We don't get any of the cool toys.

Really? The Jimny has been around for decades. The US market sees only a fraction of models available to the rest of the world. Sometimes we miss out on cool things, other times it's just as well that we don't get them (Ssang Yong Karondo being top of my list).

Ugly as sin, but it ticks a lot of boxes. Ford believes Americans only want cup holders and automatic.. everything. They might be right.

Looking at some vids what's really impressive is all the aftermarket add-ons sold for it. I guess being the arrogant american I think Brazil, what could the demand be. Enough I guess.

Those guys are living it up! Reminds me of what LR used to be all about. The Troller is impressive and I’m a bit envious they at least aren’t an option here. The front end still looks like a tastelessly modded Jeep, but other angles aren’t so bad. It clearly gets the job done and then some.
