Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd has just announced the Daihatsu Gran Max, a new light commercial vehicle manufactured at P.T. Astra Daihatsu Motor in Indonesia, aiming to meet the increasing demand in Indonesia for light commercial vehicles.
The Daihatsu Gran Max comes in two body styles, a pick up truck and a minibus. The pick up truck rear can be configured as you wish – in the photos after the jump you will be able to see a classic pick up truck bed as well as a storage box.
The minibus body is the only one in its class with sliding rear doors on both sides. It also has class-leading load capacity.
Powering the Gran Max is either a 1.3 litre DOHC VVT-i or 1.5 litre DOHC VVT-i engine, which should be the 85hp K3-VE and the 107hp 3SZ-VE.
Perhaps this will be offered in Malaysia sometime soon too as a Daihatsu or a Perodua? Perhaps as a Rusa replacement.
More photos of different body styles and the interior after the jump.
