2019 Suzuki Jimny Doesn’t Want To Miss Out On The 6×6 Party

So far, the all-new Jimny has been turned into a pickup truck by Suzuki for the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon, while independent tuners have released kits to make it look like miniaturized Mercedes-Benz G-Class or Land Rover Defender.

These transformations should be good enough for most Jimny fans, but what about a 6×6 derivative? Well, if money is the least of your concerns, then you could turn pretty much any vehicle out there into a 6×6, the new Suzuki Jimny included.

To our knowledge, nobody has done that yet, but we’re guessing some tuner will eventually create a 6×6 that should look similar to this rendering by SRKDesigns. The digital interpretation of the Suzuki Jimny 6×6 adds fender flares, steel bumpers, new side skirts, roof rack, and an open bed behind those rear seats.

With chunky off-road tires and and other features like a winch, a six-wheel drive Suzuki Jimny would no doubt win a lot of stares on (or off) the road, but is that really worth all the trouble and costs associated with such a conversion?

    is that really worth all the trouble and costs associated with such a conversion?
    Given some of the shit that actually makes it to production, I would say, yes.

      Quite so !

    Suzuki makes shitty cars. Why is everyone going crazy over the idea of a new Jimmy? Did you want the old Jimmy? Do you even see any old ones on the road? They sucked. They were horrible. Most people are jumping on the Jimmy bandwagon because they want to spit on the Wrangler because they are no longer cheap.

      Exactly. 95% of people saying, they would buy it are just lying to themselves and the others. They did not see it in person, did not test drive it, nothing. They just like the boxy design. Americans especially do not even have the idea of how small the new Jimny actually is, how underpowered it is and how it is not made for anything other than short city driving or some small offroading. Even completely standard european hatchbacks are considered small and underpowered in USA, yet so many americans are crying for the Jimny, which is far worse than a typical hatchback in every possible way except light offroading.

      I completely and dissapointingly disagree with your opinion……

        alright guys – heres a write up from a guy thats owned one for the last 4 years. I dont care for the rebadging of the Sierra name, thats a load of crap, they changed it to the jimny and thats all it is, the Sierra was a true 4BY but the jimny went soft for the sake of modernisation…

        Now I have driven the Jimny to Bundy twice, Coffs Harbour twice, been here and there and beached it a few times. I have BF Goodies AT’s and a K&N pannel filter thats all… No other modifications other than aesthetic or neccessary…

        The car has a little under 50,000kms on the dial and its suffered its fair share of bad engineering from Suzuki…

        I would find it quiet sure that any Suzuki Australia person from warranty or claims would know me quiet well, although my new mechanic from Zupps has been the best with dealing with the issues that have arrisen.

        I really need to say how lacking Suzuki is in warranty! They are below hopeless unless you really threaten them otherwise they will walk all over you and say ‘tough’, alsoo their network of service departments eg: Von Bibra and Zupps are quiet lacking in technical expertise other than Helensvale Zupps!…

        The car has suffered from King Pin Bearing failure in the right hand wheel, and then the left went a little odd, the steering subsequently was VERY shakey, and yes no steering dampener would fix it. Shims were needed and Zupps didnt have a clue… Its been back and forwards to be fixed on about a dozen times – no joke!!! The last time shims were added and the whole front end rebuilt and even the discs remachined, which this fixed that issue of steering shake.

        The fuel economy thats stated on the Suzuki Australia web page is FALSE, the 7.3 Liters is absolutly garbage, the fuel economy is somewhere about 10liters to 12 liters at times. The engine runs Castrol edge and new plugs every 15,000kms. Although even with inspection the engine remains thirsty, who knows??

        The offroad prowess of the vehicle is exactly that. Its amazing off road be it in long grassed fields, climbing embankments getting off the highway, on the beach and soft stuff or just mucking around its pretty damn good or as good as the driver, although a spare jerry with fuel is absolutly neccessary!!!

        You know the car has been good in general, although coming from a Mitsubishi Mirage that was flogged every day for 6 years this car is somewhat a lot less reliable that that vehicle, and it hasnt done as much hard work.

        For those that want a small 4WD for weekends away its a definate go’er but for those that need to commute and get around the place its a bit o a dog. They’ve been really lazy on the whole interior and making useable room, also the interior plastics arent too bad but in general like someone else said – its 1980’s technology in new skin…

        So the question looms…. Anyone want to buy my Jimny thats had its front end diff rebuilt about a dozen times and although has been really looked after???

        Ha ha thought not…
