Check out this beautiful rendering of MG Hector-based pickup truck, complete with a video of the entire designing process.
A while back, IndianAuto had brought you a marvellous-looking Hyundai Creta, digitally-modified into a pickup truck. Now, we have brought you a similar digital product, but this time based on the MG Hector. The video below shows the designing process behind this excellent digital endeavour.

The MG Hector pickup truck is the product of the imagination of Shoeb R Kalania, IndianAutosBlog’s expert digital illustrator. IAB, regular readers would remember, is the sister publication of IndianAuto. In the video above, we see the artist pick a stock image of an MG Hector. He begins the design by lifting the car a few inches for added ground clearance. After that, the rear section of the car’s cabin is deleted, making way for the loading bed at the back. Next, the Hector loses its rear doors, and even the greenhouse area is reduced by a great extent.
Next, we see the addition of rollover protection bars for the pickup’s bed. These are mechanical structures that offer strength and stability of the truck’s chassis, and prevent the car from being crushed if it rolls over and lands upside down. They also give the vehicle a brute and macho look due to their exposed-frame look. After that, a pair of roof rails gets installed on the car. The front bumper, rear bumper, and the wheel arches are all given a touch of plastic cladding. New wheels are added, larger ones, to better fit the car. A small vent is then added above the front wheel arches. The last addition to the car is a side step, which completes the utilitarian look!
You might have noticed that apart from shortening the car’s rear passenger cabin, the rear doors have also been deleted. Even the loading bed doesn’t seem to be too big. This kind of body style is commonly known as an ‘extended cab with short bed’ in the US, where pick-up trucks are extremely popular.
As with all digital renderings, the MG Hector pickup still retains the stock engines. The regular Hector SUV is available with two engines, a 1.5-litre petrol unit and a 2.0-litre diesel one. The petrol motor can also be had with an optional mild-hybrid system.
