You don’t typically think of automakers being the ones to make aftermarket customs of their vehicles—they just put new versions into production and add them to the lineup. Suzuki isn’t doing that with their Jimny. Scheduled to debut at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon, the custom Jimnys will come in two varieties: the Jimny Survive, an offroader designed for rough terrain; and a pickup version of the Sierra.
The Sierra Pickup Style uses the wide-body model of the Jimny. It’s equipped with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine. It comes with a beefed-up bumper with two hooks and a body-coloured grille. The sides are adorned with wooden panels, and LED lights on the roof will light up any road or work area.
There aren’t any details about the size of the bed, but Suzuki imagines the Sierra as a mini workhorse–you won’t be hauling a ton of gravel, but you can fit in your equipment. No doubt the rear seat was removed to make room for the bed, so this won’t be hauling all your friends either. It has a lift kit already installed, and comes with knobby tires. There also appears to be a roll cage. T
he wheels are chrome-capped and sit beneath flared wheel arches.
There’s still a question of where this concept vehicle will be offered—it may or may not come to Australia.
