It seems that Infiniti Pickup Truck Concept has gained an immense popularity that will not dwindle anytime soon. The pickup trucks are prevalent in the United States, and car makers are seriously investing in this specific segment.
The logic behind Infiniti getting into the luxury pickup segment is inspired by Mercedes joining the same division. However, the Japanese car manufacturer is yet to confirm these allegations. The Infiniti Pickup Truck concept would easily adapt to Nissan’s more agricultural versions. Theophilus Chin recently displayed a rendering that reveals a handsome looking truck. The new concept has a beautiful design with a bold face, faintly arched crease flowing down the sides and amusing proportions.
Infiniti Pickup Truck Concept – Design and Tech
The Infiniti Pickup Truck concept is set to use Nissan Nevara’s underpinnings, but the truck would also sport Mercedes body styling. It will showcase a more distinct personality alongside better materials in the cabin. It appears the automaker plans to make a bold impression with this future concept.
The wing-shaped front trim and satin-finish radiator are sleek and contemporary. Additionally, the concept sports square front fenders and peaked hood that convey a beefy stance up front. The truck’s blacked-out A, B, and C-pillars alongside a cantilevered roof reflect what we find on the Nissan GT-R. Besides, the common floating-roof trend will become a thing of the past.
The latest Infiniti Pickup Truck also portrays a striking stripe of polished metal that trims the whole greenhouse. We also noticed the A-pillar/windshield intersection that is undoubtedly gorgeous. A long, slim eyebrow links the fender-mounted lateral-view cameras to each headlamp. The production Infinity model is likely to ditch the cameras in favor of more conventional mirrors, though. The trendy headlight trim should also survive in the production version.
The engineering facet in the interior of the new Infiniti Pickup Truck concept is a lot more intriguing than its design. According to Infiniti, this concept becomes a practical vehicle with improved autonomous technology. It flaunts the brand’s latest driver assistance package with near-autonomous technology.
For instance, vehicles such as the Q60 and QX60 mid-sized SUVs already feature near-autonomous technologies. Besides, Infiniti claims it continues to develop them to become even better in subsequent releases. Among these tech features include adaptive steering that reduces road feedback, front collision warning system and lane control system that obstructs unintended drift.
Infiniti Pickup Truck Concept – Powerful Drivetrain
Aside from the fact that this Pickup Truck concept is opulent inside, it equally receives a powerful drivetrain. It is constructed from the full-size truck frame and gets its juice from a 5.6-liter V8 engine that yields up to 400 horsepower. The engine will be paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
In this truck, the rear-wheel drive will become standard while all-wheel-drive system comes as an option. The latest Infiniti matches its rivals as far as comfort is concerned.
Infiniti Pickup Truck Concept – Launch Date and Price
The details about prices and release date are scarce. However, the production version is likely to greet the New York Auto Show in next year’s spring. Stay tuned.
