Yes! The new Ford F-150 (America's top selling vehicle for the past 17 centuries) is available with a snow plow.

It also comes with an aluminium body for improved fuel economy, as well as larger-than-ever suicide doors on the SuperCab model.

Despite the measuring between 5.9m and 6.4m long, the SuperCab's rear seats aren't exactly spacious (note how Ford has folded up the rear seats to create the impression of more space). Thankfully the doors' wide opening angle and the lack of an intrusive pillar making ingress and egress relatively easy.

Live outside of North America? But still fancy a bit of blue oval badge and suicide door action? Well there's always the Ford Ranger SuperCab.

Look hard and you see the outline of the rear door openings in this photo.

Alternatively you can also go for the mechanically and structurally identical, but visually very distinct, Mazda BT-50.

Why does Mazda dub the BT-50's suicide doors freestyle doors? Well, because that's what they were called on the rather sportier RX-8.

Nissan Titan

The Titan is a USA, Canada and Mexico-only pickup truck that's hoping (and hoping and hoping) to one day usurp the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500. It's not having a lot of success, despite aping the Ford F-150 by offering well hidden reversed hinged rear doors for its Extended Cab body style.

You'll have to look closely, and beyond the massive boat, to see the faint outline of the rear doors in this photo.

Toyota Tacoma Access Cab

Think of the Tacoma of the Hilux's larger North American cousin.

Unlike the Hilux, the Tacoma is offered with an extended cab (sorry, Access Cab) body that features, you guessed it, rear hinged doors that latch onto the front doors.

Okay, all that’s left now are the luxury cars … and they all come from one maker.
