India, January 19, 2019 : Suzuki Jimny Monster Truck was the Star of the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon in Tokyo. Suzuki Motor Corporation has introduced the fourth generation Jimny in the global market last year. The off-roader received a new generation more than twenty years after the older model was introduced in 1998 and it has an evolutionary approach to design language along with a modern interior that brings instant success. The Japanese manufacturer kept the simplicity and no-frills styling intact while improving the off-roading bits of the new off-roader.
In fact, the twisted brain behind this model was that of the Japanese tuner Shibata R31 House. The Suzuki Jimny monster truck actually looks like a giant remote-controlled toy. Not surprisingly, the folks at Shibata R31 House had actually showcased a remote-controlled version of the Jimny monster truck. Suzuki Jimny toys are quite popular in Japan.
The Jimny monster truck gets huge, 42-inch super-sized tyres with beadlock wheels and a mental hard-core suspension setup. The black-bodied Jimny Monster has contrast red and yellow graphics and the bumper has extra protection that will help when driven on the beaten path. The Suzuki Jimny monster truck no doubt gives tough competition to all those enhanced AMG G-wagons and Range Rovers.
The standard Jimny gets two engine options. These are the 658 cc, 3-cylinder, petrol engine that offers a maximum of 64 bhp and develops a peak torque of 96 Nm. The Jimny Sierra features a 1.5-litre K15B, four-cylinder, petrol engine churning out 100 bhp of max power and 130 Nm of peak torque. And of course, you get shift-on-the-fly 4x4 and a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 4x4 also gets low range transfer gears.
