    Lightbulb Kia Pickup Truck Previewed



    Could a Kia pickup truck be in the cards?


    With every automaker rapidly expanding its lineup of trucks and SUVs, it wouldn’t come as a surprise. Kia recently just expanded its off-road-capable lineup with the launch of the Telluride, a vehicle that has inspired this artists rendering.


    With Kia’s sister-company Hyundai looking to get into the compact pickup segment with the Santa Cruz, Kia wouldn’t want to compete. Instead, it would move up-market and up in size, with Telluride-based mid-size pickup. Similar in design to the Honda Ridgeline or the previewed Volkswagen Tanoak concept, the Telluride pickup would be a unibody construction and feature the same all-wheel drive system as the SUV, with power defaulting to the front axle, but with the ability for an AWD lock at speeds under 40 mph.

    If so it would be the best pickup available.

    Bed looks too short for a motorcycle or a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood or drywall.

    I like short bed pickups
    Better turning radius (other than my wife's 2004 GMC Sonoma 4X4)
    Better for Jeep trails
    Can still haul water tank, firewood, trash, building supplies...although I will admit to having to backup about a tenth mile of Jeep trail to avoid losing a load of 8' long lumber.

    Too narrow for 4x8, but length probably not an issue.
    So many folks driving trucks nowadays never/seldom haul anything, I could haul 3 dirt bikes in my 1973 Datsun with the gate down.

    Somewhere I have a picture of my 2013 soul, loaded with a dozen 8' long 2x4's.
    Since I bought my 2020 Soul, I've already done the load of 2x4's bit. With a roof rack I could also do the 4x8 plywood trick.

    Keep your pickups, I've got a Soul!
