In the spirit of full disclosure: one of the Suzuki X-90s for sale in this lot is actually 2-wheel drive, but using a little poetic license this seller does actually have at least four 4×4 X-90s shown here in the photo. Speaking of the group photo, there is no mention as to which ones are for sale, just that four of them are; three 4-wheel drive models and one 2-wheel drive model. They’re found here on craigslist in White Pine County, Nevada – on the Lincoln Highway, about forty miles as the crow flies west of the Utah border. He’s asking between $2,000 and $4,100 each, depending on which one, or ones, you’d like to take home.
Dare I suggest that the Suzuki X-90 is where the term “cute ute” first came from? I mean, look at that thing! The X-90s were all 2-seaters and that’s what I like about them, they’re not the most practical vehicle but that’s what makes them unusual. There is no mention of which color is available, so if you’ve got a hankerin’ for a silver one or a blue one or a black one, you just may find out that it’s either not for sale or it’s the 2-wheel-drive one that he’s letting go. You’ll have to shoot him a message to find out 4-sure. The other wild card is that one of them is an automatic, but no mention, again, which one is which in the group photo showing six of them.
I’m guessing that this jacked-up red one is a 4×4, but I’m not positive. That extra clearance might be useful in that area of Nevada, but I’d personally go for one of the more stock-appearing versions.
Like this black one. These 90s graphics have always reminded me of the Geo Metro graphics that show up every now and then, or the graphics on my brother’s former teal green Ford Ranger. A truly era-defining look. I’d wet sand and/or buff those off the first weekend that I owned it, but that’s just me. The spoiler should come in handy as you’re accelerating through the apex on your next trip to the Nurburgring. All of them have power windows, locks, and cruise control for those trips up to Salt Lake City or over to Reno. Two of them have A/C, which would be nice for summers in that area. They all came with the same 1.6-liter inline-4 cylinder which should be more than enough power for these 2,400 lb vehicles.
These things sure are cool. Of course, they aren’t for manly-men who insist on having a diesel-powered 4×4 pickup with an 18″ lift and chrome stacks, ala-Peterbilt-style, to commute with. But, they would be perfect for those of us who are looking for a tiny vehicle that’s easy to drive in traffic, navigate narrow trails, and park on city streets; and one with a little extra traction in the winter. They only made them for three years with about 7,200 of them making their way to the US. Here’s your chance to own four of them all at once! What are you waiting 4?
