Thumbs up Newer crash test vids =;-)

..........

I'm impressed with this frontal crash...the freaking windshield didn't even crack !!

And the cabin is well designed to remained intact without being crushed, to protects occupants !

Looks good. Would have liked to see the aftermath interior damage and if any damage to dummies legs, especially the two side hits.

Re: Newer crash test vids =;-)

Very Impressive! Several years ago I was T-Boned in a Ford Ranger at a speed I would guess to be similar to the side impact test.. It rode higher than the Ridgeline. It rolled over a time an a half ending up on the roof. Higher truck with higher center of gravity.

I'm glad to see that the Ridgeline stays lower to the ground and "scoots" rather than rolls. Im not an engineer, but I'd attribute that to a lower center of gravity and a wider stance that the old Ranger.

You're wrong !... The machine shown in 2nd vid is used as a kit to widen the rear door opening by an inch or 2 like leveling kits. ( see 0:40 - 0:48 ) )

as for the alignment machine you'd mentioned...see vid #3

Ridgeline Top Safety Pick. I assume everyone saw this but haven't seen it mentioned here. Maybe I missed it. 2017 Honda Ridgeline Tops Pickup Trucks in Safety by Earning 5-Star Overall Vehicle Rating from NHTSA
