Suzuki will unveil a Jimny Sierra Pickup Style concept version of its diminutive off-road SUV at the Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan.

The reworked version of the high-capability 4x4 that will be shown at the January 11-13 event features a rear pickup truck platform in place of the rear seats and boot, with the ride height of the machine also jacked up further.

The new concept features a number of design changes, including a retro-styled front grille that evokes previous generations of Jimny along with a pair of front tow hooks. Suzuki says it also features custom ‘individual’ design details, including a yellow paint that features a wood panel effect in places. 

The firm has also developed another variant of the SUV called the Jimny Survive, which is intended as an even more extreme off-road vehicle.

As well as a raised ride height it features bigger tyres, steel plates on the front and rear bumpers, guards protecting the headlights and a rod rack that features protective bars extending down the Jimny’s window pillars. 

Suzuki has given no indications if there are plans for either machine to make production. The Tokyo Auto Salon is Japan’s largest modified and tuned car show, making it likely the two Jimny variants will remain one-off concepts.

Suzuki Jimny Pickup

Looks pretty good the load bed could be a bit longer,strip the cosmetic bits of it,the vehicle could be useful addition to the Suzuki range. There could be a gap between the ATV based pickups and the full size offerings on the market today.

Congratulations on mediocrity

congratulations Suzuki! You’ve achieved the very best of mediocrity. 

You copy the style sheets for story telling from GMH and others. (“Sierra”, original! Not). You then take Jeep’s heritage theme. But know where have you inspired or shown innovation. 

When are you going to improve your safety features, axle or engine?
