BMW has turned the X7 into a pickup truck! But it's not going to be produced.

This one-off concept was designed by students for 10 months in the BMW Group Vocational Training program and will be shown at BMW's Motorrad Days.

It definitely screams Cadillac Escalade EXT but it's a very cool design, especially for a group of students.





According to BMW:

"Behind the passenger cabin providing five persons with a luxury ambience, the BMW X7 Pick-up offers a generous loading area. The length of the loading space varies from 140 cm (closed) to 200 cm (open). Thanks to the intelligent use of CFRP on roof components, rear doors and the rear lid, it was possible to further reduce weight by 200 kg vs. the production model, despite a 10 cm longer body. In interplay with the high-quality, handcrafted teakwood cladding of the loading area upgrade and the parapet elements, handgrips and trim strips made from SLS 3D pressure parts, it becomes clear just how much innovative strength, competence and technical precision the trainees already display. The combination of honey-coloured teakwood and the BMW Individual colour Tanzanite Blue metallic - an exclusive navy blue finish that develops extra depth when exposed to sunlight - was inspired by yachting sports and creates a sophisticated look."

Here's another rendering of a BMW pickup truck from designer Rain Prisk who turned the X7 pickup into a two-door instead of four. Of the two I think I'd go with this one because it looks more off-road capable.

Not only to just see it but to explore the potential for aftermarket companies.

It could very well be the first time we see off-road BMW modifications become a thing.
