Hyundai is rumored to be developing a new pickup truck that will be bigger and more rugged than the Santa Cruz. While there is no official word on the specifications of this new truck, it is expected to be a body-on-frame design, which will make it more capable off-road.
It is worth noting that Kia is also developing a new pickup truck that could make it to America. The truck is expected to be an old-school body-on-frame design, which will make it more capable off-road. It is not clear if the new Hyundai truck will share any components with the Kia truck.
SRK Designs, the Picasso of automotive illustrations has created a speculative rendering of the new Hyundai pickup truck, which gives us a glimpse of what the new model could look like. The rendering shows a muscular and rugged truck with a bold front fascia and a large grille. The truck also features flared wheel arches, beefy tires, and a high ground clearance, which further emphasizes its off-road capabilities. While this is not an official design, it does give us an idea of what the new truck could look like.
The engine of the new Hyundai pickup truck is still shrouded in mystery. Some rumors suggest that it will be a hybrid monster, snorting fire and saving fuel like a one-horned eco-warrior. Others whisper about a gutsy, six-cylinder diesel borrowed from the fancy Genesis GV80 SUV. Either way, this truck is expected to have the muscle of a prize stallion.
In addition to its brawny exterior, the new Hyundai pickup truck is expected to be a base camp for weekend warriors and off-road explorers who crave the open range. It is rumored to have lockable truck beds that stretch longer than a tall tale, rooftop tents for counting stars, and built-in kitchens for cooking up campfire feasts fit for a king.
While these are just whispers and campfire stories, the market is hungry for a mid-size truck that’s equal parts muscle, smarts, and adventure-ready swagger, and Hyundai smells opportunity like a hawk’s eye view. It remains to be seen if the new truck will live up to the hype, but it’s clear that Hyundai is aiming to shake up the mid-size truck rodeo with this new offering and who knows, maybe SRK Designs’ vision isn’t so far-fetched after all. Buckle up, adventure awaits.
