Those of you with a keen memory will remember the Kia KCV4 Mojave concept (see attached photos) originally introduced at the 2004 Chicago Auto Show. That was a medium-sized pick-up truck based on the Sorento with a 280 bhp V6 engine and an AWD arrangement. Now, it seems Kia is taking another stab at this segment through this concept.

Although we have our doubts about the origins of the render, the concept appears to be done recently as it takes cues from the GT4 Stinger concept show at last month's NAIAS. Whether Kia is really planning a pick-up truck concept or this is just the work of an independent designer, only time will tell.
