Proton Jumbuck

The Proton Jumbuck is a very handy, good-looking, low-cost ute.

Model Update

Low cost and tough, the latest Proton Jumbuck boasts Australia’s most fuel efficient light commercial. Having the 1.65 metre long tray out the back makes a world of difference, resulting in the Jumbuck ute being exceptionally practical.

One thing to note is that the Proton Jumbuck delivers passenger car comfort while meeting the demands of being a workhorse vehicle. The seating is nice and soft, while the support from the seat construction is very good. A modern dash; some pleasing creature comforts like air-conditioning, power steering with tilt adjustable steering column, a two-speaker AM/FM single CD audio system and remote keyless central locking with panic alarm are all standard features.

If you want a higher spec Jumbuck, the GLSi is also equipped with durable velour cloth seat trim, 14-inch alloy wheels, electric exterior mirrors, electric windows and a four-speaker AM/FM/ single CD audio system.

Need a small-sized versatile pick-up that is economical and fun to drive?

Check out the Proton Jumbuck. It comes in two different trims. The GLS and GLSi have a 1.5 litre, 12-valve petrol engine that’s married to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Jumbuck has the ability to handle a payload of 645kg on the rear deck, and has a built-in rear rollbar. Handy multiple tie-downs with removable grommets make tying things onto the deck a piece of cake. There is even a grille on the rear window for protection, should anything in the tray break loose.

What about options? The interior of the Proton Jumbuck is comfortable and stylish, with many optional extras available to the buyer, depending on his/her budget. Options may include air-conditioning, cloth seats, electric windows and mirrors, fog lights as well as an impressive Clarion stereo – with CD.

Inside, you’ll appreciate the storage areas in the cab – with a bonus CD storage box mounted between the seats.

One of the Proton Jumbuck’s key features is its fuel economy. The petrol in the tank is sipped slowly and you are able to return a very credible average fuel consumption of just 7 litres/100 km. This makes the Proton Jumbuck one of the most economical work utes in the world. Though frugal, the engine is responsive enough with 66 kW and 126 Nm of torque.

Take a moment today to take a Jumbuck for a test drive. You will see that value, comfort and economy are at the top of the Proton Jumbuck’s brag list.

  • Proton Jumbuck GLi
