YOU'RE SUCH A SUT - That's Sport-Utility-Truck, to be more precise. It's another concept car from Nissan that just could wind up heading to a showroom soon. The SUT combines the room and comfort of a 4-door sport-utility vehicle, and the cargo carrying capacity of a mini-pickup bed. (The truck is based on the same platform as Nissan's compact Frontier pickup.) For bigger items, such as 4x8 sheets of plywood, the rear window, or backlight, swings open, and the back seats fold down. Nissan's not the only automaker interested in this hybrid truck concept. Ford unveiled its own version, the Explorer Sport Trac, on Monday. The Sport Trac goes into production shortly, and Nissan officials hope to get the go-ahead for the SUT by Spring.
