Report: Current Honda Ridgeline to end production in 2014, new model not due till 2016

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.
