We havnt posted anything about ZhongXing as of yet, thats not to say theres nothing good to say about them though. China Car Times finally caught up with ZhongXing at Beijing Car Show where we saw a few of their new models.
The Grand Tiger
The Grand Tiger (Wei Hu) looks a bit like a Mitsubishi Triton, actually quite a lot. ZhongXing also had a Grand Tiger done up like a Monster Truck, complete with a foreign guy modeling it for them. The Grand Tiger will be sold for 90,000RMB once it is released in China.
It has a 3.0 four cylinder turbo diesel engine, giving max torque of 221nm/2000rpm and max power is 80.9kw/3600RPM, judge for yourself if its a Toyota Tundra or a Mitsubishi Triton beater, but China Car Times thinks its cheep and cheerful. If pick up trucks wernt banned from Qingdao City centre (The city government classes them as goods vehicles and are thus banned from using the main roads into the city) we would buy one ourselves, maybe even this monster truck version:
