Lucky Australia still gets Ford Falcons, and also get the Holden Ute which is basically a modern El Camino.
The Coupe Utility (Ute) is basically a station wagon but behind the front seats is a bed. The closest we have in America is the 4-door Subaru Baja, which they stopped making in 2006.
Utes are much more efficient than big pickup trucks in everything except mudding and off-roading and the like. They have better fuel economy and they're cheaper than, say, a Chevy Colorado.
Chevrolet and Holden are both owned by GM. Therefore, wouldn't they be able to sell the Ute under Chevy like they did with the El Camino? Americans want something that is useful but cheap and efficient... But the ute category hasn't taken off here. Does anybody have a theory why?
