Originally part of Mazda’s Autozam marque, the Scrum was first introduced in June 1989 as a re-badged version of the Suzuki Carry. It used Suzuki engines throughout production.
The Scrum comes powered with a 550cc Suzuki engine (pre 1990) or a 600cc Suzuki engine (post 1990) capable of making upwards of 45 hp and achieving 45 mpg. The Scrum is available with a RWD or selectable 4WD drivetrain (with high and low gears) and a 3 speed auto or 5 speed manual transmission.
The Scrum is often outfitted, from the factory, with hydraulic dump beds, hydraulic scissor lifts, hydraulic scissor/dump combo’s, electronic bed mounted cranes, enclosed refrigerated beds, boxed beds or with power lift gates.
Popular aftermarket options include turf or Trax tires, plows, salters, refrigerated beds, dump beds, scissor lifts, cranes and all kind of customizable signage.
