A brief bit of seat time in Honda’s Baja bad ass: The Unlimited Ridgeline

We thought we were just there to watch… and then Honda let us jump in the driver’s seat of this rad race truck! We got invited out to a test day with the Honda off-road racing team led by Jeff Procter.

The vehicle? Honda’s Unlimited Ridgeline, which was being prepped to take on the Baja 1000. Competing in Class 7, the Unlimited Ridgeline is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine.

There’s a sequential gearbox, a ton of travel, 37-inch tires, and awesome noise. I didn’t know I was going to get to drive the truck. That’s why we only have a handful of camera angles.

But hopefully this gives you a brief peek at what it’s like to pilot such a bad-ass rig.
