Does Hyundai Build a Pickup Truck?

The answer to the question “Does Hyundai build a pickup truck?” is a resounding no. Hyundai has been in the car business for decades, and it has grown from a small company making cars for the Korean market to one of the largest automakers in the world. But while they offer a variety of vehicles, including SUVs and crossovers, they have never ventured into the pickup truck market.

Pickup trucks are some of the most popular vehicles on the market today and manufacturers like Ford, Chevrolet, and Ram have been dominating this segment for decades. So why hasn’t Hyundai made a move into this lucrative market?

It could be due to their focus on smaller vehicles and fuel efficiency. Pickup trucks tend to be large and less fuel efficient than other types of vehicles.

This could put them at odds with Hyundai’s mission statement, which is to create cars that are both economical and reliable. Another reason could be because their current lineup of vehicles is doing very well in terms of sales, so there isn’t really an incentive for them to venture into new markets.

Hyundai does make commercial vehicles like vans, but these are usually smaller than traditional pickup trucks. And while some companies have tried to bridge the gap between cars and pickups with models like Honda’s Ridgeline and Toyota’s Tacoma X-Runner, it doesn’t seem likely that Hyundai will follow suit anytime soon.


Hyundai currently does not produce any pickup truck models, despite being one of the largest automakers in the world. This is likely because they focus on fuel-efficient vehicles rather than larger ones like pickup trucks, as well as due to their current lineup performing very well in terms of sales. Therefore it seems unlikely that they will venture into this new market anytime soon.
