  • OT: Hey! It's A Brand New DeSoto Truck!

    Looks like they're building them in Turkey. I'm guessing from the url that it's a Chrysler product, but why the make survives there and not the US is beyond me.

        probably gross weight not what it will haul, that would bring capicity down to about 500 lbs

          Hope the rating in the "Power" column, 90 ps, isn't refering to how many passengers it's powerful enough to haul!

            ps in german stands for horsepower (Pferdenstarke). I don't know if the turks use it too, but I kinda guess that's what it is.

              I like the look of that truck. It's trying to look like a truck. Not a truck with a frou-frou look.

                  Looks like a neat little truck. 16 inch wheels and good ground clearance, Dana 44 and 66 spicer axles, and a 850 pound payload, little 4 cyl diesel should get pretty good mileage. Now if we turbo the motor and put some big meats on those axles....

                      I kind of doubt they are a DaimlerChrysler product, they are fait too good looking

                        Hey, if it's cheap and gets good fuel economy and if parts are easy to obtain. Why not buy one? We have a guy in town who drives a dihautsu (a division of toyota) and it's a real neat little truck. It gets very good fuel mileage. never mind the fact it's the same size of a compact. Has anyone ever thought of what would happen to the US market if it had access to every manufacture?

                          Actually, it looks like they are a DaimlerChrysler product.
