Details about the new Ridgeline are few and far between at this stage, but one thing’s for sure: It will have some awfully big tire tracks to fill.

Thanks to the ongoing success of the 2014 Honda Civic, folks in Indiana recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of the automaker’s fourth U.S. production facility. The plant, which is located in Greensburg in the Hoosier state, has been building Civics since 2006. The line started with the sedan model and now also produces the 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid and Honda Civic Natural Gas. Further, it’s not just U.S. customers who benefit from the hard work of the Indiana team; the company builds the 2014 Honda Civic there for export markets as well.

28_2014_Pilot_EX_L

The economical and versatile 2014 Honda Pilot is on sale now with an MSRP of $29,670. That represents a very modest increase of $150 over the 2013 edition, yet the Pilot continues to boast a wide range of advantages against the competition.

For starters, each 2014 Honda Pilot relies on a potent 3.5-liter V-6 engine that serves up 250 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. That motivation is then routed through a robust five-speed automatic transmission which enables EPA grades of up to 25 mpg highway and a maximum tow rating of 4,500 lbs. Of course, the Pilot does need the advantage of all-wheel drive to haul around that kind of tonnage, but Honda’s Variable Torque Management (VTM-4) technology is there to answer the call, and even with four-wheel drive the Pilot is capable of 24 mpg highway.

Honda has been selling vehicles in this country since 1960, but never in all its years has it had an August like the last one. Including sales from its Acura luxury brand, the company delivered 166,432 vehicles last month, an all-time August record that also translated into a 26.7 percent advance over the same period in 2012. Naturally, that record-breaking overall performance was assisted by a number of individual sales records for Honda last month, including one from the Honda CR-V.

2014_Honda_Accord_EX_L_V_6_Sedan027

The mid-size sedan segment is as competitive as ever, but so is the 2014 Honda Accord. It’s at dealerships now with an MSRP of $21,995 and some incredible sales momentum. The former is up by a mere $315, while the latter has pushed deliveries up by 18.8 percent through the first seven months of the year. As a result, the 2014 Honda Accord remains less expensive than rivals like the Toyota Camry or Chevy Malibu, yet it’s also enjoying faster growth than not only that pair, but all other mainstream mid-sizers as well.
