Finally some new spy shots showing the Dongfeng-Liuzhou V20, a Cadillac SRX clone from China. The V20 was expected to hit the China car market this year, but new reports indicate launch is delayed until early 2014. Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Company is a subsidiary of the Dongfeng Motor Corporation, aimed at making cheap SUV’s, MPV’s and pickup trucks.
The razor sharp Cadillac SRX. Price starts at 429.800 yuan and ends at 628.000 yuan. Engines: 3.0 V6 and 3.6 V6.
The Dongfeng-Liuzhou V20 will be a lot cheaper, price is expected to start around 80.000 yuan or 12.800 USD. Power will come from a locally made Mitsubishi 2.0, a rather old engine with an output of 120hp, mated to a 5-speed manual. Size: 4620/1885mm/1830mm, wheelbase is 2720mm.
The Dongfeng-Liuzhou V20 is likely based on the last-generation Kia Sorento that is still made in China by the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture, which is another subsidiary of the Dongfeng Motor Corporation.
