Honda is planning a mid-size pickup for the US market but is not targeting the full-size sector into which Nissan weighed this week, the Detroit News said. Parts suppliers and others familiar with the plans told the Detroit News that Honda is developing a mid-sized truck that will blend the attributes of a pickup and an SUV. It will likely arrive in showrooms in 2005, built on the same basic vehicle architecture that underpins the Honda Pilot and Acura MDX mid-size SUVs.
