A new top of the range GSX version of the Proton Jumbuck is being launched by the Malaysian car importer to satisfy demand for higher specification versions of this pick-up range.
Many pick-ups have to work hard for their living in the week, but at the weekend many owners look for the style and comfort of a normal car. Since the Jumbuck was launched mid-year, 50-60 per cent of sales have been the GLS version.
Aimed at the growing pick-up leisure sector, the GSX moves the Jumbuck further up market. It is easily identified by stainless steel styling bars and stainless steel side sill rails, plus Proton silver tiger head graphics on the doors and B posts.
Further styling cues are black body side mouldings with GSX inserts, black front and rear bumper mouldings, chrome front and rear number plate surrounds and five spoke alloy wheels with locking wheel nuts.
Additional exterior equipment includes front driving lamps and working lamps mounted on the styling bars above the cab, and there is a load liner to protect cargo in the Jumbuck's 800 litre load area.
The Jumbuck GSX cab features cloth seat and headrest covers with Jumbuck logo, pop-up tilt and removable sunroof and a radio cassette player.
Priced at £7,195 excluding VAT and on the road supplement, the GLS is available in canary yellow, or metallic deep blue at no extra cost.
The Jumbuck GSX made its public debut in the Proton Team KR "race paddock" display at the International Motorbike Show at the NEC Birmingham.
