Photo: Dacia Duster Pick-Up Imagined

Dacia's first-ever SUV, the Duster, has already caught the attention of car enthusiasts around the world and even managed to set a new record by becoming the world's cheapest SUV. The car is due to go on sale in several markets in the upcoming months, with Romania, Dacia's domestic market, to see the vehicle in all its glory on March 18.

Dacia hasn't mentioned whether it intends to use the Duster for several derivates, just like the Logan was for other models such as the MCV and the Pickup. However, Theophilus Chin from Malaysia created in Photoshop a preview of what seems to be a pick-up version of the Duster which, we must agree, looks better than the regular model.

Obviously, this is only a sketch, so we can't talk about a production version at this time. However, such a model equipped with an all-wheel drive system would probably be a serious contender for existing models in this particular class and sold under Ford's, Toyota's or others' badges.

The imagined Duster Pick-up provides enough room for only two passengers, but a four-seat configuration would probably make more sense.

As for the regular Duster, we told you yesterday that the car is already shipping in Romania, as trailers full of SUVs have been spotted leaving the main assembly plant in Mioveni. Dealers across the country revealed last month that interest for the Duster is impressively high, with several buyers already making deposits of over 1,000 Euros to reserve their car.
