Is Kia Coming Out With a Pickup Truck?

Kia Motors is the fifth-largest automobile manufacturer in the world. Over the past few years, Kia has become increasingly popular due to its reliability and affordability.

With a strong lineup of cars, SUVs, and minivans, Kia has something for everyone. Recently, there have been rumors that Kia is coming out with a pickup truck.

The rumors began after Kia released several teaser images of a concept pickup truck at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. The concept was called the Kia Telluride and it featured an aggressive design with a large cargo bed.

Though no official details were given about the vehicle, it seemed to be an indication that Kia was working on a pickup truck.

Since then, there has been much speculation about what this vehicle could be like. Some believe that it could be similar to the Hyundai Santa Cruz concept which debuted in 2015.

This concept featured a unibody construction, meaning it had car-like handling but still had enough space for larger items in its bed.

Kia has yet to confirm or deny these rumors, but they have stated that they are exploring different segments of the market for new vehicle ideas. This could mean that they are looking into producing a pickup truck as well as other types of vehicles.


It appears that Kia is exploring different segments of the market and may be considering producing a pickup truck in the future. While nothing has been confirmed or denied yet, this could be an interesting development for those who are looking for an affordable yet reliable truck option from Kia Motors.
