The forthcoming 2021 Kia Pickup Truck is a new product that will be available in Australia. Kia has announced that a dual-cab variant will be offered in Australia, most likely next year. Furthermore, the manufacturer is developing a mid-size single-cab pickup truck. According to the most recent news, the Kia Pickup Truck will be available with both gasoline and diesel engines. Kia did not, however, mention which engines would power this new iteration.
For starters, the company’s target is to have a ten percent share of the Australian market. Mazda already sells the BT-50 truck, indicating that Kia has major ambitions in this market. Furthermore, Hyundai’s Santa Cruz, a crossover-based unibody model, is on the way. We don’t know if this model will arrive in other parts of the world.
Kia Pickup Truck Will Look Closer to Telluride SUV
Nobody knows what the upcoming 2021 Kia Pickup Truck would look like at this stage. Many observers believe that the current iteration would attempt to mimic the Hyundai Tucson and Santa Fe versions. However, many experts believe the truck will be based on SUVs such as Telluride and Seltos. Kia also confirmed that the upcoming model would be a mid-size pickup with a body-on-frame chassis.
Kia Pickup Truck will be available in a single-cab configuration in the first year of manufacturing. Dual cab setup, on the other hand, is very possible. Unfortunately, we have no idea how this new iteration would look. We anticipate a familiar design style from Kia, with a subtly sportier vibe and stunning bodywork.
The interior design of the new 2021 Ka Pickup Truck would most likely be similar to that of the brand’s SUVs and crossovers. However, it is unknown if the interior will be based on the Sportage, the latest Seltos, or another model like Telluride. Whatever happens, we can see the same dashboard design and high-tech features. This also includes the latest driver-assistance aids.
Depending on the cab setup chosen, Kia will offer different seating capacities. The level of comfort will be admirable, especially in the upper trim levels. The interior layout won’t deliver any sorts of surprises, along with the list of standard features. Kia will release more details in the coming weeks.
The engine lineup is a mystery at the moment. As previously said, the upcoming 2021 Kia Pickup Truck will make its debut in Australia. The target, though, is to hit American soil. As a result, we can anticipate two distinct models of the pickup, each with a separate powertrain option. Kia, on the other hand, promised both gasoline and diesel engines.
Unfortunately, Kia did not reveal any more about the engine or transmission. Diesel is unlikely to be available in the United States in the first year of manufacturing. We should expect diesel in the future, as well as some kind of electrification, most likely a plug-in hybrid variant.
2021 Kia Pickup Truck Release Date, Price
The all-new 2021 Kia Pickup Truck will hit the dealerships by the end of the year. Since it is the brand’s first pickup truck, we predict a price of around $30,000. The Kia Pickup Truck will rival other models in the mid-size segment such as Ford Ranger.
