Honda: New Ridgeline Pickup Set to Debut in Few Years

December 12, 2013

An all-new Honda Ridgeline pickup truck will come to market in less than two years, according to Honda. And production of the current Ridgeline — built exclusively by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama LLC in Lincoln, Ala. — will conclude in mid-2014.

Like the first-generation model that earned 2006 North American Truck of the Year and Motor Trend Truck of the Year honors after its fall 2005 debut, the next-generation Ridgeline is being designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas Inc. at its Los Angeles and Ohio R&D centers, says Honda.

The Honda Ridgeline features a spacious five-passenger cabin, smooth ride and handling and half-ton truck capability. Built on a closed-box unibody platform, the Ridgeline introduced new features to the pickup segment, such as its large In-Bed Trunk and dual-action tailgate, according to Honda.

"The next generation Ridgeline will build on Honda's role in creating new value with a new take on advancing form and function in the truck segment," said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda Motor Co. Inc. "With a clear path forward, Ridgeline will play an even more important role in our future product portfolio and strengthen an already class-leading lineup of light trucks."
