Skoda’s apprentices have been cooking up something special at the company’s vocational school in Mladá Boleslav: a fierce adventure machine that took 2,000 hours to bring to life. One look at the Skoda Mountiaq Pickup Truck Concept will make you want to get behind the wheel for backcountry excursions.
Based on the Kodiaq mid-size SUV, the Mountiaq is built with seating for two, an open bed with a hidden compartment and illumination, and a fully-functional tailgate to make for easy hauling and storage. It’s powered by a 2.0L TSI petrol four capable of 187 horsepower, providing you with more than enough muscle for journeys off the beaten path. It’s also equipped with a front bull-bar, snorkel intake, roof-mounted light bar, winch, and 170-inch Rockstar II wheels wrapped with off-road tires. Take a look inside and you’ll find a built-in refrigerator so you can enjoy some cold beverages while you blast tunes via the 2,000-watt subwoofer. Unfortunately, this is purely a concept vehicle, but maybe it will influence the production automobiles Skoda produces in the future.
