Yup. You read that right. According to the folks at Edmunds, Hyundai made a statement yesterday that a pickup truck might be in the cards, but it won't be available for a long time.

The announcement by the Korean automaker comes the same day as a trade pact between the U.S. and Hyundai was announced. The pact, which we covered earlier, will lift tariffs on certain models, depending on engine displacement, over the course of the next few months and years.

Reuters quoted a Hyundai spokesperson as saying that, "We will conduct a feasibility study [on a pickup truck] as a long-term project." Again, such a project will be dependent on the elimination of financial restrictions, and considering that a tariff on models sporting three-liter or larger engines won't go away for another 10 years, you can expect to wait at least that long until you see one at your local Home Depot.
