Camioneta for Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, Honduran, and Salvadoran Spanish.

furgoneta? That's more like a delivery van.


Around here it's also pee-cup or troh-kay (rhymes with OK).

I'm trying to avoid Spanglish words like troka, troke or lonche. My target audience is world-wide, and I don't want someone in Spain or Argentina going "¿Qué dijiste?"
