It will be interesting to see if this concept car makes it to production in some form.

I love it, I still miss my El-Camino. It is tough to judge the scale from the pictures but it looks like it would make a great motorhome tow. I am pretty sure my wife wouldn't be caught dead in it though.

I like it. But I liked the Isuzu VehiCross too.

If they do a low-priced no frills car then they will sell a million of them. Lots of people want a beater with some exterior storage without the heavy truck chassis.

The BRAT already returned a couple of years ago, it was called a Subaru Outback BAJA.



Just cause it is a car with a truck bed doesn't mean it should be badged a BRAT. Is this a BRAT?

or this

Jump to 17:45 for info on the it.

It comes with a 2.0 turbo diesel with high 30 MPG!

Bed extends, and they are marketing this to hipsters...I mean "urban adventurers".

I'd consider it, but would need 4 doors and the ability to tow, say 5k lbs.

Without the rear jump seats, it's just a pretender.

It looks like a Korean Ridgeline maxi cab.

It's a bummer these small diesels are catching on after all the emissions mandates on diesel. This certainly takes some attraction of a simple diesel coupled to a simple drivetrain away.

My mind drifts to older grey market imports that will likely do better for less.

......and be a whole lot cooler.

Coming from a guy who didn't like the baja, but does like a good brat mostly for the rearward facing seats in the bed, a manual trans and a manual transfer case. Those old subies can pull numbers that rival that......so in the end....not that impressive.....unless it meets a nice price point, which those crazy Koreans have a reputation for doing.

Assuming the turbo diesel even makes it here, and doesn't become a Euro only pipe dream for us mericans.

Yup, if they still made 'em exactly the same they'd sell now IMHO...
