Shanxi Victory clones the Cadillac Escalade EXT in China

Shaanxi Victory clones the Cadillac Escalade

A new clone from China, this is the Shanxi Victory S102 pickup truck, with a front that loox very much like the good old American Cadillac Escalade EXT.

Shanxi Victory is state-owned conglomerate from Shanxi Province, they are involved in coal mining, in the aerospace industry, they make all sort of engines and they have an automobile division which until now only made some minivans and pickup trucks that nobody outside Shanxi had ever heard about. That is certainly going to change with this S102!

The Cadillac Escalade EXT.

The V for Victory. Sure these are only drawings but the S102 seems very real, Shanxi Victory shows a picture and all specs on its website: size: 5030/1720/1710, wheelbase is 3025. Buyers can choose between two 4-cylinder patrol engines with 91hp/193nm or 100hp/215nm, both mated to a 5-speed manual.

Back of the beast is much less Cadillac than the front. We are not sure when exactly the S102 will hit the road, but even then it is unlikely to be sold outside Shaanxi Province, a big market by itself with 37 million inhabitants, hungry for Caddy-like pickup trucks.

looks like a 4-door Chevy Silverado with an Escalade front grille. Kinda good job indeed, but needs to look more luxurious.

I know this sounds like new, but hey, it’s not like anything new.

Guizhou Hangtian Chenggong Automobile Mfg, the subsidiary of Shaanxi Victory has been building a minivan with a Cadillac face for many, many years:

They just took the idea one step further 🙂

Copying designs, is this still consider news? At this point in time I just wish a Chinese car manufacturer can actually make a really nice copy. if you are going to cheat don’t try and get a 30% on the test.
