Peugeot Reveals Its New Chinese-Based ‘Pick Up’

After the demise of the Hoggar, the 208-based pickup truck, some three years ago, Peugeot were left without a workhorse. Until now that is, because they have just unveiled the new ‘Pick Up’.

Aimed exclusively at the African market, where it builds on the success of the 403, 404, and 504, it’s based on the Chinese Zhengzhou Nissan Auto Rich New, to which it adds different lighting units and grille, and a few other tweaks.

Peugeot says that their ‘new’ pickup truck has a length of 5.08m (197.2in), a ground clearance between 210mm (8.3in) and 215mm (8.5in), depending on the model, a 1.4m (55.1in) and 1.39m (54.7in) wide bed, with anchoring hooks, and a maximum payload of 815kg (1,797lbs).

Powering it is a 2.5-liter turbodiesel engine that makes 115hp and 280Nm (207lb-ft) of torque, combined with a 5-speed stick shift. Customers can choose between the two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions, with the latter bringing 4 High and 4 Low modes.

Peugeot have yet to release images with the interior of the Pick Up, but they state that this is “the most spacious and accommodating” in its class. Standard features include manual air conditioning, electric windows, radio with CD player and USB port, electrically adjustable side mirrors, two frontal airbags, ABS with brakeforce distribution, and rear parking sensors.

The new Peugeot Pick Up will go on sale across the African continent in September, in double cab flavor.

    Looks like they didn’t even try with this one… What’s even the point of doing this?

  • Auto

    10/10 very creative name.

  • Jj

    Is this a joke?

  • Marcin Lewandowski

    3rd world would choose prooved models. ‘Brand’ shopping in car dealers its not african or asian way of buying cars or workhorses. Peugeot brand is the matter of the past in Africa, especially in a pick-up class and you know why. Yes, there are still plenty of 505s, 504s, 404s and even 403s pikups across Africa, but please, French guys years ago lost that battle to the Toyota Hilux, master of prooved toughness and reliability. Chinese cartoon-cut uglyness cant change anything. Even with roaring grill.

    • Jp

      Exactly my thought. I’m now wondering whether the Peugeot logo will be enough.

  • fabri99

    Why is just called “Pick-up”? Did they run out of numbers?

  • Bash

    They could have done better, they have heritage with the legendary 504, but this!!!

  • Dennis Scipio

    This would have looked good if this was the Early-Mid 2000s not 2017.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Looks about right for China and Peugeot…

    An oh yes, a message while you were out Mr Peugeot, 1980 Nissan called, they want their design back.

    • uS’gedlemba

      It is because it is a rebranded Nissan.

      • Auf Wiedersehen

        Yeah no sh!t…from 1980!

  • Matt

    It’s like the pick-up version of a Nissan Rasheen.

  • OdysseyTag

    Price is going to be its biggest factor in Africa.
    That’s the only thing that will make or break it.
    Not even this can usurp the ugliness that is the Tata Telcoline.

  • Braddo

    It could win 1992 pick up of the year! Here’s hoping!!

  • bahama

    honda ridgeline lol

  • TheHake

    Are we back in 1985?

  • Miknik

    Take one of the shittier Chinese pick ups and slap your logo on it is a great way to ruin your once legendary image (in Africa) in a short time, and lasting. Great job if that was their goal….

  • sidewaysspin

    Don’t do this to yourself Peugeot, this affects your image worldwide at a time when things were improving.

  • Marcos Drawer

    Wow… This is a “Vintage” Pick-Up… No… Wait… WTF?

  • gary4205

    Hideous. Looks like a 70’s Toyota Hilux on a bad acid trip.
