The Lexus Pickup will be something completely new from Japanese car maker. This luxury brand is going to introduce a pickup truck. Some time ago, this would sound extremely strange and completely unrealistic. However, in these days we can see luxurious trucks such as Sierra Denali, F-150 Limited etc. These models are usual nowadays. So, don’t be surprised with this Toyota’s move. New models will come based on popular Hilux, which is one of the most popular trucks in the world. According to the latest reports, this Lexus Pickup will use many design solutions from Hilux, but is will also come with many unique details, especially in terms of styling and equipment.
Lexus Pickup design and features
The Lexus Pickup will be something completely new from Toyota. This will be a luxury pickup, which will come based on popular model Hilux. So far, company didn’t officially announce that production of this vehicle will start, but some reliable sources claim that management gave green light for its development. When it is about its main characteristics, we can only make some prediction for now. One things is pretty for sure. New model will be based on Hilux. This means that Lexus Pickup will ride on the same platform. Since new Hilux came last year, it is clear that many design solutions will be borrowed. However, new pickup should follow design language of Lexus. This means that its front look should be pretty much the same as on crossovers from this brand. We expect same thing inside, where we should see elegant styling, premium materials and tons of equipment.
Lexus Pickup engine
When it is about powertrain, we doubt that Lexus Pickup will feature so much options as Hilux. There are plenty of engines in offer for Toyota’s popular truck. On the other side, we believe that truck from Lexus will come with probably two engines in offer. For the base variant, we expect to see some 4-cyinder unit, while V6 should be optional. These engines will come with plenty of power to provide amazing performances. Also, we won’t be surprised to see a hybrid variant in offer.
Lexus Pickup release date
As we already mentioned, there is no official confirmation for Lexus Pickup, but many sources claim that new vehicle will come for sure. It is still hard to predict when new model could come, but some rumors suggest that we could see it already next year.
