I find it interesting how Hyundai wants to jump in the light truck market.  Unless they do an amazing job, I think it will be hard for them to find a following.  It was be ultra niche like their already weird Hyundai Veloster.

They would want to aim this pickup to be practical and be a soft ball throw at the pickup segment like the Honda Ridgeline.  It definitely cannot compete with the Ram, Ford's and GM's of the world. 

It would be a light truck, and I would say it couldn't even compete with the Tacoma or Colorado.

Super light.  I mean, there is no way I can view the name Hyundai with a tough truck.  This would be al lifestyle pickup, much like the Subaru Baja was.  Remember that a decade ago?

Wow, I haven't thought of the Baja in years, but I totally remember it.  The successor to the Brat!  Now that was a funky little ute.

With Subaru's upcoming 7 passenger SUV, they could make another Baja on that platform... but I know they won't. ;D

A true Brat or Baja successor could be made on the Outback platform or for a Brat sized one, it could use the Forester.  Shame though since no one wants weird little pickups, or so we are told.

But do Americans?  Naw.

Subaru doesn't have the money for niche things like this unless they can duo construct it like they did the BRZ, or if it will bring back big returns.  They are lucky their raise impreza, renamed the Crosstrek is such a hit.  People will pay stupid amounts more for something that even hints at being a crossover.  The average buyer is kind of dumb.

In the gran scheme, Subaru is still a tiny company... though if you live on the West Coast you would never know since that is their biggest market.  All through granola and coffee country from Washington, down through Oregon, and into northern California into San Fran.  Subaru dominates their sales there.

Recently Subaru has been seeing gains on the New England front too, equally liberal. 

But the rest of the country, Subaru doesn't appeal to people as much.

It is like how Dodge is very popular in Canada, all FCA products, but in the USA, you don't see them nearly as much.  There are a lot, but not the per capita amount in Canada.  It's like every few cars in Canada will be an FCA vehicle, lol.

Unless Toyota wants to evolve their GT86, then no.  Subaru might restyle it a bit, but it will probably be the same car for a long time if they don't end it.
