A Range Rover Velar Pickup Truck Would Humble Merc’s X-Class

Pickup trucks are some of the most utilitarian vehicles on the market. Consequently, one might have thought that a brand like Range Rover, who specializes in luxurious, spacious, and capable off-road vehicles, to take a look at the segment, especially after Mercedes-Benz came out with the X-Class.

However, unlike Merc, BMW and the rest of premium brands are simply not interested in making a pickup truck. Nonetheless, Rain Prisk has imagined how a Range Rover pickup might look like even if the brand won’t ever make such a thing.

As Prisk’s pickup is based around the Velar, most of its front fascia remains bog standard, albeit for a few styling add-ons. The serious changes start at the roof, which has been shortened to make room for a large trunk bed. The rear wheels have also been pushed back to lengthen the vehicle and create something that would surely give the Mercedes-Benz X-Class a run for its money. Tying everything together are extended, black wheel arches, off-road tires and rough-and-ready wheels.

Mind you, a few tuning companies have created Range Rover pickups, most notably Startech. The firm’s Range Rover-based pickup was introduced a few years ago, but even its modifications weren’t as comprehensive as those of the pictured Velar pickup.

    How ridiculous… if there’s a manufacturer that should introduce a new pickup, it’s Land Rover.

  • Adilos Nave

    He’s not wrong.

    Wow, this render actually looks decent! Better than some of the other renders we’ve seen of pickups.

  • I think Land Rover pickup should be limited to the Defender (or their replacement) series rather than making luxury pickup like an X-Class.

    Not a bad looking rendering. …
