BMW has recently gone on record to state that they currently have no plans to develop a pickup. While the company recognizes that dual cabs are extremely popular, they don't feel like they could deliver one at a price point that see high volume sales. Klaus Frolich, a board member of BMW's development team said the following.
"If you look at the pickup truck market, there is a focus on medium price points, in Germany anyway. At the higher end, the sales are very low."
"To do a proper pickup, you need a ladder frame platform, and a monocoque platform is compromised," Frolich said.
"I have only two architectures and we do not get a proper pick-up truck out of it. I also think that it's never profitable, the premium end of the market is very small in trucks."
