Honda has begun production of its fifth-generation 2017 CR-V compact SUV at its the East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio, the automaker has announced.

The CR-V, which was first introduced in 1997, has been built at the plant since 2007. The move makes East Liberty the lead plant for global production of the CR-V, which will add several updates for 2017 including a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine. The engine will be built exclusively at Honda's engine plant in Anna, Ohio.

East Liberty will coordinate CR-V production at 10 plants around the world. In the U.S., the CR-V is also built at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana in Greensburg.

The 2017 CR-V will arrive at dealer lots this winter.
