According to reports, Nissan’s high-end division is about to enter the pickup truck market. The most recent reports are saying the 2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck is coming at some point later in 2022. No one from Infiniti said what they thought about the brand’s first-ever pickup truck. Therefore, we should be careful. This is pure speculation, despite reports are coming from reputable sources.
There are a lot of options for this truck. We don’t know if the Infiniti Pickup Truck will arrive as a full-size model. On the other hand, the compact pickup truck segment is growing with models such as Hyundai Santa Cruz and Ford Maverick entering the race. Reports are saying that Infiniti plans to build a new truck on a unibody chassis and we expect a lot of luxury, especially inside the cabin.
Infiniti Pickup Truck Exterior Design
Reportedly, the new 2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck will be a full-size model. This makes sense because Nissan already makes the Titan. As a result, the mechanical parts of the Infiniti Pickup Truck would be very similar. On top of that, we also expect to see the same powertrain options and a lot more. There’s one thing that we think will be completely unique about the look of the truck. A lot of people know Infiniti for making high-quality and stylish SUVs.
Latest rumors say that a crew cab will be the only cab option available. We can’t rule out other ways to set up the cabs. Whether or not Infiniti will use the same design style as the QX line of SUVs and crossovers. It could also be a surprise from the manufacturer. Besides that, the truck will look good and it will have a lot of nice things inside, like the cabin.
The brand-new 2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck is sure to have a luxurious interior. Everything on the inside is very modern, and we also expect a high level of comfort. So this new pickup truck will probably borrow a lot of things from models like the QX80 SUV. Infiniti will also deliver a spacious cabin with ample legroom, even for the rear occupants. As we said before, a crew cab configuration is the most likely thing to happen.
The QX80 model has a lot of new technology in it. The new model will have an upgraded version of the InTouch infotainment system, as well as the latest safety aids. It comes with two 8-inch touchscreens and an entertainment system in the back seats. We think that the new Infiniti Pickup Truck will have the same high-tech features as the QX80 SUV, although a couple of things will be different for sure.
When it comes to powertrain options, it should be easy to predict the engine lineup. For a start, the manufacturer will not develop a completely new engine, because it’s too expensive. Instead, the new 2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck will borrow an engine from trucks such as Nissan Titan and Nissan Frontier.
We are thinking about a 3.8-liter V6 gasoline engine that produces up to 310 horsepower. Optionally, this model could get a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine. However, if we are dealing with a full-size truck, then a 5.6-liter V6 engine with 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque is the most likely outcome.
2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck Release Date, Price
The 2023 Infiniti Pickup Truck is still just a rumor, and we haven’t heard any words about this model. While it makes perfect sense, the new model is still not so certain to happen. Naturally, the price is not available. On the other hand, many reports are predicting late 2022 as the most likely launch date.
