Honda unveils new Ridgeline pickup truck

LINCOLN, Ala. (AP) - The next-generation of the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck was unveiled Thursday at the company's assembly plant in Lincoln.

Honda said its 2009 Ridgeline will feature dozens of new additions, including new body styling, a more powerful engine and a revamped interior. Earlier this year, the Japanese automaker announced it was moving production of its Ridgeline pickup from Canada to Alabama.

Production is scheduled to begin early next year. The Lincoln plant already manufactures the Pilot sport utility vehicles and Odyssey minivans.
