The Kia Tasman is Kia's New Pick-Up Truck

The Kia Tasman is a future pickup vehicle that has been confirmed. The island of Tasmania, which is located at Australia’s southernmost point, served as the inspiration for the name. According to the firm, the pick-up will draw inspiration from Tasmania’s rough beauty and pioneering spirit, and the moniker itself conveys a spirit of exploration and adventure.

The company's first pick-up truck, the Kia Tasman, represents its entry into the worldwide C-segment pick-up truck market. According to the firm, the Tasman will revolutionise the idea of a lifestyle pickup and be more than simply a useful work companion. It will also blend versatility that is centered on the lifestyle with work-oriented capability.

The business intends to introduce the Tasman sometime in 2025. According to the company, this strategic approach aims to meet the specific needs and preferences of each region, taking into account things like the growing interest in outdoor activities in Korea, the robust market for pickup trucks in Australia, and the need for off-road vehicles in diverse terrains, including deserts, in Africa and the Middle East. The company hasn’t confirmed, but the model might eventually make its way to Indian markets.
It is anticipated that the Tasman pickup will be available with a 2.2-liter turbocharged CRDi diesel engine, producing torque of 450 Nm of torque and over 200 horsepower. An automated torque converter gearbox with four-wheel drive and multiple terrain settings is anticipated. Additionally, a V6 petrol engine may be added, and an all-electric model is anticipated to follow later.

It is anticipated that the Tasman will start at around Rs. 40 lakh (ex-showroom in international countries). The pickup truck will compete with the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max, VW Amarok, Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline, Nissan Navara, and other pick-up vehicles that are priced similarly when it is introduced globally.
