2017 Honda Ridgeline Production Kicks Off

Mass production of the redesigned 2017 Honda Ridgeline midsize pickup truck has begun at the brand’s manufacturing plant in Alabama.

The Ridgeline is slated to go on sale soon at Honda dealerships in the U.S. and marks the return of Honda to the midsize pickup truck segment. Fully redesigned, the Ridgeline now features a fresh look, a revised 3.5-liter V6, an entirely new interior, torque vectoring all-wheel drive and its staple features; a dual-hinged tailgate and a trunk in the bed.

Some other noteworthy features on the truck include an in-bed audio system and Honda’s full suite of active safety technology that includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and more.

The Ridgeline will be built alongside the Honda Pilot, Odyssey and Acura MDX.

    Based on the Ridgeline going into production today, when can we expect that it will be available to purchase? Is there a typical period from production start to first sale?
