Land Rover Jumping Into Pickup Truck Parade

Also this week, MotorBiscuit revealed a unique Land Rover pickup built in Mexico. Then we asked why Land Rover didn’t participate in the popular pickup parade. Especially when the SUVs that Land Rover exclusively produces were made (and in some cases still are made) from pickup trucks. It looks like Land Rover is finally going to build a pickup truck.

The Land Roverhas always minimized the need for thepickup.

In the past, Land Rover has minimized the need to produce a pickup truck. There are rumors that it may be included in the current development of the Defender’s D7x platform. But if that had been a consideration, it never would have happened. A source at Land Rover told Motor1: Why buy a double cab when you can see what you can fit in the back of one? It’s already eating with a roof. I hope this person is no longer involved in planning Land Rover products.

What’s interesting about this change is that the Defender is a single-seat vehicle, whereas most pickups have frame-mounted bodies. This Defender pickup will therefore be more in the range of the Ford Maverick, Honda Ridgeline and Hyundai Santa Cruz. Nevertheless, a powerful pickup can be built based on a single-seat platform, which simply helps diversify the number of Land Rovers while amortizing the cost of two vehicles instead of one.

TheDefender pickup would be a good addition to thefamily.

LIABLE : Hot tip: The Land Rover Defender 2021 could well be the best model in the range.

According to Autocar, Nick Collins, executive director of automotive programs at Land Rover, says there is consumer demand and no structural limitations to the Defender platform. He also stated that the Defender will become a family of vehicles. We already know that Land Rover produces the Defender 130 with a long wheelbase. A pickup truck would be a good addition for the family.

Like we said, if you already have 80% of your pickup, why not use the extra 20% for an entirely different vehicle? Once the first tools are ready, it will be possible to make a business case for different options. The Chevrolet Suburban is 80% Silverado.

This is a booming market and Land Rover has some Defenderimplements.

The mid-size pickup truck segment is growing. It’s a hot market and Land Rover has a Defender tool that it doesn’t use very well. You’d expect that if the idea of a pickup truck is a new revelation, it won’t see the light of day until around 2024. If it’s been in development since Defender started, expect it to be ready by 2022.

Either way, the Defender is a nice van and Land Rover will be able to sell a lot of them when they finally arrive. Expect the defender to be as ready to play with power as he is. You don’t need lame changes for that. It will probably be priced 20-30% higher than the Honda Ridgeline and will be marketed as a luxury pickup.
