The SUV market has seen a tough trend since 2022. Many manufacturers produce different off-road versions of their SUVs to make them more like SUVs. However, most of them are built on basis of urban SUVs, and even if they are as strong as Subaru Forester, they can only move ground clearance and gear ratio. Hardcore SUVs are a relatively rare category in recent years, because this part used to be an advantage for foreign brands, but due to emissions problems, many models cannot be sold normally, and price of some models is unacceptable for most people. . However, by beginning of 2023, this situation may improve. In 2023, several new cars of independent brands will be released.
The Tank 700 has attracted a lot of attention since it was unveiled at 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. Unlike its Tank 500 cousin, overall design of Tank 700 is much stronger. The front end uses ordinary SUV single headlights, and internal parts are relatively rich. With an inverted trapezoidal grille, it is really more powerful. The rear of car has a side-opening door and an external spare wheel design common to SUVs. The wide-body body also looks quite powerful.
Most importantly, mechanically it is powered by same 3.0t V6 engine as 500 tank. As for tank 500, its maximum power is 360 horsepower and peak torque is 500 Nm. 9AT gearbox and all wheel drive system. The non-load-bearing body also provides a better off-road foundation, and a better approach and departure angle is also more favorable for cross-country driving, fully exploiting benefits of model's platform.
Comments. As for prices of Tank 500, Tank 700 is expected to be in range of 300,000-400,000. And for hardcore SUVs in this price range, there is not much room, and even less with V6 engines and monocoque bodies. Besides looks, it takes time on acceptance. This is indeed a model worth looking forward to.
The first model released by Mengshi Auto Technology Co., Ltd. is expected to be called Mengshi 917 and positioned as a high-end hardcore SUV. The appearance of Mengshi 917 is very distinctive, very similar to appearance of some bulletproof models, and tough and futuristic design is quite recognizable. In terms of detail, it seems to be borrowed from design of military vehicles, and high waistline and wide-angle windshield make visual effect even better. The rear of car also has a design similar to a small backpack, but from sketches it does not look like a spare tire and may have other functions.
This vehicle will use a new intelligent off-road electric drive architecture. The four-wheel drive is expected to have a maximum output of 1,000 horsepower and a zero-to-60 sprint time of just 4.2 seconds. However, other information is temporarily unknown. Rumor has it that it will have over 10,000 Nm of torque at wheels, traction is truly brutal.
Comments: Mengshi 917 is relatively rare in China. Only GM Hummer EVs can have similar products, but latter is more expensive. Although performance and design are good, Mengshi 917 has a price tag of more than 700,000 yuan, which is relatively risky for a new model.
The BJ212 can be called our own car culture, and it's also one of earliest ideas people have about cars. After a short stop in production, new BJ212 will start up again. The new BJ212 basically repeats exterior design of old model. I think there is no need to explain this appearance much. The previous design is almost completely reproduced. In addition, a new chassis is used, and wheelbase is slightly shifted forward. coordination.
Mechanical improvements have also been made. Power system data is yet to be released and performance is expected to remain same.
Comments: Like a big toy, everyone will probably endure various problems 212, and even consider car repair as one of pleasures. The new vehicle may change in quality to make it more suitable for current environment of use. Given current SUV market, even 212 is still most affordable SUV on market after price increase.
I wonder if any of above models is your favorite model? Among above models, all have certain basic off-road characteristics, and some models have many modifications that are enough to meet needs of most people. It can be foreseen that in SUV market in future, share of Chinese models will increase, and to further enrich current market, better domestic models will be released. On other hand, we can also see changes in consumer tastes. In addition to meeting basic needs of transportation, an important indicator influencing consumer choice is also “is it fun”. level of perception gradually increases. Market diversification is naturally beneficial to consumers. By providing more choices, it also makes life more fun.
