What are ATV Mini Trucks?
Mini Trucks are small trucks from Japan and are very popular for off-road use in the U.S. The Mini Truck also known as the K Truck or Kei for Keitora originated in Japan in 1964 and is a class of vehicle in Japan which is a sub-compact class with engine displacement limited to 660cc which are anywhere from a two cylinder to four cylinder and start at 550cc. In Japan they are used in all facets of everyday life, mini trucks can be seen from downtown Tokyo to remote villages.
There are several inherent advantages to these small vehicles, and the most obvious is their size, the compact size allows them to go almost anywhere, like small city streets, or narrow country roads through the rice fields. The second biggest advantage of these vehicles is that they have a low cost of ownership and have been engineered to provide years of heavy duty service.

Truck Sales in Holly Michigan (see contact info below) import four wheel drive
units for off road use because the import rules that they are imported under
prohibits them from being used on our highways due to a lack of emission
statements from the manufacturers or impact studies.
Suzuki Mitsubishi & Daihatsu/ have greater ground clearance with Mid Engines which are better for climbing hills, Honda & Subaru's have rear mounted engine which gives a softer ride.
Some of trucks at ATV Truck Sales may have air conditioning, dumping beds, locking diff or even a high/low range.
early 1990 mini trucks went from a 550cc motor to a 660cc motor, thus the 660cc
are mid 1990 and newer and the 550cc mid 1990 and older. Some trucks have a 5
speed manual trans while others have a 6 speed manual trans or some even come in
with automatic transmissions but the majority of our trucks that come in we see
a 6 speed manual trans. All trucks have an instrument cluster just like you
would see in your vehicles here in the U.S., windshield wipers, turn signals,
lights, two seats, radio and most usually have tilt steering.
Honda's model is the "ACTV", Suzuki "Carry", Daihatsu "Hijet", Mitsubishi "The Minicab" , Subaru "Sambar" and Mazda's "Scram" which is manufactured by Suzuki is basiclly the same with the Logo's being different and Daihatsu is actually Toyota's Kei Class Division.
of us here in the U.S. have realized over the years is these manufacturers have
produced extremely reliable strong running products and the Mini Trucks are no
different and make excellent sense for off-road needs here in the US.
