Suzuki brings back Sierra badge and introduces new Grand Vitara Trekker pack
5 Feb 2008
EIGHT years after the last Suzuki Sierra was sold in Australia, the company has brought the name back by adding the badge to its Jimny micro-SUV.
Suzuki Australia general manager Tony Devers said that the Jimny will now be known as the Jimny Sierra because “the Sierra name has assumed cult status” and “owners have told us they wanted the Sierra name to live on”.
Apart from the badge, the model is otherwise unchanged and continues to sell from $19,990.

Suzuki has also announced a new retail ‘Trekker’ pack – the third in three years – that adds $4000 worth of value at no extra cost to the Grand Vitara compact SUV, including satellite navigation, an iPod interface, rear spoiler, headlight and bonnet protectors, floor mats, reverse parking sensors and a cargo net and tray.
Three-door Grand Vitara Trekker models also get upgraded alloy wheels and are priced from $23,990 while the five-door Trekker pack includes side steps, with prices starting from $28,990. It is not available on turbo-diesel models.
