Tata Safari as a pick-up truck is something that automobile enthusiasts secretly desire unknowingly until you see one. Glancing through these images, it is not too hard to imagine why. The culture of lifestyle off-roading vehicles has seen considerable growth in the Indian automobile market with products like Mahindra Thar, Force Gurkha and Isuzu V-Cross. This iteration of the Safari will trigger the off-roader in you and you might feel inconquerable. The convenience of knowing that you can take such a truck anywhere across the country is something very reassuring. Let us take a look at these images in detail to extract the unique elements.
Tata Safari Pick-Up Truck – Design
Pick-up trucks are supposed to be muscular, tall, rugged and massive. These images reflect all these things and more. While the front-end features an all-black theme in the grille, bumpers, bonnet line, smoked headlamp units, skid plates along with the typical modern LED DRLs on the top and headlamps on the bottom with the fog lamps. The side profile is accentuated by the massive alloy wheels with high profile tyres typically required in the off-roading scenarios, Sporty Roof Rails, Side Steps along with a raised suspension setup to clear any obstacles in the form of rough and uneven terrain which such vehicles often find themselves on. The rear features curved LED taillamps connected together by a glass strip. This gives the SUV an extremely modern rear profile along with curves on the boot lid.
With the trend of lifestyle off-roading vehicles becoming more prevalent day by day, it won’t be such a shock if any SUV-making company tries to build something like this in the future. However, we have to be content with just these imagined images for now.
