No, Isuzu made these for years for GM, who re-badged them

Nope. All trucks.

Mid-sized trucks, semi-completed, finished in the states. 4% tariff on un-finished vehicles.

The Chevrolet LUV was a rebadged Isuzu pickup, but all GM pickups sold in the US since 1983 have been produced in GM plants.

Not to argue with anyone, but can someone cite the source on the 25% US tariff on imported trucks? I swear I read it somewhere and it only applies to single cab trucks.

So Range Rovers, Toyota Landcruisers, Porsche, and any other imports EPA or the gov label as "trucks" get this tariff? How does it work? I'd really like to know.

Range Rovers, Land Cruisers, and Cayennes are SUVs. Being four-door SUVs, they side-step the law. There was a time when regulators made a differentiation between a 2-door SUV and a 4-door SUV where the 2-door models were trucks and the 4-door models were "passenger cars," but Nissan sued and won making all SUVs "passenger cars" under the law.

Pickups of all bodystyles (as long as they have an open bed) are "trucks" and fall under the "chicken tax." I'm not sure how the law treats vans (specifically Kia, Hyundai, and Mazda minivans) since it was originally established to punish Germany who was exporting Volkswagen vans to the US.

So anything with an "open" bed? How about a truck with a removable "camper"? A lot of folks add them to their trucks to enclose the bed, after market parts of course.

Maybe making the removable "camper" standard? The 1st gen 4 Runner by Toyota had this exact feature, so did some Ford Bronco.

Sounds like a pretty easy law to "bypass". The law is probably against WTO regulations, but no one has yet to complain

The actual regulation may not say "bed" but may refer to an opening from the passenger area to the cargo compartment. If you made a Bronco/4Runner-like vehicle, that would be an SUV. I do recall Subaru creating the BRAT with the jump seats in the bed to make it a passenger car and not a truck, therefore evading the tariff.

The "chicken tax" only applies to countries that the US does not have trade agreements with. If you were to build a truck in countries like Chile or Israel or the Dominican Republic, your vehicle would be exempt. Australia and Thailand have been working on similar agreements (the former may already exist).
