      2018 has been a very good year for Suzuki, first they had the Suzuki Swift Sport which shocked car journalists for how good it it, then they unveiled the Suzuki Jimny which is the car community's new baby. In fact, if people in Japan wants to order a Jimny, they need to wait for 3 weeks themselves because Suzuki dealerships can't get enough of them for the enormous demand.

      Hence why for the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon, Suzuki has made a Jimny that many want - a Jimny Sierra Pickup. Underneath the body lies the exact same drivetrain as in the JImny sold in every other part of the world - 1.5L inline four naturally aspirated engine with all sorts of offroad gadgets.

      However, on the outside, it's very different. Apart from the wide matte black wheel arches, Suzuki has wrapped the middle of Jimny with wood vinyl. A pair of chrome door mirrors and 4 spot lights are also put on to make sure the Jimny stands out among all the other exhibits. Oh and the bed of the pickup is added as well, to make it a...pickup.

      Of course, to put down all that 101hp on the dirt tracks, Suzuki has put some great big chunky rubbers round the white rims with chrome hub caps.

      Suzuki has also painted the Jimny in gold, which is a colour that you never see on normal Jimnys. Unfortunately, that is the end of the transformation of the Suzuki Jimny Sierra Pick Up Style...

      If the pickup is not your cup of tea, then consider the Jimny Survive. Since this lacks the matte black wheel arches, this is the kei car version of the Jimny, which features the 660cc turbocharged engine with a staggering 63hp. On the outside of this Jimny Survive, it's got a matte black body, some fancy graphics on the side, a skid plate on the front, many tow straps and tow hooks. There is also an exoskeleton in case of a roll over, a vintage roof box and some fancy alloys to make sure you're comfortable in the offroad environment.

      If you doesn't want to go offroad, you can go for the Swift Yellow Rev (don't ask, that's the actual name of the car). The Swift Yellow Rev features some black wheels, a black roof and a pair of black door mirrors. Suzuki has also put on some headlight cover to give it that extra aggression. Some stickers has also been put on the window, on the front bumper and the doors to make it racier.

      Unfortunately none of those cars are going into production. If you want to see these exhibits in person, they will be at the Tokyo Auto Salon in early January 2019. Be sure to check out Honda's and Daihatsu's exhibits too (Spoiler alert: They're very very 'interesting').

      • The Jimny is filling a gap in the market. An economical suv that is affordable to maintain and useful for everyday driving. Big expensive off road vehicles may be more comfortable and capable, but the cost of maintaining them is also very high.

        • Suzuki have been doing that since the launch of the Samurai in the 1970s

      • A pickup that fits about as much stuff as a Swift? Actually less, since Swift can fit four people AND a few things.

        People still cannot get past cute looks.

        • U know the old samurai got a version like this?? Short and long chasis, and pickup, and the people buy it!! And use it to carry stuff & work!! How crazy it is??

        • people buy all kinds of stuff. Doesn't change the fact there's no space nor power for a pickup

      • That pickup looks like a modern take in the original Toyota Land Cruiser

      • That’s certainly a great idea. I’m trying to think if they had one like this years ago before the Jimny. Prefer my memory rather than the inter thingy bob net. Seem to recall a more robust looking pick up from Suzuki similar to this but beefier, sort of. (kind of like an Austin Champ).

        • They had pickup versions of the sierra in Australia

        • Yeah. Thought so. LJ81 or something. Lots of creased panels and even a crew cab version (not sure that came to OZ) called a Sierra Samurai.
