They are slowly gaining acceptance as Pickup Trucks. Not a great fan of buying from China , but their quality is inproving in leaps and bounds
their main attraction is a very low price.

Maybe they will start producing RVs as well. The quality couldn't be any worse than Indiana's.

Could be just the angle, but that looks like it's squatting quite a bit in the rear, considering the difference in the tires in the wheelwells.

Looks to be a China knockoff of a Toyota Tacoma.

Towing an antiquated square nose 5th with a Chinese short bed truck...what could possibly go wrong?

Aren't those trucks electric?

No twin turbo diesel like the Ranger.
Others have used these Chinese Pickups to row these Lightweight 5vers. Chinese are trying to unseat Ranger and Hilux with these. These Chinese Pickups would the equivalent in price to the Ford Maverick in the US
Agree 5ver is pretty old and cheap
