In early May, dealers of the Chinese concern BAIC began to place orders for an updated version of the Beijing BJ40 Plus SUV. Now, the official start of sales has been announced.

The updated Beijing BJ40 Plus, which is considered the Chinese counterpart to the legendary Jeep Wrangler, will fall into the hands of the first buyers on May 27. The car received a new, more modern engine, as well as a slightly modified appearance. The exterior, as before, is similar in spirit to the American Wrangler. Of the innovations – grown wheel arches, optics on LED-matrices and a massive off-road body kit. In the car, multimedia appeared with a large touchscreen that supports voice commands.

The motor range of the novelty was replenished with an economical turbo engine from Haval F7, whose power was increased to 230 hp. The drive is full, and the 8F automatic transmission from ZF was chosen for the transmission role. On the “pre-reform” Beijing BJ40 Plus installed 2.3-liter 250-horsepower turbo engine from SAAB, working in conjunction with 6AKPP.

Such a brutal SUV costs from 159,800 yuan. SUV equipment includes advanced safety systems and useful comfort options.
