Let's start this list with something properly weird by imagining what would happen if Audi took an RS4 Avant and sliced off most of the roof to create a cargo bed. With room for just two people, there would probably be plenty of space in the back for hauling stuff. All-wheel drive and 444 horsepower should make the truck plenty of fun, too.
At least in the United States, Chevrolet is probably the most famous maker of utes because of the El Camino nameplate's life running from the 1959 to 1987 model years. This rendering imagines reviving the vehicle and using the Camaro as the basis for it. The idea is sound, but the Bowtie's pony car might not be around much longer.
Dodge actually offered a ute in the United States in the 1980s when it sold the Rampage, which shared elements with the contemporary Charger. The automaker even revived the idea with a recent Rampage concept sketch using the current Challenger as a starting point.
Budget Direct follows this same general approach as the sketch, except that it gives the rendering the front end from a Charger. The resulting vehicle looks mean, but don't expect a production version of the concept to happen.
The Ferrari Portofino forms the basis for this ute. This means that in addition to being able to load the back with cargo, the occupants could open the roof, too. The result would basically be the Prancing Horse's take on the failed Chevrolet SSR.
With its unibody structure, the Honda Ridgeline is already a ute in spirit, if not purely by definition. Budget Direct imagines the company going a different way by turning the Civic into a little truck. For something really wild, imagine a Type R version.
This modified Renault Megane wouldn't make a very big ute, so there would be limited cargo-hauling potential. However, Budget Direct uses the high-performance RS as the basis for this rendering, meaning the little truck would offer 275 horsepower (205 kilowatts). At least the vehicle would be lots of fun.
Rolls-Royce doesn't have much of a history as a maker of utility vehicles, outside of rare exceptions like the company's World War I-era armored car. This rendering shows what would happen if someone takes a Wraith coupe and overhauls the body to create a ute. The result is fairly attractive. It would offer the ability to haul bags of mulch in the back while experiencing opulence in the cabin.
Tesla has the Cybertruck on the way, but this rendering imagines the company making a pickup with styling cues from the forthcoming, second-generation Roadster. It's a very different look for the company's carry-all model, and probably wouldn't draw nearly as much interest from the general public. Whether the styling appears to you or not, the Cybertruck looks like no other new vehicle on the way.
