2016 Honda Ridgeline Set To Make Debut At Detroit Auto Show
The second-generation Honda Ridgeline will make its debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the same place the original Ridgeline debuted way back in 2005.
The new Ridgeline was designed, developed, and manufactured in the United States and will be a completely new model. Senior Vice President and General Manger of the Honda Division says, “We developed this new Honda Ridgeline to offer something new and fundamentally better suited to the way many buyers use their truck. Ridgeline will deliver everything you’d expect in a Honda, from incredible packaging and fuel efficiency to top safety technologies and innovative, segment-first features…”
The new Ridgeline looks like the cab may actually be separate from the bed, suggesting possible body-on-frame (BOF) construction or, at the very least, a unibody cab with a rear frame. With a rear frame and true bed, increased payload and towing capacity may be in store for the 2016 Ridgeline.
We hope the in-bed “trunk” from the previous generation will be in the new truck and are interested to see what new features Honda will bring to the truck market in Detroit. No official specs will be released until January 11, but we will keep you updated from the Detroit Auto Show right here on trucktrend.com.
