BAIC has formally introduced the brand-new BJ60 SUV for the Chinese market. The state-owned business aims its midsize SUV to compete with vehicles like the GWM Tank 500, Trumpchi GS8, and Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
But the BJ60 is a true four-wheel-drive body-on-frame off-road SUV, unlike the majority of its crossover-SUV competitors. It appears to be smoother and more refined than BJ40.
BJ60 sports a 48V mild hybrid 48V motor and a 2-liter turbocharged engine. Its maximum output is therefore 267 horsepower and 406 Nm of torque. Its peak speed is 180 km/h and features an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The BJ60 boasts nine separate driving modes and partial four-wheel drive with front, middle, and rear differential locking. According to BAIC, the BJ60's hybrid technology enables a zero-to-hundred acceleration time of six seconds and a 1,000 km range.
BJ60 contains a number of contemporary characteristics, such as:
BJ60 is a pretty pricey D-plus class SUV. The price of the large SUV ranges from the equivalent of Rs. 7.5 million to Rs. 9 million. With its pricing, BAIC's new SUV will struggle to compete with SUVs of a similar design in China.
