The Korean automaker Kia is getting ready to enter the market for medium pickup trucks and take on Ford, Toyota, and Isuzu. Kia recently revealed on social media that it is working on a pickup truck that will go on sale in 2024. This indicates that Kia is prepared to compete with well-known vehicles like the Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, and Isuzu D-Max. The undertaking is known as TK (Truck Kia).

The pickup truck is being developed, according to a Kia official in Australia, who also assured that it will be very functional and appropriate for its intended use. Additionally, Kia informed its dealers that the truck will be diesel-powered, similar to the Hilux and Ranger, with a payload capacity of 1,000 kg and a towing capacity of 3,500 kg.

Depending on customer preferences, the truck will be offered in single- and double-cab versions with either rear- or four-wheel drive. Kia hasn’t provided any specific design information for the truck.

The new Kia truck might be fitted with 4-cylinder and V6 turbo diesel engines from Hyundai and Kia. A 2.2-liter 4-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with 198 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque and a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 engine with 246 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque are two possible engine choices.

Although Kia intends to expand the project to additional markets in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East, it will first concentrate on taking advantage of demand in Australia, where the pickup segment is extremely competitive.
