World's smallest pickup
Highlights included a test drive of the world's smallest pickup ù the "Mighty Boy" from Suzuki. "It's selling like hotcakes. We can't get them fast enough," reported Geoff Garnder, Suzuki's area sales manager. Priced about $4,000, the sporty fun machine features a 543cc, 4 stroke, 3 cyl. watercooled engine, and manual or automatic transmission. It's 10 ft. long, 4¢ ft. wide and 4? ft. high. The 450-pound capacity cargo bed is wider (4 ft.) than it is long (26 in.). Suzuki is already marketing its mini jeep, the Samari, in the U.S. and may import the Mighty Boy once supply catches up with booming demand, an official told FARM SHOW. It's a winner ù easy to drive, easy to park, cheap to run and a real eye catcher.
