It would be crazy, but a truck made of Lamborghini would be simply madness

Lamborghini, the Italian supercar manufacturer, designed a military vehicle dubbed the Cheetah mainly for oil exploration and production. The US Army was even given the chance to test it, but the Army never used it.

Since this plan for Lambo was canceled, they simply developed a production SUV from the lessons they learned while working on the Cheetah. A truly ridiculous SUV was created by using the V12 from the Countach, permanent 4WD, a sand-lip on the tires, and locking differentials.

The LM002 was Lamborghini's attempt to create a luxury SUV, but it was more utilitarian than luxurious. In today's world, SUVs are more popular than ever before.

Lamborghini returned to SUVs with the Urus in 2018 after experimenting with a concept car in 2014. Despite the Urus being an incredibly successful SUV, what if Lamborghini produced a pickup truck? Now you don't have to wonder, as HotCars has done it for you, thanks to Timothy Adry Emmanuel, a digital artist.

Consider the scenario where Lamborghini decides to create a pickup truck out of the blue. First of all, the automaker has never built a platform before, so they don't have a platform to build the new vehicle on.

They marketed the LM002 as a luxury SUV, but it was technically a pickup truck, so they filled the 'truck bed' with seats and railings so you could ride on the beach while driving a V12-powered SUV. Lambo has only one possible platform to choose from, which is the VW Amarok underpinning the new Ford Ranger.

We Can't-Wait To Get Our Hands On These 10 Sickest Upcoming Pickup TrucksEven though it's a truck, it still has Lamborghini styling. Lamborghini's cars are always known for the bright colors they wear beautifully.

It shows Lambo's latest styling efforts and is influenced by Sian. Additionally, it seems to have inherited the Urus' doors, but from the rear, it is a pickup truck. The artist has done a wonderful job of making the piece all blend, and it doesn't look half bad at all.

The pickup truck's powertrain is capable of three different routes, according to Lamborghini. The simplest and most obvious is to simply replace the V8 under the Urus hood. The Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that develops 641 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque.

Pickup trucks and SUVs have healthy numbers, too. This pickup would not only make it a serious contender against the Ford F-150 Raptor and the upcoming Raptor R, but also against the RAM TRX, which Ken Block used recently to tear up the desert.

Alternatively, Lamborghini could adapt one of the other Volkswagen Group powertrains to work with the pickup truck. Lamborghini might also integrate a mild hybrid or even plug-in hybrid component with the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 found in cars such as the Audi RS4 and Porsche Macan.

Powertrains with this kind of flexibility can handle good amounts of power and work well in practically every application. A recent Porsche Macan GTS, which replaced the Macan Turbo, produces 434 horsepower.

It gives 444 horsepower to the current RS4 and RS5, and 444 horsepower to the current RS5. Furthermore, if the Lambo pickup is based on the VW Amarok platform, it could simply use the same powertrains that power the Amarok.

Lastly, Lambo could just make it all-electric with the way things are going right now in the auto industry. There would be a huge increase in weight, but there would also be a huge increase in pulling power and efficiency, without being harmful to the environment.

The Ford Lightning and the Rivian R1T, which we also love, are near the Rivian R1. Our best guess is that Lamborghini will build a vehicle that competes against the RAM TRX, the Ford F-150 Raptor, and to a lesser extent.

The Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. It would be awesome if Lamborghini built a pickup to compete with those off-roaders.

Yes. It shouldn't come as a surprise, considering a pickup truck would be so different from what everyone knows Lamborghini for, it would be economically impossible for them.

Nevertheless, it is interesting to speculate as Lamborghini is still making tractors and agricultural equipment today, and they do have access to a pickup truck platform. It's unlikely that they will do so, but if they wanted to, they could.

Dreams are always possible. In the real world, Lamborghini recently celebrated passing 20,000 models out of the factory, and they are preparing a facelifted version of the Urus.
