"It was the week of Ridgeline, as we celebrated the mass production launch at our Alabama manufacturing plant and revealed all the details surrounding this U.S.-developed Honda truck. It was especially exciting to see so many positive reviews from the members of the press, who recognize the Ridgeline as a truly new and unique vehicle in the midsize pickup market.

Like its predecessor, the 2017 Ridgeline defies conventional wisdom with its unibody construction and all the benefits that brings in terms of ride, handling, packaging, safety and bed utility – as well as breakthrough features like the Truck Bed Audio system. Ridgeline is the kind of product people expect of Honda – something challenging and innovative in how it seeks to create new value for the customer.

It's to the credit of our North American R&D and manufacturing teams that this new Ridgeline is coming out of the blocks with such positive momentum, and we can't wait to hear from our Ridgeline customers on their experience with their new Honda truck in the days ahead."
