The Daihatsu Rocky was a small SUV produced in Japan from 1987 to 1998. The first generation was sold from 1987 to 1993, with a SOHC or DOHC 1.6 L engine. It was sold in the United States from 1988 through 1992 when Daihatsu was available in the continent, but sales were extremely poor. In Europe and Australia, where the car was more popular, it was called Daihatsu Feroza, as Rocky was used for the bigger Rugger/Fourtrak.
The second generation was introduced in 1993 but differed little from the original model, retaining the same chassis and engine, although the old SOHC 8-valve was dropped. Power was 95 hp DIN (70 kW). Italian company Bertone built a variation powered by the BMW M40 engine, with 100 hp (74 kW), called the Bertone Freeclimber II. The Rocky/Feroza was replaced in 1998 by the Terios.
