New Scion Car based pick-em-up

23 posts in this topic

Rad...I wonder if Toyota has considered building a Ridgeline competitor off the Highlander or other CUV? GM could definitely do one, a pickup based off the Traverse, call it El Camino.

That'll beat both the Ford Sport Trac, and H2 SUT for the 'vehicle with the most useless box evar' prize.

Yep, they've sold like 8 of them.

I think I may have seen one on the road. I did see 4 on top of a car hauler recently.

Off topic, but did Hummer ever build an H3 SUT?

I don't think they've ever made an SUT, as in, an H3 with the rear window cut out and a midgate added. But the H3T (traditional pickup truck) is out.

Man, GM better find a way to get the Ute here and fast. You just know at least one rag will herald this...thing as the new El Camino.

You guys can guess what I think of this.

But what I find interesting are the comments in the linked thread.

- Calls for making it RWD

- Positive expressions of their being a market for such a vehicle

- An entreaty that it be built on a full frame.

Not what I would have expected on a Scion fansite.

Stehrenberger (tho excellent as usual) is still drawing exactly the same manner he did in the '80s.

Except for the rubber-band tires & 24"s, this looks like it could've been drawn in 1985.

Cute in a way, ugly in many more, useless in every way.

Calls for frames & RWD are ridiculous- how much could anyone pile in a 6 SQ FT bed ????

True.

But the fact that those calls come from Scion fans remains interesting... and unexpected.

I wish that GM would build something like the Original S-10 trucks. I owned two and they were both wonderful...100K ++ use out of both trucks....bought a muffler for one once...other than that just normal maint.

Both were 4 Cyl 5 Speed trucks, and both ran 30+ (usually about 32) MPG in mixed driving.

As a 4WD, they are an awesome truck for a little slippin and sliding in the dirty stuff...esp. with a 4.3.

THAT is my idea of a small truck. Also liked the rampage and Rabbit truck...both were decent small trucks, esp. the Rampage.

Not sure I would brag about getting more than 100k miles out of a vehicle. It's honestly not worth commenting about the life of a vehicle until it's past 200k, and that's still not saying much. 250k+ starts getting impressive, 300k+ is true bragging rights. IMO, if a vehicle can't last more than 200k miles with only a couple minor repairs (like an alt) and regular maintenance, that's pretty sad.
