While GM refuses to make a real body on frame SUV (since I'm a millenial I also associate the name to the S10/S15 Blazer/Jimmy- a truck that had surprisingly good driving feel and a pushrod V6 that was extremely low tech but is very reliable), Suzuki just released a new Jimny- a kei car with a ladder frame and front/rear solid axles.

@ CarPhreakD, that Jimny thing is awesome! So fun and spunky...Great alternative to the Souls, Wranglers, etc. out there. If the price was really reasonable, this would make a great winter beater. Too bad it's not sold in NA....

I would buy a Jimny so much - what a freaking awesome little car.

Yeah, Americans get a 'small CJ' look-alike (more like actual sibling) in the Mahindra Roxor... but it's an offroad only vehicle.

It appears that if you're a body-on-frame truck enthusiast and you wanted something compact, you're literally limited to the Wrangler, offroad only vehicles or maybe the upcoming Bronco (if Ford ever gets around to releasing it). There's no decently sized ladder frame truck (Toyota Taco?), and Truck-UVs don't even seem to exist anymore.

Suzuki buyers (usually farming types) seem to love them!

They're very close to the original Willys/Land Rover concept, but with Japanese virtues.

Less is definitely more.

What's wrong with the Tacoma and Colorado/Canyon size? Too big?

I'm just saying that those are essentially the only "midsize" trucks you can get, but to me they're still behemoths compared to your S10s and Rangers. I love Tacos.

Piano black A-pillars are a nice touch. The exterior is 9/10ths as good as the RDX. This thing is going to sell like hotcakes.

The Jeep Cherokee started the trend of placing the low beam projector lamps down low on the bumper with LED DRL/Turn signal strip up top near the hood. Hyundai has followed hard with the Kona and new Santa Fe, and now Chevy is following suit.

Funny... the MMC Cherokee did away with the design and returned to a more conventional approach, but I must say their version was a lot uglier than this.

Not bad looking, but at first glance it looked a little like a Lexus SUV and Nissan SUV had a love child.

It's fine though I see a GMC something hiding in there...
