Pickups first emerged in 1928 with an unofficial modified version of the original Ford Model T, however it wasn’t until the 1960s when (mainly US) manufacturers became alerted to the high-demand for a vehicle that offered benefits for both work and leisure.
In the last ten years, pickups have begun to steadily increase their share of the market in the UK, which has resulted in the arrival of several impressive models available to lease.
Pickup leases provide you with all the traditional benefits of a commercial vehicle such as extra storage, a spacious cabin, the latest technology and tremendous versatility for all-terrain driving.
The recently launched Mercedes X Class is considered one of the best examples of a modern pickup; retaining tough off-road qualities combined with luxury, power and the best technology and safety features. Otherwise, The Ford Ranger has received high-praise in the motoring press, the Nissan Navara offers powerful design coupled with some of the best new technology, while Volkswagen’s Amarok has one of the largest loading bays of any pickup in modern history.
