And they'll sell... A dozen.
Why TF they can't bring over (or build here) one with a V6 or turbo 4, market it as THE OMG KING OF MPGEEES IN TRUCKS, and sell it starting at $25k or so?
Also, before the inevitable happens... These utes are REAL trucks. The current gen has a higher payload capacity than an F150, and can tow almost as much. This is NOT comparable to a Baja.
This thing only seats two, there aren't heavy duty versions (even if this is capable as it sits), there's no 4wd option and this one sits low like a car. Truck guys like sitting high.
The plusses for it? Mileage, it drives like a car and it sits lower. Non truck guys like sitting lower.

Would I say the same about a traditional pick-up? Not on your life.
tl;dr I have no desire to ever own a "truck", but I'd happily have a Ute.
My Cousin Vinnie.... best damn movie of all time, period......
Cause Chevy didn't make a 327 in '55, the 327 didn't come out till '62. And it wasn't offered in the Bel Air with a four-barrel carb till '64. However, in 1964, the correct ignition timing would be four degrees before top-dead-center."Oh, a counter-offer. That's what we lawyers - I'm a lawyer - we lawyers call that a counter-offer. This is a tough decision here. Get my ass kicked or collect $200. Let me think... I could use a good ass-kickin', I'll be very honest with you... nah, I think I'll just go with the two hundred.
Oh yeah... great looking car, btw. I do, however, prefer the Holden front end.
The ute doesn't appeal to me, and I like weird things and things that can haul without being truck-ish. I dunno why. The styling is off or something.
I'd rather have the wagon. It looks very slick. Much cleaner design than the pug-awkward D-pillar of the CTS wagon.
