The Holden Colorado will manage those looking for true utility, but the charming, two-door Commodore ute will be long gone come 2017. If there were an automaker we’d think to fill this void, it certainly wouldn’t be a German one. Nor, a premium, German brand at that.
Motoring reports BMW is watching the ute space “closely”, after BMW Australia Managing Director, Marc Werner, made some intriguing comments.
“Never say never,” said Werner at this week’s BMW M3/M4 Competition launch in Queensland.
“We’re watching the space closely.”
Granted, a BMW ute would likely play closer to a traditional pickup truck, but these are strange times indeed. BMW stated the lack of a commercial division plays a factor into a proper ute introduction, but the report states its close relationship with Toyota could make a Hilux-based ute more of a reality.
