Next-Generation Honda Ridgeline Teased

Honda is dribbling out some information concerning the next-generation Ridgeline, announcing that the new truck will “come to market in less than two years.”

The current Ridgeline, which is built exclusively in Lincoln, Alabama, will conclude production in mid-2014 to make way for the new truck. The Ridgeline was introduced in the 2006 model year, and is still the only pickup truck to use a closed-box unibody platform.

A sketch of the next-generation Ridgeline was also released by the brand, and shows off the new truck’s new square style.

The Ridgeline has never sold in huge numbers, despite being lauded as the 2006 North American truck of the year. The best month ever for the Ridgeline saw 1853 units moved, though sales are up by 29 percent in 2013 year-to-date thanks in part to a new top of the line trim level.

    Can’t wait for the reveal of this. Hopefully the next generation features BOF, choices in cabs, and choices in engines.

    I checked out a Ridgeline special model all black and it was well optioned for $30k with discounts on autotrader of up to $3500. The poor EPA rating on this 4 cyl was as bad as my 6cyl Jeep Commander at 15 mpg combined and only 20 highway. If the numbers grow over 30 mpg I may just consider one and sell my Jeep.

    Do we need another truck – Honda hasn’t invested in their Ridgeline like others have and I will not buy another Honda truck – this get into the market and get out of the market Ridgeline, NSX type of investing is pathetic. The current truck is comfortable and has a cool tailgate and trunk but it lacks most of the features that even a stripped down full size truck would have today. So another Ridgeline – ho hum… Whatever.
