The Beijing BJ40 SUV from the Chinese BAIC costs almost half the price of the original Wrangler. But outwardly the “heavenly” SUV borrowed a lot from its American counterpart.

BAIC has revealed a new version of its Beijing BJ40 SUV, known for its resemblance to the legendary Jeep Wrangler. We are talking about a special off-road car, called the BJ40 Rainforest Crossing Edition. Such an SUV was thoroughly modified so that it can feel confident on any off-road. Not without significant changes in terms of design.

So, the car gets very large-sized metal bumpers, spectacular plastic wheel arch extensions, underbody protection, as well as a reinforced and upgraded suspension – with its help it was possible to increase the clearance. From the standard SUV, the novelty can also be distinguished by tinted alloy wheels with wide rubber. For an extra charge, cars will be equipped with a convenient roof rack, a winch and a snorkel.

The BJ40 in the Rainforest Crossing Edition version is powered by a 2.3-liter 231-horsepower turbo engine from SAAB, working in conjunction with a six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. Such an SUV costs 280 thousand yuan. BAIC offers the buyer a car with a virtual dashboard, leather trim, modern multimedia with a “soaring” touch screen, video surveillance cameras and more.
