The newest Chinese pickup truck turned out to be a cheap copy …


ZX Auto Weishi 1949 is made in the style of the American Ram 1500. The pickup will be offered with gasoline and diesel engines.

The first photos of the new ZX Auto Weishi 1949 have been published. This is the first full-size pickup from China, and it will go on sale from the beginning of 2022 at a price of 156-210 thousand yuan ($ 24,500 – $ 32,800). This is reported by the Autohome website.

The design of the ZX Auto Weishi 1949 was not new and very familiar. The fact is that the Chinese automaker copied the style of the Ram 1500 pickup. The wide grille, large headlights and pronounced fenders are characteristic features of the American model.

The Chinese pickup is somewhat more compact, so this is a kind of miniature copy of the Ram 1500:

  • Length – 5392 mm
  • Width – 2045 mm
  • Height – 1965 mm

An elongated (5692 mm) version will also be offered. At the heart of the ZX Auto Weishi is a steel frame and an independent front suspension.

Chopped lines prevail in the cabin, and the trim is diluted with aluminum-look inserts. The central panel has a large touchscreen display.

If an American pickup truck is equipped with large and powerful V8s, then the ZX Auto Weishi 1949 has more modest motors. From the start, a 2.3-liter 163-horsepower turbodiesel from Nissan Navara will be available to him, and later a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo four will be added. You can choose from a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, rear or four-wheel drive.

By the way, this is not the only Chinese copy of the American pickup. Recently, a model in the style of the Ford F-150 was presented in the Celestial Empire.
