PUG's Frontier 4x4 heavy-duty utility vehicles feature a three person bench seat, 1,200-pound capacity cargo bed, 1,500 pounds of towing capacity, and electronically engaged four-wheel drive. An air-cooled Honda engine displacing 620 cubic centimeters makes 20 horsepower, and power is transmitted to the axles by a constant variable-speed transmission. McPherson front strut suspension and heavy-duty rear leaf springs smooth the ride. Estimated list price is around $10,000.
