Honda has begun building its 2017 Ridgeline mid-size pickup at its Lincoln, Ala., manufacturing plant and will offer the significantly refreshed truck "soon" at dealerships, Honda has announced.

For the 2017 model year, the Ridgeline adds technology updates, improved driving dynamics, and a more versitable bed that includes an "in-bed truck" storage locker, dual-action tailgate, and in-bed audio system. Honda is also shifting the Ridgeline to a unibody platform.

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