Hi All,

I spotted this Suzuki at Wal-Mart today. I first thought what a cute little truck it was, then I noticed what looks like a Hidden Hitch receiver system & ball!



If memory serves me right, these had a little 3 or 4 cylinder pseudo-motorcycle engine and not very many horses under the tiny hood.

Have a great weekend all - off to Goose Point CG in Virginia in a couple hours.

That is good for at least 10,000 lbs.

They would easily tow a jet ski or lawn mower or something like that or even a small fishing boat.

I had a 98 Chevy Tracker with 1.6 liter engine. I also had a small utility trailer to haul stuff around. Handier than the large pickup truck I have now.

wow an X90, dont see many of those. Would be good for a small utility trailer or jet ski. Of course it wouldn't be nearly as much fun to park at the mall at christmas time as a 1 ton crew cab long bed DRW.

I have a hitch on my chevy cavalier. I use it to tow a 5x8 utility trailer and my atv on day trips.

I have the car for commuting to work anyways so why not enjoy the improved mileage over the truck. Around 25 mpg towing 1000 lbs at about 75 mph.

You're talking about a Ridgeline, right?

Sorry, that doesn't even qualify as a truck. It is a very small car-based unit body/chassis vehicle that has no business being called a truck. It doesn't even have a pickup bed on it. Most it could possibly be called is a crossover SUV, but then it has a trunk like a car. I would call it a passenger car, which is what it is.

I've got a hitch on my Honda Fit. With all of 98hp. It gets 35mpg while towing! I also use the hitch for a luggage carrier. We travelled 5 people on an 800 mile trip and got 41mpg doing it!
