  • Honda Ridgeline


    The Honda Ridgeline is a Sport Utility Truck (SUT) by American Honda Motor Company, Inc. and is categorized by some as a lifestyle pickup. The Ridgeline is one of only two trucks currently produced by the Honda Motor Company—the second being the Honda Acty mini-truck. This SUT is built using a unibody frame, a transverse-mounted engine, four-wheel independent suspension, and is only offered in a crew-cab/short-box configuration with one powertrain. Honda also built unique features into the Ridgeline not found in other mid-size trucks, such as: Industry's first In-Bed Trunk Dual-action tailgate Flat truck bed Flat cabin floor All-wheel driveContrary to some media reporting, Honda's publications state that the first generation (Gen1) (2006–2014) Ridgeline was a uniquely engineered vehicle with 7% of its components shared with other Honda vehicles. Its powertrain resembled the one used in the Gen1 (2000–2006) Acura MDX but was modified for heavier hauling and towing duties. The second generation (Gen2) (2017–present) Ridgeline took a different approach sharing a design with the third generation (Gen3) (2016–present) Honda Pilot.

  • Pontiac


    Pontiac was a car brand that was owned, made, and sold by General Motors. Introduced as a companion make for GM's more expensive line of Oakland automobiles, Pontiac overtook Oakland in popularity and supplanted its parent brand entirely by 1933. Sold in the United States, Canada, and Mexico by GM, Pontiac was advertised as the performance division of General Motors from the 1960s onward. Amid late 2000s financial problems and restructuring efforts, GM announced in 2008 it would follow the same path with Pontiac as it had with Oldsmobile in 2004 and discontinued manufacturing and marketing vehicles under that brand by the end of 2010. The last Pontiac badged cars were built in December 2009, with one final vehicle in January, 2010. Franchise agreements for Pontiac dealers expired October 31, 2010, leaving GM to focus on its four remaining North American brands: Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC.

  • Chrysler Turbine Car


    The Chrysler Turbine Car is an automobile powered by a turbine engine which was produced by Chrysler from 1963 to 1964. Its body was made by the Italian design studio Ghia, and Chrysler completed its assembly in Detroit. The Chrysler turbine engine program that produced the Turbine Car began during the late 1930s, and created multiple prototypes that successfully completed numerous long-distance trips in the 1950s and early 1960s. The A-831 engines that powered the Ghia-designed Turbine Car could operate on many different fuels, required less maintenance, and lasted longer than conventional piston engines, although they were much more expensive to produce. A total of 55 cars were built: five prototypes and a limited run of 50 cars for a public user program. The car's design was created by Elwood Engel and the Chrysler studios. A two-door hardtop coupe, it featured power brakes, power steering, and a TorqueFlite transmission, and was coated with a metallic, root beer-colored paint known as "turbine bronze".
