Honda has recently announced its plans to end production of the Ridgeline in mid-2014.
Despite going on a break, an all-new Ridgeline will be introduced within two years. The company declined to give further details about the same but confirmed that the model will be designed and developed in the United States.
Honda also released a teaser image that shows that the truck will come with an aerodynamic design with a rounded front fascia and a steeply raked windscreen. Also can be seen is a more conventional bed and an upright C-pillar.
According to senior vice president of automobile operations at American Honda Motor Company Michael Accavitti, 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. He further stated that with a clear path forward, Ridgeline will play an all the more important role in their future product portfolio and strengthen an already class-leading lineup of light trucks.
Expect further details to be revealed soon about the truck but from the image it looks pretty good.
