The diminutive Suzuki Jimny SUV seems to be a perfect candidate for a ute conversion thanks to its rugged ladder-frame chassis and genuine off-road ability.
Though Suzuki has teased an open-tray version of the Jimny before and could build such a version if interest is high enough, a new rendering from Kolesa.ru puts a different spin on the mooted tiny Japanese ute.
Don’t expect the theoretical Jimny pick-up to match the Toyota HiLux or Ford Ranger for towing capability or load capacity though, as the Suzuki is powered by 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine delivering just 75kW of power and 130Nm of torque.
The ute would expectedly still be underpinned by Suzuki’s ‘AllGrip Pro’ four-wheel-drive (4WD) system with low-range transfer case to ensure traction when the bitumen ends.
