2023 Kia Sportage Pickup Truck Could Go on Sale Next Year

2023 Kia Sportage Pickup Truck – Last month saw the unveiling of the new Kia Sportage SUV. There are rumors that the manufacturer may also be working on a pickup truck version. The 2023 Kia Sportage Pickup Truck has been redesigned and appears almost identical to the SUV. The front of the new model features the same design language as the previous model, with an attractive grille, headlights, and headlights. At the back, it has a shorter bed. The new platform N3 that supports the Hyundai Tucson, Santa Cruz, and Kia Sportage is the basis for the Kia Sportage. South Korea’s compact-sized sports adventure vehicle will help it break into the mid-sized pickup truck market.

Exterior

The 2023 Kia Sportage Pickup Truck appears identical to the SUV. The front is dominated by a bumper, grille, skid plate and boomerang-shaped lights. The doors were also protected with new protective material. We also saw the same wheels on the SUV. The pickup truck at the back, unlike the SUV model, has a shorter bed, redesigned taillights, and a new exhaust. On the Kia Sportage, there are currently alloy wheels in sizes 17-18 and 19 inches. These renderings are hoped that the manufacturer will use these renderings if it decides to make a pickup model.

Cabin Design

There are currently no renderings of the 2023 Kia Sportage pickup. Many believe the pickup truck will look no different to the SUV version if it is released. The new-generation SUV has a comfortable and supportive seat with ample space for passengers to stretch out. The bed will likely reduce the pickup truck’s headroom. Many features are also included in the SUV version. The SUV variant features an 8-inch touch screen, Air Conditioning (with rear vents), a heated steering wheel, and a Leatherette headliner.

Engine

This model is still in development, so there are no details on its engine. We expect that this model will use the same powertrains, if it is ever made, as the SUV model. The standard model will have a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 181 horsepower. There is also an optional turbo 4-cylinder engine of 2.0-liters that produces an impressive 240 horsepower. You have the option of either front- or all-wheel drive, with the SUV model using a 6-speed manual transmission. The pickup can tow more than the Sportage SUV which can tow up to 2000 pounds.
