2018 Kia Pickup With Same Hyundai Pickup Design

2018 Kia Pickup release date

According to recent reports, it seems that Kia is seriously considering to enter the pickup truck segment for the first time in its history. The company’s decision doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering the fact that its sister company Hyundai is due to launch the Santa Cruz pickup in late 2016 or early 2017. Kia’s officials are certainly keen on this idea after Hyundai’s first-ever pickup truck was warmly welcomed by car enthusiasts all around the world. If everything goes according to plan, Kia is very likely to reveal its own version of the small pickup sometime in 2017. Needless to say, the 2018 Kia Pickup will share most of its mechanical components with the Hyundai Santa Cruz, while the two models should differ when it comes to the exterior styling.

2017 Ram 1500 Diesel Price and Release

2017 Ram 1500 Diesel

Ram’s half-ton pickup truck is most likely to be redesigned for the 2018 model year. In that regard, expect the 2017 model to bring only modest changes. However, the diesel-powered version of the 1500 truck will once again offer the class-leading fuel economy. We expect the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 to be sold in even higher numbers once the 2017 Ram 1500 Diesel hits the market. While awaiting the complete overhaul, Ram’s most popular truck will face a difficult task of competing with much fresher models that include the new Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra and the recently launched Nissan Titan.

High-performance pickup trucks were once very popular on the North American market. Sadly, most of such models died out while the pickup truck segment was undergoing dramatic changes. Luckily, some of the American automakers announced the revival of this market niche just a few years ago. Apart from the Ford F-150 Tremor that arrived for the 2014 model year, the Chevrolet Silverado Cheyenne Concept was revealed in 2013 as a vehicle that combines features of the Chevy Camaro Z/28 and Chevy Silverado. Unfortunately, we’ve been waiting ever since for the company to announce its debut. According to recent reports, the high-performance sport version of the Silverado might arrive sometime in 2016 as a 2017 model. If that pans out, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado Cheyenne could become a worthy successor to the likes of the famous Ford F-150 SVT Lightning and Dodge Ram SRT-10.

Despite arriving almost unchanged in comparison to the previous model, Ram’s half-ton pickup will remain one of the most appealing options in this hotly contested segment. Thanks to its exceptionally comfortable cabin combined with a highly efficient engine range, the upcoming Ram 1500 will be able to take on its much younger rivals. While the current generation of the 1500 made its debut in 2008, the list of its competitors includes the recently redesigned Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, as well as the brand new 2016 Nissan Titan.  Continue reading “2017 Ram 1500 Price and Release”
