The Chinese Peugeot Landtrek pickup truck carefully conceals its origin. The previous model was developed by Dongfeng, the present one is Changan. At the same time, the Chinese partners who had a hand in creating the car are not indicated anywhere in the documents. Although, it seems that the French have nothing to be ashamed of, because the car is intended for the markets of Africa and Latin America.
The car uses the Isuzu 1.9 turbodiesel unit, which develops 150 hp. and produces 350 N • m of torque. The second engine can be a turbocharged gasoline Mitsubishi 2.4, capable of developing 210 hp. and 320 N • m of torque. All this goodness comes with a six-speed gearbox. The choice is again a mechanical Getrag and an automatic Punch Powerglide.

The car is rear-wheel drive. No additional options are foreseen here. There is a transfer case with a downshift, as well as a forced rear differential lock from eLocker.
The set of the car includes six airbags, a descent assistant, optics with LED headlights, lane control and numerous cameras with sensors around the body. Sales are scheduled for late 2020. At the same time, the Chinese "Frenchman" has very sharp-toothed competitors in the face of Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Navara.
