From the article:
"Two light trucks scheduled for the U.S. market in the next three years could showcase Fukui's fun-to-drive approach. One, to be badged a Honda, is based on the MDX sport wagon.

"It will be a new genre, a new niche," Fukui said, refusing to comment on reports that the vehicle will be a short-bed SUV-type compact pickup.

The second vehicle will be badged as an Acura and will be about the size of the Honda CR-V.

Shoring up the U.S. lineup of light trucks is one of Fukui's top priorities. While light trucks accounted for half of U.S. sales last year, they accounted for only one-third of Honda's volume.

Honda aims to boost light-truck sales almost to match sales of passenger cars in several years to come. "We should respond to demand," Fukui said.

Even so, Fukui isn't about to gamble. He said he has no plans to develop a full-sized pickup or to expand production capacity by building more plants in North America."
