Several companies announced for 2020-2021 the all-new pickup trucks models. First of all, they are based mainly on existing SUV models. Currently, there are certainly Chevy Kodiak, all-electric Tesla pickup, Lamborghini Urus, Honda Ridgeline Type R, Yamaha Cross Hub, Jeep Scrambler and Jeep Gladiator. Some will be available by the end of this year, while most will appear in 2019. Also, are under preparation BMW (X5), Audi (Q7), Lexus (Toyota Hilux), Volvo (XC90), Kia (likely Mojave), Subaru (VIZIV-7), Skoda (Kodiaq) and Infiniti (QX50) pickups. These models will be on sale from the end of next year, as well as during 2020 and 2021.
As for the exterior, the front and the sides will be very similar to the SUV models. Of course, there is a cargo area in the back. In addition to the standard radiator grilles, it is likely that complete lighting will be in LED technology. The interior design is characterized by extremely comfortable seats (fabric or leather), adjustable leather steering wheels and automatic climate control. In front of the driver are large screens for tracking driving parameters. Also, the central console will have a touchscreen with an infotainment system.
Placed will be on existing platforms and wheels. They will probably offer two or three size cabs (with two or four doors), designed to accommodate two to five passengers. Also, we assume that they will have the same levels of trim. The width and height will not deviate much from the SUV model, while the length will be slightly higher. Of course, excepted is a smaller increase in wheelbase. First of all, payload and towing capacity will be higher.
We assume that 2020-2021 all-new pickup truck models will have a four-wheel drive. Of course, the standard will offer a drive on the front or rear wheels. In addition, some companies will have a 6×6 drive. Depending on the selection, the offer will be manual or automatic gearboxes. Also, the engines will be taken from the SUV model, but we also do not exclude completely new engines. Probably with a slight increase in power, but with a higher torque.
Of course, prices 2020-2021 the all-new pickup trucks vary depending on the manufacturer. Given that it will have similar characteristics, we believe that the price will not deviate much from the SUV model.
