Here is a new model from Zhongxing called Weihu (Grand Tiger). It was introduced at the Shenzhen car show in August. Grand Tiger series will go on sale in August priced at the lowest 89.8 thousand yuan. There are diesel engines and petrol engines with 2WD and 4WD. It looks quite a lot like the US-made Toyota Tundra.

Why oh why do they have to copy the looks of a Toyota Tundra??? That is soooooo stupid!!! :mad:

Just how hard is it to come up with a unique look, especially a truck? :nono:

Actually I maybe incorrect. I read on CSS that the Zhongxing SUV looks to be based onto the Mitsubishi Nativa / Montero Sport / Challenger. Don't know if this is a legitimate use of IP though.





So the Weihu maybe based off of the previous generation Mitsubishi Triton...





The side profiles, cutlines and windows look quite similar imo.

Zhong Xing Grand Tiger

I think the Grand Tiger looks really great, I wonder if and when they export it, they will be able to compete with American made trucks in the USA?

thats a copy of the toyota hilux/tacoma, i don't know why these companies (isuzu, toyota etc.) odn't sue these fools. how lazy have you got to be, people think Porsche are bad but they can argue that they don't want to spoil a winning thing, these chinese car companies can't and are therefore among the worst in the world, even the koreans and malaysians have the dignity to be bought by bigname companies so that they can legally use their designs, seriously someone has gotta tell these companies whats what!:thumb:

The front reminds me of new Mazda BT.

They have Changed so many things in the car, is difficult to know what truck they copied. :confused: But from the Front doors design, it must be the previous generation Hilux/Tacoma. It has nothing to do with the mistu L200. The car looks Ok though, I think I could consider one.
