Automakers Blaze New Trails In Detroit

Honda heads into pickup truck category...finally

Published: 09-Jan-2004

If Honda expects to keep up with Toyota and Nissan in North America, it will have to expand its offerings in the fastest growing segment of the automotive market - trucks.

Not a moment too soon, Honda introduced its first "Sport Utility Truck" - or SUT - at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week.

Although the SUT on the turntable in Detroit is technically a concept vehicle, Honda officials confirmed plans to build the light-duty truck at the maker's Alliston, Ontario, plant in 2005.
