By Tom Strongman

DETROIT — are hot and keep getting hotter. Lincoln and Mitsubishi rolled out truck concepts at the North International Auto Show, and and gave us a peek at what the Tundra might be like.

SUT Concep t

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. It will be built in on Honda’s global light platform.

The SUT is designed to meet the “changing of a new generation of truck buyers,” Tom Elliott, executive vice of American Honda Motor Co. “It this evolution to the next with higher levels of and sophistication in a sporty and socially package,” he said.

The SUT Concept has styling, as if it was machined from a piece of metal. Features as a sunroof, speakers in the bed, suspension, side-curtain airbags rollover sensors and all-wheel-drive set it from more mundane

The production version will in 2005.

Mitsubishi Sport Truck

Mitsubishi’s sport truck has its in the Dodge Dakota. It has V-8 power, construction and all-wheel drive, but the is what gives it the most

The cab-forward look is enhanced by wheels, muscular body and a windshield that wraps the truck like the visor of a helmet.

Four doors wide, giving easy to the interior. The concept’s cabin a rear seat that rearward into the bed. The window opens to become a for the rear seat. This seat” idea is clever, but not to make it into the production

At the rear, the tailgate has four for carrying different loads. It slides under the bed to provide access to the cargo area.


Toyota’s next full-size will be big. The concept in Detroit is big, bold and with a grille that make an 18-wheeler envious. The concept clearly points the to the next truck, which be built in an all-new plant in San It has fenders that bulge biceps in order to cover wheels. The bumpers look aluminum girders. The interior is with a huge console sweeps through the center of the and splits right and left. The is too wild for production.

The FTX is a full-fledged body-on-frame, super-cab pickup truck. It has the interior of a double cab, yet suicide open 90 degrees for easy

“The FTX concept was developed to a bold statement about future full-size pickup plans, said Jim Press, vice president and chief officer of Toyota Motor It is a statement that promises the to match its bold styling and proportions. And it’s a statement we to back up.”

The concept showcased a gas/electric powertrain a V-8 engine, which is a good that a production version equipped will follow.

Mark LT

Lincoln’s first attempt at a the Blackwood, was not successful, partly it did not offer four-wheel drive, and because the tiny, covered bed was not for hauling anything bigger a couple of suitcases.

So, Lincoln to try another truck, the Mark LT. on the new F-150, the Mark LT takes to a new level. It will be available in and four-wheel-drive models, with full-size doors and a 5.5-foot bed.

The concept’s interior had of soft, supple leather with aluminum trim. It was as as a Navigator and almost as spacious.

The is a 300-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 capable of 1,620 pounds or towing pounds.
