ALLISTON, Ont. — Honda has some good news for vehicle haulers currently bracing for a possible slowdown in the coming months — the company will start making its new SUV here this week.

Just days after Ford tweaked out production of its Mercury Marauder, a muscle car icon, in St. Thomas; the Japan-based automaker hasn’t said how many SUVs it expects to produce, but the new vehicle marks Honda’s growing presence in Canada.

The carmaker’s two Canadian plants — which make the Honda Civic, Acura EL sedan, Acura MDX sport utility vehicle and the Honda Odyssey minivan — pumped out more than 370,000 vehicles last year.

With strong sales in passenger cars, Honda is aiming to grab a bigger chunk of the growing light-truck market.
