Honda will unveil a desert race truck at this year’s SEMA Show that will provide a glimpse of the styling direction for its 2017 Ridgeline, which will be the first update to the Honda truck since 2014 (shown).

Honda has a lot going for this year’s 2015 SEMA Show, as it plans to unveil a ton of new products, including race bikes, HR-V project vehicles, but most importantly for us off-roaders the debut of a Ridgeline Desert Race Truck.

As Honda notes in a release announcing the truck, “The Ridgeline Desert Race Truck will offer a first look at the styling direction of the highly anticipated 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup.” This race-inspired version of the Ridgeline also marks Honda’s re-entry into Honda Performance Development (HPD)-powered factory off-road racing.

Honda says it will also display four Honda HR-V project vehicles, built in partnership with several highly creative U.S.-based automotive tuning houses. The refreshed 2016 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupe will also be highlighted in Honda’s 2015 SEMA showcase, along with an accessorized version of the all-new 2016 Honda Civic Sedan and 2016 Honda Pilot.

Honda Powersports and HPD will also showcase many of their wares, including the Pioneer 1000 side-by-side (which will have a first Ride Story on very soon) in matching desert race livery, the Moto GP Race Replica RC213V-S, the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing IndyCar display, and much more.

The Honda press conference will begin at 9:35 a.m. PDT on Nov. 3rd at Booth #24887 in the southeast corner of the Central Hall.
