Everything's better with a pickup bed. We asked you which new SUVs deserve to have a pickup variant. As always, there were a ton of responses, but here are the answers we saw repeated the most.
The chances of Suzuki bringing the new Jimny to the the US are basically nonexistent, but it would still be great to see a pickup version become a reality. All that utility in such a small package? Perfect.
The Cullinan is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious SUVs on the planet. With more customers wanting luxury features in their pickups, we're curious how well a cut version of the Cullinan would do on today's market. Probably not too badly.
Anyone that loves adventure is familiar with the Land Cruiser. It's the vehicle you take if you need to venture out into the wilderness and count on to make it back in one piece. Toyota's made pickup versions of the Land Cruiser before, but stopped. We'd love for them to start again.
If you need an SUV but also want to drive a fun car, the CX-5 is a great compromise. But some people need more than just a big trunk, which is why a CX-5 pickup would be the perfect addition to Mazda's lineup.
If you're going to shake up the world of pickup trucks, what could be more out of left field than the Citroen Cactus? It doesn't just have weird styling—it's also French. Still, the Cactus has a cool vibe that not many other SUVs can offer. It would make for a quirky little pickup truck, and we'd love to see it.
Dodge already has a handful of great pickup trucks in its lineup, but we still think a pickup Durango would be a solid edition. It would be even better if the company gave us an SRT edition. The world needs more fast pickups.
We already know a Wrangler pickup truck is coming, but what if you want a truck that's a little more refined? We think the Grand Cherokee would be perfect for filling that slot in Jeep's lineup. With a high-end interior and already-excellent off-road capabilities, it would be the Jeep pickup truck for discerning buyers.
Subaru refuses to build us a new Baja pickup, which is a shame. Cutting the hatch off a Crosstrek would be perfect for people looking to get the most out of their outdoor adventures.
Going on explorations into the unknown wilderness is a lot easier when you have a Bentayga. You know what would make it even more convienent? Having a pickup bed to throw all of your dirty boots and supplies in so you don't have to get the Bentayga's lovely carpeting or leather dirty.
The Range Rover could make for a perfectly capable luxury pickup truck, but we have a feeling the customer base would revolt if that happened. The Discovery, on the other hand, feels much better-suited for pickup duty. It has a more-utilitarian look that also happens to lend itself perfectly to whacking the back half of the roof and replacing it with an open bed.
We're happy to see midsize pickup trucks make their return to the U.S., but one of the biggest problems with the current selection is that they're as big as full-size trucks were a generation or two ago. An all-wheel-drive CUV that's small and a little cheeky like the Mini Countryman would be perfect for light-truck duty.
Volvo's been doing big things with the XC90. We say it should take a chance and offer it in truck form, too. It'd be the only go-anywhere, do-anything pickup truck with refined, reserved Swedish style. Imagine how badass it would look on 40-inch mudders.
With all that torque the Model X has, you might as well be able to put it to use hauling more than groceries. Graft a bed on the back, and there you go. You have the fastest, snootiest truck on the market. Just don't try towing anything beyond, say, your cul-de-sac. The last thing any Tesla owner wants is to need a tow from a good old-fashioned diesel.
