Although you may not immediately recognize the model name, the Suzuki Sidekick is an incredibly interesting and historic vehicle. The Suzuki Sidekick was first produced by Suzuki in 1988 and so far, has four generations of vehicles under its name. It is a SUV that has had many different names through its geographic markets. In Japan, it is known as the Suzuki Vitara and the Suzuki Escudo with the Sidekick name being only used in the first generation produced for North America. Suzuki and General Motors both teamed up for the North American production of the SUV. The first generation sported many different trims and levels and in 1966 even received a sport version with a 120 hp (89 kW), 1.8-litre 16-valve four-cylinder Suzuki J18 engine.
