Honda’s revised 2009 Ridgeline pickup has been caught by spy photographers. The new truck will feature a modified front end that may also be close to what the next Pilot will look like.
From these photos it looks like the rear end will stay the same as the current model, although that could change as we get closer to the release date.
One of the main complaints about the current Ridgeline is the fact that it becomes slightly underpowered when it is towing. It is not known if Honda has any plans to upgrade the current V6 in the Ridgeline. Although it is rumored that Honda is working on a diesel powertrain and possibly a hybrid for the truck. Release dates for those versions are not known.
The second generation Ridgeline is expected in 2011.
