Louvres are cool again… but on canopies?

The folks over at Michigan Vehicle Solutions have just released a fastback-styled canopy for your dual-cab ute… with louvres. For when you really need a work ute, but fastbacks are life!

Okay, so we’re not 100 percent sure if we like them yet or not… it could just be our love of old-school fastback Mustangs but these canopies are now a thing. They’re currently on sale for the US version Raptor and F-150, however there are plans to release new models later this year for the RAM, Silverado, Ford Super-Duty, Ranger, Colorado, Titan, Tacoma and Tundra.

They tip the dollar scale at US $3995 plus shipping, which includes colour-coded paint, fixed side windows, louvre and spoiler. Among other features, the Aero-X includes ‘fuel saving aerodynamic styling’, and ‘ego-crushing retro design’. But really, they include gas-struts, tempered and tinted glass, LED interior and exterior tail lights, fibreglass construction, keyed locks and non-removable integrated louvres.

Look, don’t get us wrong, the fastback style of canopy are actually kind of cool; ARB did it pretty darn well with their Sprint Canopy a few years ago, that gave the odd HiLux that had them a rather aggressive Humvee look. But the new one from Michigan Vehicle Solutions now comes with louvres? Really?
