Infiniti Q60 Follows The El Camino Sporty Pickup Truck Trend

Blending in with the scenery on a deserted highway, the Infiniti Q60 has dropped its fashionable look in favor of what Australians like to call a ‘ute’.

Keeping its sloping roofline and riding on an extended wheelbase, which has made room for the rear bed, the sports coupe is nothing more than the latest rendering made by X-Tomi, who has been inspired by a previous image that depicted Volvo’s new V90 Cross Country in a similar body style.

The pickup truck is one of those ‘love it or leave it’ cases, but even if Infiniti would decide to follow its mother brand into the working horse segment, chances are it would utilize the same underpinnings as the Nissan Navara instead of those of a sports car, enhancing its off-road abilities and allowing it to cope with various loads. The latter has served as a basis for both the Renault Alaskan and the Mercedes-Benz GLT, so yes, if Infiniti branched out to pickup trucks, it would be the obvious choice.

Anyhow, Nissan’s luxury brand has its hands full already, what with the Germans being nigh untouchable and Lexus having reinvented itself successfully, which means it’ll do the prudent thing and stick to their coupes, sedans and SUVs.
