WardsAuto reports that Honda will be discontinuing its Ridgeline pickup truck in September of 2014, to make way for a likely replacement in the second-quarter of 2016. That means the Ridgeline will have been in production for nearly nine years as it was first introduced in the spring of 2005 as a 2006 model.
Honda didn’t specify any details as Honda’s spokesman Steve Kindle told WardsAuto: “(While) we don’t comment on future product decisions, Ridgeline continues to be an important part of our lineup and we’re pleased with Ridgeline sales, up 24% year-on-year and 32% in June.”
Resultantly, their expression of confidence in the Ridgeline strongly suggests that Honda won’t let the Ridgeline die altogether, but change shape for the new generation.
