Suzuki to offer a small pickup based on the Jimny?
According to Autoblog, Suzuki says it's considering offering a small pickup, possibly based on its next iteration of the subcompact Jimny 4x4, in the next few years.
The vehicle pictured above is the Suzuki X-HEAD concept, which first appeared in 2007. I would love to add a Jimny-based Suzuki 4x4 to my stable. In fact, assuming it was 1) offered with a manual tranmission 2) included at least a solid rear axle and 3) has a true 4WD system, I'd buy one as my next vehicle, so long as it retains its small proportions.
A lot of people went "head over heals" for the X-HEAD concept, now let's see if Suzuki can pull it off and actually sell something new and different enough to make some profit and make people turn to the brand in the U.S. market.
