Kia's First-Ever Pickup Truck Is Called Tasman

Kia has confirmed the name of its first-ever pickup truck: the Tasman.

Selected from a pool of names sourced from Kia’s global markets, ‘Tasman’ was initially proposed by Kia Australia and ultimately chosen for its connection to the Tasman Sea and Dutch explorer Abel Tasman, who discovered the rugged landscapes of Tasmania. Each of these elements lends itself to a spirit of enduring toughness, grit, and resilience, reflecting the rugged character and matching capabilities of the Kia Tasman.

Not much has been confirmed about the Tasman, but it will be designed with a range of “work, trade, and leisure pursuits” in mind. Said to be the size of a Ford Ranger or Toyota Hilux, it will ride on a body-on-frame architecture and will be offered with a variety of powertrains, including diesel options.

The global reveal is slated for sometime in 2025 and will be released for several markets including South Korea, Australia, and even the Middle East.
