The concept also highlights automaker’s first use of 3D-printed components, which add a distinct, modern design element to the dashboard, door panels, and steering wheel.

    The interior looks a lot better than the Cross GT concept. The exterior reminds me of a Range Rover with some Kia Soul in it. I like the name. It sounds very aggressive and competitive like the other premium mid size SUVs. I hope it is RWD. I do like the new name too. It sounds aggressive. “Mojave” name still king of all truck names though. I loved that name.

    Mojave does rock as a pickup name.
