7. Mazda Rotary Pickup
Yes, there was a rotary powered pickup truck. An engine famous for having no torque was indeed installed in a vehicle synonymous with needing a ton of it. Sold for a few years in Canada and the USA during the mid-1970s, the Rotary Pickup was based on Mazda’s compact pickup, but with some revised styling.
Using the tagline ‘The Pickup with Pickup’, this truck had Mazda’s 13B rotary installed under the hood and came with a 50,000 mi warranty. Only 17,000 Rotary Pickups were produced and like most cars on this list, has since become sought after by enthusiasts.
