Ah...the coupe utility. Pretty much the only exposure the United States has gotten to these types of vehicles are the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero. However, they are wildly popular in Australia. Malaysia's entry into the coupe utility market is the Proton Arena (called the Proton Jumbuck in the United Kingdom, Taiwan, and Australia).



What are your thoughts on this unique vehicle? Discuss.

Mopar offers a conversion kit (Plus several after-market companies do too) to convert a JK (Jeep Wrangler) into a JK-8 (Jeep Truck).
Kinda the same thing, plus there is some buzz about a production model coming out soon. (I work as a Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge mechanic)

I will admit they are kinda goofy looking, but basically the same thing.
