The current small truck offerings are NOT small at all.
Mitsubishi should build a pickup, 6 1/2 foot bed, on the Mirage platform.
Yes, front wheel drive.
Please with a 6spd(double overdrive).
Most little trucks spend 75% or more of the time running empty(a guess).
Front wheel drive would provide excellent traction except for times when the truck is heavily laden.
Also, a lightweight factory camper top offering that would offer a low CD to help maintain the Mirage's fuel economy.
Oh, factory trailer hitch and tow rating of at least 600 pounds.
No four door.
No extended cab.
Yes, a telescopic steering column.
Room for 6 foot 2'' tall person.
The Mitsu L200 is too big.
