Lincoln, Alabama – More than 1,500 associates at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA) have celebrated the start of mass production of the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck, slated to go on-sale soon at Honda dealerships nationwide. HMA is the exclusive manufacturer of the Ridgeline.

"Today we celebrate the dedication of our Alabama team in bringing a very innovative new pickup truck to market," says Jeff Tomko, president of HMA. "I congratulate all of our associates for their commitment to our customers as the Ridgeline returns with new features that will deliver even more of what today's truck customers want and need."

The Ridgeline is produced in the same plant in Alabama as the Pilot sport utility vehicle and Odyssey minivan, as well as the Acura MDX luxury SUV.

In 2016, Honda will continue the fortification of its light-truck family of vehicles with the new Ridgeline and a redesigned Odyssey minivan.
