View Full Version : Suzuki X-Head concept
10-04-2007, 05:25 PM
Suzuki has released a few photos of a vehicle
they built for the 2007 Tokyo auto show
It's about 12 feet long, 4x4, powered by a 1300cc
Chance of seeing it in USA is zero, but it's an
interesting concept. Sorta like a 3/4 scale version
of an old Dodge A100 or Jeep Forward Control.

these things are fun!

Those storage shelves integrated into the truck bed are genius. Why some of the "big" manufacturers haven't capitalized on that concept is beyond me.

I dig it. I would definitely buy one.

At first...no. Then once I started looking...well, maybe. Same thing I said about my Frontier CC when I saw them come out on the market.
Not sure I like the color though.

Neat truck. I like one. Maybe not in that green, but a nice black or white one would be cool.

12 feet long so... 144" total length, that's gotta give it somewhere around a 100" wheelbase right? And in that last picture posted by Zoojunkie, it's coil-sprung solid axles at both ends.
That might be just the right size, now that I think about it. Where do I sign up?

Hummmm looks familiar don't it?

Hey, that front end makes it look like a "mini-'Mog!"
Very cool! I like it! With gas prices going the way they are I think this is a smart way to go - find a way to do more with less!
Now they need to come up with a convertible SUV version (by convertible I mean something similar in concept to the Chevy Avalanche - somthing that can go from a 4 passenger SUV to a pickup and back again.)
EDIT: A 1300cc gas engine from Suzuki? Sounds familiar. Could it be a version of the Hayabusa motor? Normally I wouldn't think of a motorcycle engine as being a good thing in a truck but maybe with the right tuning and transmission it could work.

suzuzki's been running that engine forever. It's the 1.3 liter that was in the samurai (which I have in my yard) and in thier swift.. the 1.3 with dual overhead cams brought the best bang for buck.. About 31mpg on the hwy... Just couldn't go much faster than 70 on the downside...

Also from the Tokyo show, The Mud Master - not likely arriving on North American shores any time soon.
