|TORRANCE, Calif., December 11,
2003 --- American Honda today released a sketch of the Honda SUT Concept
vehicle, scheduled to make its worldwide debut at the North American International
Auto Show in Detroit on January 4, 2004. This new and innovative truck concept
will provide the world with its first glimpse of the direction Honda will
take with a future production sport-utility truck model.
The Honda SUT Concept is a next-generation truck concept designed to meet
the changing tastes of consumers purchasing trucks to accommodate their
active, outdoor-oriented lifestyles. Taking advantage of its unibody underpinnings,
the Honda SUT Concept combines the utility of an open cargo bed with the
interior space and functionality of an SUV and adds traditional Honda strengths
including superior ergonomics, innovative packaging, fun-to-drive character
and legendary durability, quality and reliability.
In keeping with Honda's commitment to environmental and safety leadership,
the Honda SUT Concept also sets a new standard for fuel efficiency, low
emissions and safety performance in the light-duty truck segment.
Additional details of the concept and Honda's future production plans
will be provided at the vehicle's unveiling next month in Detroit.
