I'd love a Ute, but they haven't made them here in America for nearly 30 years
So then whats the difference with that and a pickup truck?
Utes are based on car chassis. Back in the day in America, the Chevy El Camino....
....was merely a Chevelle with a bed instead of a trunk and backseats.
Thanks, Google image search
So basically, you could have the same big-block V-8, manual trans, suspension, and brakes as a Chevelle passenger car but with the versatility of a small pickup truck.
These days, the Aussies get cars like the Holden Ute, that comes with the same 400hp, 6.0L V-8 and six-speed manual trans as in the 2005-2008 Corvette. You bastards
Meanwhile, fat Americans have to settle for trucks that are versatile yet drive and handle like $h!t, or sports cars that are fast and handle well yet have zero versatility.
