Default What if Dacia made a pickup truck

It is no secret that pickup trucks are extremely popular in North America. Knowing that, all car makers should be itching to get into the segment. Check out these renderings of what a Dacia pickup truck could look like.

The rendering is based off of the new Duster. The rear doors have been chopped off to turn it into a single-cab vehicle. An affordable price tag would make the Dacia pickup a great product. I'm sure it would sell nicely.

well dacia operates in Europe only so I don't know if they SHOULD be itching to get into the segment.

Dacia has made a pickup in the past based off the logan, more of a 'Ute.



they're better off going that route with the face lifted Logan instead of going full on pickup...

It would be cool if they do this, it sort of looks like a mix between a VF commodore UTE and a small american truck

Would anyone buy it though? You would think they would just get a real full or mid sized pickup truck.

Maybe in Europe the smaller pickup would sell better than larger trucks. Hopefully it will look better than that picture of the Logan. I hope that is old because it looks like it is from 2003. I wonder how it would sell in Europe. I don't think I know enough about European demand to say much for certain though.

its before the logan was re designed. They don't sell large pickup trucks in Europe, so small ute style trucks are preffered. They're better on gas, drive like cars and are more suited to tighter european roads/cities...

this is true, it's all just for the styling preference, no one will actually use them for truck purposes anyways. just to look cool

thats not true at all. People will pickup furniture and throw it in the back, yard work or tools, they may not use it for typical American pickup truck activities but the logan was always used as a truck.

It may not be hauling 5,000 pound boats or heading off into the woods for some four wheeling.

Pickup trucks are relatively uncool in the UK, especially the Logan. If you get one its because you need one.

If you have a pick up, you will probably use it as one at some point. Whether its you who is moving, or a friend, that is one thing that pick ups are great for. They are also good for bringing plants home from the garden center during the spring and summer. Plenty more uses too.
