Mid-range DC pickups priced between Rs 55-75 lakh

The DC pickup’s presence on Nepali roads is increasing by the day. Be it for government official use or personal use, the pickup–owing to its reliability in terms of hauling, towing, and off-roading capabilities–is widely admired. Furthermore, this vehicle type’s rugged sensibility, great road presence, comfortable seating and amenities, and easily accessible storage space make it extremely popular among those who are seeking an adventurous lifestyle.

While most entry-level DC pickups are made solely for commercial purposes, mid-range DC pickups are perfect for those seeking adventure. In this category, models such as the Tunland DC, Hi-Lander, and V-Cross, among others, are the most popular pickups available in Nepal.
