The partnership helps Honda to highlight the versatility and functionality of the Honda Ridgeline, said Phil Hruska, manager of media strategy, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.



“Challenging convention is a common thread that the Honda Ridgeline and Adam Savage and his Tested team share,” Hruska tells Marketing Daily. “This partnership gives Honda the opportunity to showcase the Ridgeline’s unique capabilities and features through Tested’s out-of-the-box custom builds, while adding a sense of fun and adventure that resonates with this audience.”

The online series will be shared on as well as Tested’s YouTube channel, which has over 2 million subscribers, and on

The effort is aimed at consumers who are passionate about DIY, camping, fishing and home improvement.

“Honda’s partnership with Adam Savage and Tested is targeting truck and/or SUV intenders who are looking for a versatile vehicle that fits with their active lifestyle, while at the same time offering comfort and technology,” Hruska says.
