The Suzuki Jimny is still popular, and orders for new Jimnies are pouring in, but at a much lower price than in the old days.
Jimny production will begin in Suzuki’s Indian plant in January 2021, and production in the US is expected to begin as early as next year. The wait for delivery, which used to take a year or more, is a blink of an eye, but there is a long time between the start of production and the arrival of the first Jimnies in production.
Will the doors of the Jimny 5 really appear, or are we trying to confirm the truth? Meanwhile, the long-rumoured addition to Suzuki’s long-running “Jimny” and “Jimmie Sierra” franchises is returning to the big screen.
According to the report, the new Jimny could be equipped with a hybrid combination that produces more power and torque than the current version of the car and has a range of up to 2,000 kilometers.
MOTA claims the extra power is enough to overcome the Long’s weight gain, which is rumoured to be 1,000 kilos more than expected. Hard to say, but a 5-liter four-cylinder engine could easily drive a car as big as the Jimny 2 “s current 2.5-liter V8.
According to Autocar India, the five-door Jimny Long will be an all-wheel-drive model with a 2.5-litre V8 engine and a 5-speed manual transmission.
However, the report also suggests that the Long will have a longer wheelbase than the standard three-door mini SUV. This is due to the shorter length and wider front and rear wheels, as well as a shorter rear axle and wider rear.
