With just a few days to go, automakers from around the world have been revealing their lineups for this year’s SEMA show. And Honda is among the latest.
Perhaps the most intriguing of the vehicles that the Japanese automaker has lined up for this year’s tuner expo is called the Honda Rugged Open Air Vehicle Concept, ostensibly taking the form of a Jeep Wrangler or Land Rover Defender-like off-roader.
Unfortunately, Honda isn’t telling us much more about “this unique concept vehicle,” but it has detailed the rest of its SEMA slate.
One is this rather splendid camper truck. The Ridgeline Overland Project is based on the Black Edition of Honda’s pickup truck, but features a Roof Nest pop-up top along with a slate of off-road equipment to let you sleep under the stars regardless of the proximity of your chosen camp site to paved roads. Developed with Jsport Performance Accessories, it features skid plates, off-road tires, a leveling kit, side steps, equipment racks, and even an onboard generator. What’s more, Honda says the Ridgeline Overland will “soon be available for purchase.”
Also on display will be the First Honda pedal car (styled after the Project 2&4 concept), a 2019 Insight sporting a range of accessories, a quintet of motorcycles, and a number of racers, including an F3 Americas single-seater, the Pilot that competed in this year’s Rebelle Rally, and two Civic Type Rs: one from the Pirelli World Challenge and another that ran in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
You can check out some of them in the gallery below, but we’ll have to wait until Honda’s press conference on Tuesday to see the Rugger Open Air concept.
