While there had been talk about Honda's midsize pickup going away, Honda surprised us all Tuesday when it announced that although production for the current generation will end in mid-2014, a new version is coming within "the next two years," whenever that might be.
Honda released a teaser image, and a teaser it is. Mostly a silhouette, it offers little more than the outline of the cab and bed. It's hard to tell from this if the Ridgeline will be bigger (or more capable).
The automaker says that design work is underway in both its California and Ohio research and development centers, and notes that the current Ridgeline has seen something of a sales bump in 2013, with sales up 29 percent for the first 11 months of this year.
How will dyed-in-the-wool pickup truck people respond? You tell us.
