- Pick Ups in the UK
I occasionally lust after a Subaru Brat, but the ones that aren’t a rusty mess are silly money
I had a 86-ish era hilux when I was at uni, was an amazing bit of kit for rattling to and from riding and climbing adventures in.
I had one of these as my first car – many fun memories of lugging the bike off for adventures.
You’re not wrong on the price of a “good” one now 😯Posted 3 years agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber
Hilux came in 2wd a few years ago, can’t think of any new pick ups that aren’t 4wd.
Presumed he was after more of a ‘ute’ than specifically being anti 4×4? A 2WD hillux isstill a big car.
Not that I can think of many 4×4 car derived pickups anyway, unless you get a P100 and a Sierra XR4x4 and start playing about…….http://passionford.com/forum/pictures-video-and-photoshop-forum/313059-p100-4×4-cosworth.htmlPosted 3 years agonwmlargeSubscriber
I’d love to have a Brat/brumby.
I’d settle for a Jumbuck with an EVO front end.
On the continent there are loads more options for small pick ups.Posted 3 years agojimjamMember
Are there any that are not basically 4×4’s without a boot?
I like pickups but don’t want and SUV type thing
Not the clearest phrasing there Boba but from this I am assuming you want something different from a Range Rover/Taureg/X5 ? Might be an idea to clarify why.
Most pickups are quite different from most SUVs, not as refined, much more utilitarian. They generally run in 2wd and have select-able 4wd. Some share parts with their SUV stablemates but generally they are not the same. There’s a common misconception that “PICKUP X” is just “SUV Y” with the back chopped off. This is almost never the case.
Most manufacturers that have pickups in their range still offer 2wd variants at the bottom of the range.Posted 3 years ago
