The Geely CK is a sedan automobile from Chinese manufacturer, Geely Automobile. Production began in May, 2005. The "CK" name stands for "Freedom Ship" or "Free Cruiser".
The CK holds the distinction of being the first Chinese automobile ever displayed at an American auto show, although it was only shown to the press and not the general public. Geely plans to begin selling the model in Puerto Rico in 2007on the way to beginning sales in America the next year. The CK was also shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005 along with four other Geely models.
The CK is based on a South Korean design by Daewoo, Tower Metal, Wooshin Systems, and CES, which Geely licensed. Its 1.5 L engine is a Toyota Motor Corporation design, also licensed. It produces 94 hp (70 kW) at 6000 rpm. The automatic transmission is built in China, the first to be manufactured there.

Toyota-based engine

Looks like an 8A-FE. I believe the Haoqing donor, Xiali, used that engine.
From the angle of the photo the intake plenum casting looks uncomfortably close to the firewall rib. It's a tight fit at least.
Interestingly that engine was also used in the Rover's once built by Etsong in Qingdao.

Just for the information
I saw the car in egypt and I was once thinking of buying it
the engine here is a 1.6 not 1.5
the 1.5 sits in the Maple ( same engine )

" 1.6 16V EFI " was written on the gray engine of the ck and it produces 107hp at 6000 RPM .

looks the same as the pics posted by admin

the car is not photogenic from all angles , I mean from the side it looks wierd , from the back it looks like a Toyota Corolla Replica ..

the interior is not that bad like many reporters said on Detroit , In fact I kinda like it , its only the outside that really not going all together well

design wise not build wise ( haven't tested it to post any actual thoughts )

I drived a CK-1 once , but I dont own it
anyways , it feels good , but the engine sounds are wierd , for example when I am on the 1st gear , the engine makes a noise like the same noise any car makes when u are on reverse ...

anyways its full of plasticy stuff , but so is all the cars of the same pirce tag
I just adored the extra features it had ( abs / 6-cd changer / remote / airbags / power mirrors / power windows / headlight height and intensity controler / parking light / parking sensors ) all of the mentioned package are only available for higher class cars here , even my :( crashed palio has only ( ABS , 2 front power windows , parking light ) and misses all of the rest .
