This is the first image of the Honda Rigdeline, the renewed pick-up of Honda

Yes, Honda makes a pick-up. It is a model exclusive to the american continent, and is called Honda Ridgeline. Is basically the version pick-up of the Honda Pilot, a large SUV that has been renovated in the past year. In a segment oriented heavily to work, where the numbers of load and capacity of drag are the main figure of marketing, Honda is going to launch a pick-up that was more focused on the leisure. Even so, this new Honda Ridgeline is a machine more capable and practical than the first generation. And this is your first image.

More than a pick-up, is an SUV with the body pick-up. At the mechanistic level. it is a carbon copy of the Honda Pilot.

The Honda Ridgeline will be moved by a engine 3.5 V6 i-VTEC 280 HP of power, which will send its power to the front wheels or to all four wheels through an automatic gearbox of six relations. Honda says that it will have the best performance and the consumption of his class. When not to use a traditional structure of stringers and rails – as the rest of the pick-up truck – the Honda Ridgeline are lighter and have a better behavior. Are directly derived from the chassis monohull of the Honda Pilot.

ridgline-zagaThe be derived of the Honda Pilot, holds a front of strong features, and is equipped with optics with a characteristic signature of LED. Your profile is much more balanced than its first generation, with four doors and a box of about 1.20 meters in length. At the level of the load capacity on its box can lead to about 725 kilos. It is a figure that puts it a step below the Toyota Tacoma or Chevrolet Colorado, belonging to a lower category. A curious experiment that we will see if it works on a commercial level.
