The South Korean based automaker Hyundai is currently considering developing a pickup truck which will become available for order across the United States.
Hyundai and Kia cars are well seen in the United States but the goal for the South Korean based automaker is to increase its vehicle range by adding a pickup truck, which will be aimed towards the same over-seas automotive market. The announcement on Hyundai considering a pickup truck has been made by the company’s vice president of International Sales, Lee In-cheol, who has recently spoken with the guys at Automotive News.
“We do not have a pickup truck. Other than that, we cover almost every segment. We are studying that one very hard — what kind of pickup truck we should produce, if we have to. Is it a big-size pickup truck like in the United States or a small kind of pickup truck?”, as Lee told the source mentioned above.
There is no official word on when Hyundai is planning to introduce its brand new pickup truck, in a concept form at least, or what engines the model will use. Additional details on the Hyundai pickup truck remain unknown for the moment and will be announced close to its public debut, if this turns out to be true.
