It looks like 2019 Audi Pickup Truck will be one of the company’s newest additions to the already wide lineup of different models. We are all aware that the car market is expanding constantly. One of the future segments will be a class of luxury trucks.
Originally, these vehicles were seen as workhorses. A few decades ago, North American manufacturers started with special, performance versions that offer mind-blowing performances. Many of these trucks are even famous for excellent comfort. Still, no one has probably imagined that luxury trucks would exist one day. Times are changing and we are witnesses of development of the first vehicle of this kind by Mercedes. If Mercedes can, why Audi wouldn’t do the same thing? The 2019 Pickup Truck would be the first vehicle of this kind in Audi’s history and we are pretty excited to see how it will look like.
2019 Audi Pickup Truck design
First of all, you should keep in mind that all of this is just a speculation at the moment. While Mercedes already start development, Audi is still considering the new utility vehicle. Still, the great benefit of this manufacturer would be the fact that this brand is a part of VW Group, which already has a pickup in its offer, called Amarok.
The new 2019 Audi Pickup Truck would use the same platform as VW’s capable mid-size truck, which competes with famous models like Toyota Hilux, Isuzu D-Max, Chevy Colorado and others. Considering that Amarok is actually slightly bigger, this would be a perfect solution to accentuate its premium character. We would expect pretty much same mechanics, although engine specification could vary, depending on the market. On the other side, visual appearance should be completely unique.
2019 Audi Pickup Truck styling
This would be the first thing where 2019 Audi Pickup Truck could stand out compared to other trucks of this size. While the mechanics will probably be completely the same as on Amarok, styling would be completely adapted to the brand’s corporate look. Considering that Audi has updated its design language recently, we can make some base presumptions on how the new 2019 Audi Pickup Truck could like. While the back of the truck is a complete mystery, the front end should look like pretty much like the one that we can see on the new Audi Q7 SUV.
When it comes to the interior design, we can also presume that dashboard layout would look pretty familiar. Considering all this, it’s not that hard to imagine how this pickup would look like.
2019 Audi Pickup Truck engines
When it comes to powertrain, there will be no surprises. We are expecting to see VW’s familiar units. For the international version, we would pick a familiar 3.0-liter TDI V6 diesel engine. This unit delivers around 220 horsepower and over 400 pound-feet of torque.
On the other side, North American version would definitely feature a gasoline unit. Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less than another familiar V6 unit with a displacement of 3.0 liters. This time, max power goes around 333 horses and 325 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is also a chance to see some hi-performance version, with an even more powerful engine under the hood of 2019 Audi Pickup Truck. Transmission choice would be between 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic.
2019 Audi Pickup Truck release date and price
We are still waiting for the company to give the green light for this model. After that, we will know more about the launch date. When it comes to the price, some reports suggest a sum between 45.000 and 50.000 dollars for the base model. A key competitor would be the upcoming truck from Mercedes.
