Anytime a new vehicle with major updates is announced, there’s generally non-stop buzz from the vehicle’s initial announcement to eventual release. For Honda, that buzz has largely been surrounding the next generation Ridgeline truck that they’ve been incredibly tightlipped about. What do we know about the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, exactly? Well, to be frank, not much at all. There is good news lately however, and that is that Honda has given us an idea of when we’ll actually get a glimpse of this highly anticipated pickup truck and possibly when we could drive it off a dealership lot.
For a while, we actually knew nothing about the new Ridgeline other than the fact that it would be completely redesigned for the next generation. We weren’t even sure if the Ridgeline would be here in 2016 or 2017, since Honda simply said it would show up in the next couple years. Now we have a better idea of when we’ll actually get to see the updated Ridgeline.
2017 Honda Ridgeline Release Date
It looks like we’ll be getting a 2017 Honda Ridgeline, which will make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in the US. That show will take place on January 11, and Honda is offering a live-stream to those interested on the US Honda website. Before this, all we really had was a sketch of what we can probably expect, but now we also have a real teaser image, which can be seen to the right.
Those who plan to watch the Super Bowl will also get a first look at the 2017 Ridgeline. Honda plans to air a 60 second TV spot during the big game to show off the updated pickup truck. Honda has also announced the new Ridgeline will launch sometime before the end of summer 2016 in the US.
What does that mean for us here in Canada? Well, we know the Ridgeline is coming here as well, though we have had far less information come our way. We can speculate that it won’t be all that far behind the US release if it’s not at the same time.
Though we don’t have a lot of information about the 2017 Honda Ridgeline quite yet, we’ll continue updating all of you in the Ridgeline section of our blog. In the meantime while we wait for more information, you can check out some great info about the previous 2014 Honda Ridgeline.
