Joan Reynolds ASKED THE GUIDE

Small ute options in Australia?

A query on Proton Jumbuck utes. Are these ever likely to be made and imported into Australia again and when? Are there any other small utes to be imported into Australia?

Paul Gover ANSWERED BY Paul Gover

Sadly, the Jumbuck has gone the same way as the Subaru Brumby — the world now wants bigger utes. In any case, the Jumbuck was based on the old Mitsubishi Lancer, which meant it was barely safe, and Proton has insufficient funds to develop a new model.
