2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Pickup Truck, a Rendering For the Urban Lumberjack

Yes, we know, the 2017 V90 Cross Country pickup truck pixel arrangement we have here is unreasonable. After all, if the Swedish automaker would decide to include a bed-wearing model in its line-up, this should be based on the XC90 SUV.

However, the part of the Volvo realm that has to do with drifting, street racing and other such hooning delicacies is just as unreasonable and yet this subculture, which obviously targets the carmaker's boxy era, is greater than you'd expect (check out the links and you'll understand).

Returning to the blue collar rendering we have here, this comes from digital artist X-Tomi, who apparently has a thing for Volvos these days - the man has also gifted us with a S90 Cross Country renderings, which you can find in the adjacent photo gallery.

Much to our pleasure, the rugged details of the actual car seem to have been closely followed, but there's just one issue here: the wheel and tire combo doesn't seem to be all that fit for hauling jobs.

Then again, this Volvo can be considered the Swedish version of Australia's UTE fetish. Follow this path and things suddenly start to make more sense. Yes, the urban lumberjack mentioned in the title above could choose this apparently impractical proposal over the jacked-up station wagon that can actually be found in Volvo showrooms much like many people chose coupes over the sedans the two-doors are based on.

And, thanks to the generous ground clearance and the premium interior, such a machine could deliver a pretty addictive set of feelings and emotions - the V90 Cross Country one-ups its just-a-wagon sibling by 2.5 inches of ground clearance, sitting at 8.4 inches.

Use your imagination to add the T8 hybrid powertrain, which delivers a meaty 400 horsepower, with 472 lb-ft of twist and you end up with a four-wheel proposal that might not seem so ridiculous after all.
