Honda says Ridgeline will remain in the lineup for the 'foreseeable future'


Honda's mid-sized pickup is here to stay. That's what the automaker is saying about theRidgeline.

"Reports in the Media That We have plans to discontinue the Ridgeline pick-up trucks arefalse," Honda said this week on its Web site.

"To the contrary, Ridgeline has a significant role in the Honda line-up and it is expected to continue in the foreseeable future."

In our annual series on May futures product. 1, We said the Ridgeline would bediscontinued in 2013. A month later, I wrote a blog headlined "Why Honda's Ridgelinepickup is driving off into the sunset."

Our sources, including a Honda insider, Had said Ridgeline As We know it would die andThat It Might Be replaced by a compact pickup / lifestyle vehicle based on the CR-Vplatform

Honda now says a small pickup derived from the CR-V is not in the works.

We'll skip a discussion about how long the "foreseeable future" Lasts, and whether avehicle That switches platforms, but keeps its name is "killed" or not.

As for the facts: The Ridgeline arrived in 2005. Its best year was 2006, with 50.193 U.S.sales. This year, Honda Will sell about one-fifth as many.

The sales dive is no surprise considering the lack of sheet metal engineering changes and significant improvements over the past six years. Honda says the Ridgeline 2012 Willhave new styling cues, improved fuel economy and an added trim levels, Sport Called.
