This Is Peugeot’s New Pickup Truck For China, A Remasked Changan

The PSA Group and Changan Automobile are prepping a new Peugeot pickup truck for the Chinese market, which in essence will be a rebadged version of the Changan Kaicheng F70.

Based on the spy shots obtained by AutoHome, the two vehicles are very similar on the outside, with only the Peugeot-branded front end setting them apart.

As basic as the exterior may look like, the cabin is fairly modern. It has a tablet-like infotainment system on top of the dashboard, multi-function steering wheel and interesting design for the buttons positioned on the central console.

This particular model uses a six-speed manual gearbox that’s believed to be linked to a 1.9-liter diesel engine, rated at 150 horsepower (152 PS / 112 kW). This is the same engine that powers the Peugeot’s Chinese sibling, the F70.

The F70 is 5,330 mm (209.8 in) long, 1,875 mm (73.8 in) wide and 1,930 mm (76 in) tall, with a 3,180 mm (125.2 in) long wheelbase. The proportions are expected to be retained by the Peugeot pickup, which would theoretically make it 75 mm (3 in) longer, 25 mm (1 in) wider and 110 mm (4.3 in) taller than the third-gen Nissan Navara, whose wheelbase is 3,150 mm (124 in) long.

Peugeot’s new pickup truck will remain a China-only affair, as PSA has no intention of launching it in global markets.

We’ll remind you that Peugeot has been selling a ‘Pick Up’ in Africa since 2017, which is a completely different vehicle that builds on the Zhengzhou Nissan Auto Rich New.

    Supposedly a Changan-PSA J/V, though the under-lying genes may be distinctly Isuzu, including the engines.

    It’s damage that the totally design wasn’t from Peugeot. Chinese are very bad…

    A huge improvement over the insulting Pick Up they sell in Africa (which is based of a Chinese copy of a 90ies Nissan pick up), and at least the interior looks definitely like a Peugeot, actually quite nice for a commercial vehicle; Definitely not worse than the Mercedes Navara I mean X-Class….
