4 Things We Know About the All-New 2017 Honda Ridgeline
Truck enthusiasts have been awaiting news on the all-new Ridgeline since the model ceased production with the 2014 model. At SEMA this year we got a peek at the future of the full size truck with the debut of the Ridgeline Baja Race Truck.
It doesn’t look like the Pilot. Previous Ridgeline models took design cues from the brands hot selling SUV (or was it the other way around). This design go-round, the truck will surely look more truck-like with the Baja edition showcasing a structure that fits in closer with Toyota models than the F-150.
We know what parts of the Baja Race Truck will carry over to the new on-the-road model. Honda brags that, “Key design cues drawn from the highly anticipated 2017 Honda Ridgeline can be seen in the front fascia, hood, roof, bed and side profile.”
The all-new Ridgeline will be made in the United States. Like the original, the next-generation Ridgeline has been designed and developed in North America by Honda R&D Americas and will be produced by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama.
We’ll know more soon. Honda will introduce an all-new, second-generation Ridgeline truck in the first half of 2016.
