Premium lifestyle pickups in Nepal

The pickup is not a go-to vehicle for most Nepalis looking for premium-segment automobiles. However, premium pickups do seem to be the perfect match for those who want to explore rough terrain, but in a vehicle that is armed with premium features. Premium lifestyle pickups allow you to haul heavy loads over rough terrain, without your needing to worry about messing up a luxurious interior–unlike in other premium SUVs. 

That is why, for those seeking an adventurous lifestyle, a premium pickup’s rugged sensibility, great road presence, comfortable seating and amenities, and easily accessible storage space all work to make premium pickups a great draw. 

Here are the popular premium pickups available in Nepal.
