A Rolls-Royce Pickup Truck? Yeah, Right – When Hell Freezes Over

Mercedes-Benz thought it was on to something when it launched the X-Class, but if a recent report is to be believed, the German automaker may have overestimated the demand for a premium mid-size pickup and could be considering dropping it.

Now, if the world isn’t ready for a Merc pickup, all hell will break loose if a more premium brand decides to go down that road. Like, say, Rolls-Royce…

The past decade has seen Rolls launch a host of successful new models such as the latest-generation Phantom and the smaller Ghost and Wraith.

The British marque has also dared enter the realm of SUVs with the Cullinan, and this rendering from Rain Prisk imagines what a Cullinan-based pickup truck could look like.

The pickup appears to have similar portions to the Rivian R1T, and to us, is a little more pleasing to the eye than the actual SUV. There is a spacious bed, an attractive spoiler stretching off the roof, suicide rear doors, and taillights lifted straight from the SUV. Adding to the vehicle’s appeal is an off-road-focused wheel and tire combo as well as a generous suspension lift kit.

Sure, a few extremely wealthy people who need a large utilitarian vehicle to care for their expansive properties could probably put a Rolls pickup to good use, but that’s about it. Launching an SUV is one thing – and it did cause quite a stir among Rolls’ loyal customers. A pickup, though? Probably when hell freezes over; or not even then.

  • THIS ACTUALLY LOOKS 10X BETTER THAN THE NASTY LOOKING CULLINAN.

    And you just planted the idea into the mind of someone with more money than sense, like Jon Olsson.

    Just wait until some middle eastern arab sheikh with unlimited oil funds gets the idea and places an order

    Porsche? Make an SUV? Ridiculous. Oops. Anything goes these days.

  • MarketAndChurch

    It’s a really good design. I wish there was a market offering that looked like this for under $35,000, w/o the suicide doors of course.

    So the Cullian just needs to be lifted to make it look better.

    Sooo…
