Arrow Landwind X8

According to article below Jiangling Motor is developing new SUV codenamed N350. It will be powered by common-rail diesel engines developed by Italian company VM Motori.
http://auto.sina.com.cn/news/2008-12...34440227.shtml





Article also writes that future SUV will be based on Ssangyong Rexton. There are also some spy pictures of camouflaged N350 SUV and pick-up. On those pictures I recognize upcoming Roewe SUV also based on South Korean Ssangyong althogh there is no mention of Roewe in text.

Roewe has the rights to use the Ssangyong design, but as far as I know there is no relationship between Jiangling and Ssangyong.
A license we didn't know about maybe?

The article mentioned above (autosina) describes the negotiations between Jiangling and Ssangyong, before the purchase of Ssangyong by SAIC. When SAIC bought the majority of Ssangyong, these negotations were broken off, but Jiangling was left with some projects including rebadged Ssangyong suv's and pickups. So these are not Roewes but Jianglings....

Thanks again erik for clearing up this dilemma.
That means Roewe and Jiangling SUV's will be based on Ssangyongs.

Yes, thanks for the clarification Laofan. I forgot about that agreement between Ssangyong and Jiangling which began in negotiations way back 6 years ago this month. Their plan of a 50-50 venture to build 25,000 units a year of the Musso and Rexton, never materialized.

But the agreement of around 2005? with VM Motori, to build common rail diesel engines, did materialize as we can see.

So the production of this Rexton-based model is legal afterall.

Now what about the production of the Rexton RX320, or Kyron (reported to be around now), at SAIC's Yizheng plant. When is that going to get off the ground?

look nice, the rear part look like peugeot or citroen models, aslo i think that this will be a good way for entering european markets, those x6 models are too old by design

Landwind shot to infamy with their Landwind X6 SUV, which rather prematurely went to Europe and was destroyed in a crash test. The crash test was carried out by ADAC, who seem to garner great pleasure in destroying Chinese made cars, the Brilliance BS6 also fell foul of ADAC. German safety standards company, TUV, retested the X6 and found that it met all European safety standards The new Landwind X8 SUV looks to be a massive design improvement on the old Isuzu Rodeo that made up the Landwind X6.

Details on the platform used, or chassis, are not currently available. Engines may possibly VM R425 2.5l diesel engines, and also a 2.5l gasoline R425DOHC engine from VM Motori.

Very nice SUV, I think it is better than the Rexton, less original, but with a simply clear line...
