Honda Light Trucks May Gain V6 Diesel

In an interview with Automotive News, Honda's CEO, Takeo Fukui said that the automaker's newly developed diesel technology will find its way into their light truck offerings of the future.

The vehicles identified by Fukui as being the likely recipients of a V6 diesel are the Ridgeline pickup, Pilot SUV and Odyssey minivan, with Acura's MDX also being a candidate for oil-burning power.

The V6 engine is currently under development and will likely debut sometime after Honda introduces their 2.2-liter diesel in 2009.

Except Toyota is buying into the Diesel technology. Toyota may not come out too far behind or behind at all with Isuzu's help.

This actually sounds like a pretty good idea to me. There is a reason why it's called the Honda Motor Company: They build excellent engines.

If this kickstarts GM to throw more diesels into light duty trucks and sport utilities, then I am all for it.
