As in neighbouring Dominican Republic, Haitians seem to be fond of Nissan pick-ups, with the Nissan Frontier really successful. However its seems the Ford Ranger has taken the lead in this troubled year 2010 in Haiti. Pick-ups are a great help in the huge reconstruction effort the country has to go through after the dramatic earthquake of February 2010.
Another Haitian car tradition is Suzuki/Chevrolet 4WD’s: the Chevrolet Vitara and Grand Vitara can be seen frequently in the streets of Port-au-Prince. Other successful models include the Daihatsu Terios, Mazda Bt-50, Toyota Hilux, Hyundai Tucson, Chevrolet Luv D-Max and Mitsubishi L200.
