Alabama-built Honda Ridgeline wins 2017 ‘Truck of the Year’ award

DETROIT, Michigan — The Alabama-built Honda Ridgeline pickup has been named the 2017 North American Truck of the Year.

The award was announced this morning at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Ridgeline bested two other finalists: the Ford F-series Super Duty and the Nissan Titan.

In accepting the award, John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., credited the team behind the Ridgeline for “re-imagining the pickup.”

“The Ridgeline has been incredible for us,” he said. “Consumers love it, it’s been virtually sold out since we introduced it here last year.”
