Last year China’s Jinbei launched a clone of the Acura MDX. Now they are working on a pickup truck variant of the thing. Acura surely never did that. The pickup keeps the Acura looks, right until the C-pillar.
The Ford F-150 Raptor remains a popular vehicle among China’s copy-cat clone makers. The latest addition to the long line of F-150 ripoffs is this bright orange painted Projen, complete with properly copied mirrors, lights, grille, and bumpers.
This big brown beast is the new Huanghai N3 pickup truck, fitted with a massive grille and shiny wheels. The N3 is the new flagship of the N-range of pickup trucks which furthermore consists of the Huanghai N1, the N1S, and the Huanghai N2.
Yema as applied for patent on the design of a new pickup truck, and the images promptly leaked from China’s famously leaky patent bureau. The yet nameless vehicle looks nice, with a front similar to the Yema T70 SUV and a trendy crease over the side of the bed.
This is my new ultimate dream car from China. She is called the Ruijie H6, and I met her on the 2017 Jinan EV Show. She is a four-door double-cab five-seat tricycle LSEV pickup truck, and she looks brilliant: a Ferrari-red over-black paint job, black wheels with a red nut, a shiny bull bar, a shiny grille, red lint on the big black mirrors, a giant windshield wiper, a giant windshield, ….
This is the ultra basic and ultra cool Kaiyun Pickman, and LSEV pickup truck that I met on the 2017 Jinan EV Show. This racy red example is the most basic of them all; with steel wheels, a a simple bench, and a long bed. The indicators are located in top of the front fenders, and the doors open suicide.
Ford is finally going to sell the F-150 Raptor officially in China. Sales are expected to start next month. The first shipment of Raptorii left the United States earlier this month and the first vehicle has arrived at a Ford dealer in Shanghai. They always get it first down there, just today I went to a Ford dealer here in Beijing but they didn’t have the Raptor yet. Anyway, as soon as they have it I will check it out.
There are a notable differences between the U.S. and the Chinese versions. Here they are:
This is the brilliant new JMC Yuhu pickup truck, set to hit the Chinese car market in the second half of the year. It looks incredible badass in this matte white paint and with its Stormtrooper face. They like Star Wars down at the Jiangling Motor Corporation; they are also working on a storm-trooped minivan.
The good old Beijing Auto BJ2022 Brave Warrior is still alive and kicking. Three new workhorse pickup truck versions are under development and they are looking badass and somewhat cool. The first car is a double cab with a short bed, it will be powered by a 2.2 liter diesel engine with 110hp. Bed size: 1440/1580/480.
There is nothing I wanted more than a pink double cab 3-wheel pickup truck with searchlights on the roof. Many years I dreamed and searched, but my quest has finally come to a very happy end. This little beauty is the Xuzhou Suding four-door electric tricycle. It doesn’t really have but it doesn’t really need one; it has searchlights on the roof, three of ‘m, and they are big!
