Hyundai Preparing All-New Medium-Duty Truck

Remember Bering?

The failure of Bering was due to Bill Anderson. I like Bill, and respected his UAZ imports. However, he had zero experience for the Hyundai light/medium truck project.

Offering Cummins power for the North American market was fine....I was good with that. But I would have introduced the trucks under the Hyundai brand.

Fast forward to today, Hyundai is scaring the socks off of Japan Inc. with its automobiles, and the Xcient heavy truck is world class. I know the product inside-out, and its design team. This new medium truck will be superb.

I seem to also remember some sort of scandal with Bering's U.S. distributorship.  A few of the trucks were sold here, I heard they seemed to be pretty good.  Thought they had a future.

Hyundai entrusted Anderson with U.S. management........and that was the cause of the brand's failure. The truck itself was fine.

Can Hyundai bring their Xcient heavy truck to the United States?  If not, why?

Yes, they could. Their Euro 6 engine can also meet US emissions.

Hyundai is contemplating bringing the Xcient to the states as a conventional (bonneted) cab truck.

It's being available here in Australia for over 12 months. & the latest Sales figures I've seen are they've only delivered 3 across the entire Country in that Time..!!

The Xcient is a superb heavy truck. In Oz, they don't know how to get started.
