“The reports in the media that we have plans to discontinue the Ridgeline pick-up truck are false,” said Sage Marie, manager of truck product planning at Honda, addressing media reports that the unibody pickup was to be killed off. Today, Honda went ahead and solidified its statement by announcing the pricing details for the 2012 model year Ridgeline.
The four-door, five-passenger pickup received upgraded styling, better highway fuel-economy and a new Ridgeline Sport model that provides high-value features targeted at the entry four-wheel-drive truck segment.
