It wasn’t all that ago that executives at American said they would build a truck, but how times Honda debuted a sport-utility concept that reaches for a segment of truck buyer. on a unibody chassis, the SUT is built for use rather than serious It has four doors, an SUV-style a five-foot pickup bed and V-6 power. buyers are folks who haul gear, motorcycles, bicycles, or watercraft.

Mitsubishi’s sport has its roots in the Dodge Dakota. It has V-8 body-on-frame construction and all-wheel but the styling is what gives it the distinction.
