When sending text messages or posting Facebook statuses, have you ever wanted to post a pickup truck emoji? Currently, there is no pickup emoji, but this could be changing soon. The pickup emoji may be coming to a phone near you
Ford has spent over 100 years creating pickup trucks. The automaker noticed that, when it comes to transportation emojis, the lack of a pickup truck option is a problem. That is why Ford is creating a pickup truck emoji this World Emoji Day.
“When customers started demanding a truck emoji, we knew we had to help make it happen,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of automotive. “Given the popularity of Ford trucks globally, there’s no one better than Ford to help bring an all-new pickup truck emoji to hard-working texters around the globe.”
In 2018, Ford submitted its proposal to the Unicode Consortium, which is an organization that reviews and approves proposals for new emojis. The pickup truck has been short-listed as a candidate for inclusion in a future version of Unicode. The emoji’s concept is styled with current trends in mind. The pickup is expected to be fresh, stylish, and modern. If the pickup truck emoji is approved in early 2020, the design will be customized for all mobile platforms.
