Launched in 2003 the Proton Jumbuck pick-up is the Malaysian manufacturer's first foray into the light commercial vehicle market. Based on the Proton Wira chassis the Jumbuck is one of only a handful of sub-one-ton pick-ups available and Proton are confident that it will be just as successful in the UK as it has been in Malaysia and Australia. The Jumbuck is available in four trim specifications GL, GS, GLS and GSX and all are equipped with a 1.5 petrol engine. A diesel variant is not available but an economical LPG bi-fuel option can be specified at an additional cost of less than £1000.
The Jumbuck range starts at £5995 + VAT for the GL, £6495 + VAT for the GS, £6895 + VAT for the GLS and £7195 + VAT for the range topping GSX. We tested the GLS version to find out whether the Proton Jumbuck is a credible contender within the utility vehicle sector.
