The KCV4 Mojave concept vehicle is Kia’s first attempt at a pickup truck of any kind. Based on a their Sorento SUV, the concept is designed with an extended cab and comes with a 3.8L 24V DOHC V6 capable of 280hp.
Peter M. Butterfield, President and CEO of Kia Motors America, made this statement to the press:
“The idea behind the Mojave project was to take advantage of Kia’s research and development resources and create a concept vehicle that is closely aligned with Kia’s positioning in North America. Despite the fact that we do not currently have a factory with the capacity, or the location, to manufacture this truck, the Mojave is an outstanding example of what Kia is capable of delivering, and will allow us to conduct consumer research at the Chicago International Auto Show to gauge consumers’ reactions.”
