Fresh renderings of what Kia’s new pickup truck could look like have surfaced online, courtesy of Korean automotive design and spy shot website KKS Studio.
Certainly this doesn’t look much like the previous Kia pickup render we have seen, however based on the new Telluride, it looks bigger & better. Kia has earlier said that its first pickup truck will be a direct rival for the top-sellers like the Toyota Hilux and will be available in a similar range of body and powertrain configurations.
According to Kia Motors Australia COO Damien Meredith:
“Work has begun, we’re talking about a pick-up, dual-cab, single-cab. What we’ve requested is the full gambit of a ute, diesel and petrol.”
Development of both new Korean utes is now well underway, but neither is expected to appear in production form before 2021.
