Sales of the Honda Ridgeline have had a strong momentum in 2013 with sales totaling 16,160units through the first 11 months of the year, an increase of 29%. With the increase of sales numbers, Honda has held strong on its Ridgeline and has announced that they are going to bring a new Honda Ridgeline in two years!
From the teaser sketch recently released from Honda, it looks like the new Honda Ridgeline will be ditching the single-piece body in favor of a more conventional pickup design. Honda will be heading in a whole new direction for the next-generation model! It will be designed by Honda R&D Americas, Inc. at its Los Angeles and Ohio R&D centers.
Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. said:
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. With a clear path forward, Ridgeline will play an even more important role in our future product portfolio and strengthen an already class-leading lineup of light trucks.
