The truck of the French brand will be produced primarily in Latin America. The official debut may take place earlier than planned.

The fact that the PSA concern and the Chinese company Changan in the common work are developing a frame pickup was told back in 2017. The “Celestial” truck was shown first, the models gave the name Kaicene F70 (another name – Kaicheng), in the homeland this model was already sold. And soon the twin of the F70 under the Peugeot brand will be presented. The test version of the nameless car was already caught in the spy lenses, but now at the disposal of the Argentinean Autoblog were pictures of the product version with almost no masking.

Pictures were obtained in Chile, and the release of the Peugeot model is expected to be established in Uruguay, at the same enterprise where Peugeot Expert and Citroen Jumpy are being assembled today.

The appearance of the front end greatly distinguishes the car from its counterparts: the Peugeot has a different bumper, radiator grille, headlights and fog lights. Almost vertical LED sections are located under the head optics – together with luminous strips integrated into the headlights, they form “boomerangs” of daytime running lights.

We do not have high-quality pictures of the interior of the Peugeot pickup. But, judging by the previously posted spy photos, inside the model almost almost repeats the related Changan Kaicene F70. The interior, by the way, is executed in the Peugeot iCockpit corporate concept.

As for engines: F70 can be purchased with Yunnei Power D20TCIE 1.9 turbodiesels (licensed version of the Isuzu unit, 150 hp, 350 Nm) and Isuzu 2.5 (JE4D25Q5A variant with 129 hp and 320 Nm, JE4D25Q6A modification – 150 hp and 360 Nm), as well as with the Mitsubishi 4K22D4T 2.4 gasoline “turbo four” (211 or 218 hp, 320 Nm). All engines so far work only with a six-speed manual gearbox, later a car may appear in a Chinese car.

It is not yet clear whether a Peugeot pickup will appear in Europe. Changan is going to sell his Kaicene F70 outside China. Moreover, according to preliminary information, a pickup truck from Changan may come to our country. At home, gasoline F70 is offered from 92,800 yuan, diesel – from 99,800 yuan
