The Haval H9 SUV will finally get the promised twin-turbocharged V6 engine, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in May. There will be two variants: a low pressure version with 295hp and 480nm, and an absolute monstrous high pressure version with 310hp and… 650nm! And that makes it the torquiest passenger car engine ever manufactured in China. It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic, sending power to all four wheels.
Haval will also launch a high-pressure version of the current 2.0 turbo, with an output of 241hp and 350nm. The current ‘low pressure’ 2.0 turbo has 214hp and 324nm. The new high-pressure 2.0 turbo is mated to the eight-speed automatic. Last but not least, Haval is going to launch a diesel, a 2.0 turbo with 187hp and 420nm, mated again to the eight-speed auto. This engine is mainly aimed at export markets.

A local Haval dealer in the great city of Shantou in Guangdong Province had a brilliant idea: take some babe and a Haval H9 to the beach for a sleazy photoshoot with the waves and the birds.
