With the recent launch of the X-Class, pickup trucks are becoming a natural environment for luxury brands too. Other two premium brands from Germany are working on pickup truck vehicles as well. Of course, these two are BMW and Audi. While the Bavarian carmaker works on an X5-based truck, the company from Ingolstadt is working on the Q7-based pickup truck. The new 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will be something very new from this manufacturer, which was so far known for passenger cars only.
Still, the new truck won’t go too far away from the company’s roots. It will ride on the company’s familiar unibody platform and feature more car-like characteristics that some spectacular working capabilities. Expect to see 2020 Audi Pickup Truck already in the next year.
2020 Audi Pickup Truck Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, there is no doubt that the 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will have a lot in common with the Q7 crossover. Two models will ride on the same platform, which clearly indicates that the new vehicle will belong to the class of mid-size trucks. With its unibody platform, you can expect nothing less than excellent driving characteristics. The new model will be light and agile. Also, it will be quite large, which means lots of comfort on the inside. According to the latest reports, the 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will feature a little bit stretched wheelbase compared to the Q7 crossover, which will provide enough room for both spacious cabin and large-capacity cargo bed.
2020 Audi Pickup Truck Styling
When it comes to the styling, don’t expect surprises from this carmaker. Just like all brands from the VW Group, Audi also rarely comes with some radical design solutions. This manufacturer sticks to its proven recipes, so the new 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will feature a styling completely adapted to the brand’s current design language. In practice, this would mean pretty much the same front end as the one that characterizes Q7 crossover.
This model came two years ago and follows Audi’s current design philosophy entirely, which includes lots of sharp lines, despite rounded and sleek overall shape. Two models should be pretty much identical from the front end to the B-pillar. On the other side, the rest of the new model will come in a traditional truck manner. As we already mentioned, the 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will probably feature a stretched wheelbase, so expect a spacious cabin, but also a large bed with plenty of volume.
How the is 2020 Audi Pickup Truck going to look on the inside?
In this aspect, we don’t expect surprises. The 2020 Audi Pickup Truck will come in some kind of a double-cab layout, which indicates lots of interior space. Speaking of the look, expect pretty much the same dashboard as in the Q7, which means an A8-inspired cabin, with lots of hi-quality materials and plenty of tech features.
2020 Audi Pickup Truck Engines
Expect a familiar lineup of engines for this pickup truck. Base models will probably feature a familiar 3.0-liter V6 engine, which is good for about 333 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. Also, expect an optional, smalle 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, which also delivers lots of power, around 250 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
Diesel engines definitely won’t come to North America, but you can expect them in other parts of the world. A familiar 3.0-liter TDI unit will definitely find its place under the hood, while many reports also suggest a performance version, powered by a bigger 4.0-liter V8 TDI unit.
When will 2020 Audi Pickup Truck arrive?
Most likely, the new model will arrive sometime in the next year. Base models should go around 45.000-50.000 dollars.
