Good News – Honda Begins Production Of 2017 Ridgeline

By  | 

Dealers have had a tough time with demand for the Honda Pilot and CR-V unable to be fulfilled. They’ve hoped that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline would arrive sooner, knowing that it would surely allay the frustrations of vehicle shoppers.

Fortunately enough for everyone Honda has commenced production of the pickup at its plant in Alabama, and stock should arrive to dealers soon enough.

Though Ridgeline has a conventional look, it is not a like-for-like competitor against the Toyota Tacoma or GM twins. Light-duty pickup functionality would be available, but for the most part it would drive like an SUV, or specifically a Honda Pilot.

Equipped with a FWD (it has an AWD option), the Honda truck returns 23mpg combined fuel economy using the same 3.5L V6 from the Pilot SUV. However, its official towing capacity is not yet disclosed. Its figure is tentatively at 5,000lbs.

Pricing of the truck has also not been revealed yet. Users can expect to pay about $22,000 to $25,000 for it.
