Suzuki has some strong card ahead of this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon that starts on January 11. The Japanese automaker will introduce two awesome concepts which are based on the amazing Jimny SUV. The pint-sized body-on-frame four-wheel-drive nameplate made its official appearance in 2018 and it pretends to become carmaker’s bestseller, so it’s not odd at all why they decided to exploit the popularity in form of a pair of Jimny concepts. One of them is the Suzuki Sierra Pickup Style and the other is the Jimny Survive SUV.
Of course, the compact pickup comes in form of a 4×4 model capable for some serious off-roading. It has been fitted with a retro grille and a pair of two hooks. The automaker decided to use an old-school logo in the front, while the rear end hosts an interesting tailgate with four LED spotlights which are here in order to illuminate the path. We can’t skip mentioning the interesting fake wood trim at sides. Although the details seem quite winsome, we have to say that they belong to the iconic Jeep Wagoneer. Compared to its SUV sibling, the Suzuki Sierra Pickup Style concept sports brawnier fenders without any doubt, while we can bet that the automaker lifted ride height as well.
On the other hand, the Suzuki Jimny Survive concept provides an ample arsenal of off-road kit. In addition to Jimny’s standard equipment, the SUV packs a raised ride height and knobby off-road tires. There is a steel bumper in the front that has been fitted with two hooks, while the headlights feature guards protect. The Survive SUV also gets steel skid plates and an external roll cage.
Suzuki hasn’t provided any information regarding the performance of the vehicles, but we suspect that both of them are going to arrive paired with pretty much the same options as the regular Jimny. Meaning, you can expect a 660-cc turbocharged inline-3 and a 1.5-liter inline-4.
There’s no word whether the concepts are going to reach production lines or not, but we hope they are.
Stay tuned for updates.
