The Suzuki Jimny is every much a mainstay in the Suzuki truck line today, as it was 25 years ago when it was first launched. The durability and versatility of the Suzuki Jimny truck has been proven in many applications, from military use to high altitude off-roading. It has a cult following around world, where the many variations can be found with a large number of modifications. Hundreds of Jimnys are available from every generation weekly at the Japanese dealer auctions.

Like many Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki obtained one of their most famous models by acquiring another company. The Jimny started off as the Hope Star, and it was a small 2 cycle 359cc machine with a 4 speed Manual transmission and 4wd transfer case, putting out a modest 21hp. At the time Suzuki was looking to break into the jeep market and bought the rights to the Star from Hope Motor Company, their first step to becoming a leader in the market.

This first official Suzuki Jimny was born in 1970. The LJ10 featured the same engine as its predecessor but had a completely redesigned chassis and body. Suzuki added zip down canvas doors as another new feature. Several other changes took place in the 70s: A water-cooled 550cc engine, a wider chassis and a longer body to meet new kei standards, and solid doors. The SJ10 greatly improved the Jimny’s off road capabilities by increasing power under the hood while maintaining the light weight chassis from previous models. Suzuki also produced a larger 800cc 4 cylinder model for export which was very successful overseas.

The second generation Jimny, introduced in 1981, was completely redesigned with driver comfort in mind. The wheel base was expanded, suspension improved, cab size increased, AC was offered as an option, and the interior was designed to be more stylish and appealing to a larger customer base. During this period the Jimny 1000, which boasted a tough, 4 cylinder 1000cc engine that put out 52hp @ 5000rpm, was the truck that really brought the Jimny to the world. Several variations were produced: Half metal door convertible, full metal door type, hard top, and pick up. Suzuki also expanded production to India, Australia and North America where it was marketed as the Samurai.

In 1990, the kei regulations changed in Japan allowing for a larger body and engine. Suzuki introduced the new JA11 equipped with a the 3-cylinder 660cc, fuel-injected turbo F6A engine and intercooler. The F6A was quick, durable and popular engine and was used in many other Suzuki models throughout its second generation, including the Alto Works. Though the Jimny continued to be exported to the US as the Samurai, this engine never made it across the pond. Other changes to the JA11 included: steering improved with the use of universal joints, transfer case was relocated to the center floor area, and front disc brakes improved stopping power.

This particular Jimny is a Turbocharged, 5 speed, 4wd, full metal door model with AC. It has been completely repainted inside and out, and has a clean rust free undercarriage. It was sourced from USS Tokyo auction house, the heart of the JDM auction market. Our customer wanted his truck to be as stock as possible, but Jimnys with various mods can be found at auction or on dealer lots across Japan. The most common mods are lift kits, fender flares, winches and bumpers.

The Suzuki Jimny is as tough as a Landcruiser and quick like a Samurai (literally). They tend to hold their value better than any kei truck, from that time, and several are available in good condition daily from Japan’s used car market. Let Japan Car Direct help you find the off-road Kei you need for loads of solid outdoor fun.

    review rating 5  My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!

I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.

  • review rating 5  I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!

    review rating 5  Mathew and the gang were great with helping me with the acquisition of my 1994 Subaru Sambar dump kei truck. I was so excited about getting a truck I was ready to buy just about anything. Matt put the breaks on that and used his experience and knowledge to weed out the potential problems. I use my truck almost daily around our farm moving things and as a work surface. It is great. Mathew and Japan Car Direct helped my sister get a kei truck as well and I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who has expressed interest in my great little vehicle.

  • review rating 5  I purchased a 1994 4wd Suzuki Carry Kei truck through JCD. Yoshi helped me during the process and after nearly 3 months and over 100 emails back and forth between questions and translations of auction sheets I finally decided on a truck. I've now had it for nearly a month and couldn't be happier with the purchase. They are extremely promt with responses and answered all questions I had. Being completely new at the importing process I never felt uneasy with my decision. If I ever decide to import another vehicle I will definitely use them again.

    review rating 5  Excellent service from beginning to end. I registered over the new year holidays and received an automatic out of office response and also still received personal response indicating when auctions resumed. The process takes doing your own due diligence to study the cars you want but the guys at JCD will assist where they can as well.

    review rating 5  When I thought about importing a vehicle from Japan, I was a little apprehensive. I read some real horror stories. Once I got in contact with Yoshi, he put me at ease. The entire crew at Japan Car Direct made the process effortless. From translations, to inspections, to the auctions, I felt comfortable with the entire transaction. The hardest thing was waiting for the ship to arrive at port with my new truck. I highly recommend JCD to anyone considering a vehicle import from Japan.

    review rating 5  After ordering my minivan from Mathew and the folks at JCD, I will definetely use them again. Took three months to get the van but I am on the other side of the world. Van arrived in better condition than I expected although battery was dead and gas was extremely low. Other than that, the documents were sent to me promptly and the process of registering was seamless with the supplied documents. Thank you Matt and team and I look forward to working with you in the future!

    review rating 5  When starting my path of importing a JDM classic Land Cruiser, I spent weeks doing research before actually committing because I’d never imported anything before. I was fortunate to come across Japan Car Direct, and that’s where I met Mathew. Wow, where do I start with Mathew..... (Just kidding Chicago!) Mathew was fantastic, from spending time on Skype answering all my questions to teaching me everything I needed to know to successfully find the truck of my dreams. Well today in fact I picked up my truck at the port, and it was in even better condition than I could have seen in the pictures and from the reports provided. Guess what, just ordered another one! You are the Master Mathew. Go Hawks!

  • review rating 5  My Importing experience with Japan Car Direct was unbelievably smooth. What I feared would be a complex process became far simpler than ever imagined. From the very beginning I worked with Mathew, who provided excellent communication. I always felt informed on all costs and the vehicle’s condition. My van has arrived in the US and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you for all the help! I hope to work with JCD again soon.

    review rating 5  This was my first experience importing any vehicle. The team at JCD, specifically Mathew, made the process exciting and fun. The information provided from the how to video’s, the explanation of ALL the costs and even helping me choose an import broker that made the experience easy and understandable for this first time customer. Thank you for answering my every question providing guidance through my first purchase. I look forward to buying my next vehicle from you too! Patrick – North Texas
