  02-honda-rugged-open-air-vehicle-concept

In this video, we take a slow walk around one of the most interesting concept vehicles at the recent 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show: the Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle. It basically looks like huge backcountry side-by-side; however, all the parts inside and underneath are Ridgeline parts. The body and bed designs are straight from Honda's Pioneer 1000 lineup of personal work and play open-cab utility vehicles. Although it doesn't have a tilt dump bed or convertible rear-seat setup, the ROAV does offer a fully Rhino-lined interior and Civic Type R seats and belts.

We lobbied Honda execs pretty hard to let us take a few laps in the buggy in the desert, but they said they'd get back to us. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, here's a closer look.

Honda steals the show? Really?

Better than the HEEP pickup that FCA wants to sell.

"could eventually make it to production...." Only if you were drinking the kool-aid.

Looks like fun. I drove a Ridgeline for about three years and loved it. Would love to get another one in the near future.

Would make a good sheep herding truck.

Just got back from 10 days in the remote wilderness hunting and camping, not a single Ridgeline was seen.
Maybe Honda can build a competitor, but they haven’t done it yet.

While traveling a few years ago from Washington, DC up to parts of of upstate NY. I never saw a Tacoma or Colorado or Frontier pickup truck towing a trailer. This was passing thru states of Maryland and Pennsylvania 300+ miles. However I did see two 1st Generation Ridgeline trucks separate towing boats on a weekday mourning.
They each probably were going to some nice fishing spot in some part of Pennsylvania.
