The 2020 land rover defender has already been launched. The Ford Bronco is soon to descend on the market. The ford has given no clues about the official date of the upcoming off-road SUV, but there have been constant, and numerous leaks and the patent filings have given us a lot of information about what is still in the store.
The public is expecting a lot from the vehicles. But it may be quite simple if we look back to our quick visit to the Tokyo Motor Show, where the comparison was cheap as compared to what is available in the other lands. The Suzuki’s Jimmy isn’t new this year, and it got out just last summer in Japan. But it was a unique experience of the original metal and in the context of the Defender and Ford Bronco.
Suzuki is giving two variants on these, the standard Jimmy and an export friendly Jimmy Sierra in yellow. Both have got the same wheelbase, but the standard version is more compact. But the export version is 10 inches longer and wider to 6 inches as well.
The reason for the small Jimmy is a Kei car use in Japan, and so, it has to be a four-seater thing. The JDM< Jimmy comes with a 0.658 l turbocharged, three inline cylinders. It throws up a 63 U.S. horsepower and 70 lb-ft of torque. This was just the standard version. For the exports, the numbers go as high as 100 horsepower and 95 lb-ft, as the 1.5-liter I-4 powers it.
This makes Jimmy an old school jeep with the body on frame chassis. There is a five-speed manual transmission on the standard version, but there is also an optional four-speed transmission automatic. They both have been connected to the lever engaged AWD system with low ranges. Jimmy doesn’t care for the latest apple or android but still got a touch infotainment system.
There is also an AC standard version and cruise control. Power windows and lock are all standards of the range.
