The folks at Honda had a bountiful showing in the Windy City at the Chicago Auto Show, revealing the 2016 Honda Pilot and showing off the 2015 Honda Fit. Despite this, one of the most talked about things coming out of Chicago was the first look at the design of the all-new Honda Ridgeline.
“The all-new truck will take the original’s award-winning performance, comfort and utility to new levels with completely new styling that communicates unmistakably that it’s a pickup, yet with a uniquely Honda flair,” said Honda in a recent press release.
It isn’t much to go off of, but if this initial sketch is any indication, Honda is serious about bringing back its mid-size pickup in a big way after discontinuing it prior to the 2015 model year. According to Honda Marketing VP Jeff Conrad, the new Honda Ridgeline will be a flexible truck that should be larger and sit higher than its predecessor, and we should be seeing it in as little as two years’ time.
Let the rumors run rampant: will it use aluminum? Will it still be unibody? Diesel options?
While we may not know much, there’s one thing all of us here at Basney Honda do know: it’s going to be awesome.
