Not long ago, we reported that SAIC Maxus will bring a variety of modified models to Chengdu auto show, and also released the official picture of modified T90 pickup. Recently, we once again obtained the model of SAIC pickup truck to participate in Chengdu auto show, that is, SAIC Niu Datong T90 pickup truck Taklimakan rally version. The car has been professionally modified and has reached the racing level. If this year’s ring tower rally can be held, the car may appear on the track.
SAIC cattle pickup Taklimakan rally version is still based on T90 pickup, but it has been professionally modified to better adapt to the conditions of the rally. The whole vehicle is painted in red, white and black, which is very eye-catching. The front face maintains the original style to the greatest extent, and the polygonal chrome plated air inlet grille is retained. However, the lower part of the bumper is cut to improve the approach angle. A metal guard is installed at the bottom of the engine, and the red trailer anchor point is exposed to facilitate rescue. In order to improve the intake quality, a high-level intake pipe is installed on the right side of the vehicle body, and a sand collecting cup is installed on the top. Wheels and tires have also been modified to use Jiatong at70 all terrain tires. And the chassis suspension part has also been modified to adapt to the high-intensity use of rally. The cargo box of the vehicle is equipped with reinforced roll cage and spare wheel.
The interior of the vehicle has also been professionally modified for racing. Firstly, the roll cage in the vehicle has been installed, and the redundant trim panels on the mass production vehicle have been removed to reduce the weight of the whole vehicle to the greatest extent. The dual screen design is reserved to display the basic information of the vehicle. The steering wheel and bucket seats are also specially prepared for the event, and more event related equipment is designed in front of the passenger car. From the appearance of the vehicle, the rear seat of the vehicle may have been removed, and a cooling fan is designed at the rear window.
The power has not been exposed. It is expected to be equipped with a 2.0T dual turbocharged diesel engine proud of SAIC, with a maximum power of 160kW and a maximum torque of 500N · M. the ring tower version of the transmission part adopts a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Conclusion: as the vehicle with the largest torque in the domestic pickup market, SAIC T90 pickup has a torque of 500N · m, which is really amazing. However, this is only in terms of data. The real strength in power needs to be verified, and participating in the Taklimakan rally is undoubtedly a very rare verification opportunity. We very much look forward to this year’s ring tower rally to see if the “SAIC cow” is good or not.
