Pickup Truck

A pickup truck or pick-up, often simply referred to as a pickup, is a light motor vehicle with an open-top, rear cargo area (bed).

In North America, the term pickup is used only for light trucks, while in other parts of the world it includes coupé utility vehicles, based on car chassis. Some countries have their own terms similar to pickup, such as ute in Australia and New Zealand, or bakkie in South Africa.

Pickup trucks are rare in Europe, likely because vans are commonly used for similar roles.
