The expectations for the arrival of the new Peugeot pick-up are very high. There are several people related to the brand who have long been waiting for another alternative in the successful segment of the Chilean market.
We now know that the regional launch of the Peugeot Landtrek will be on November 24th. The first countries to receive it will be Mexico and Central American nations, while in Chile we will have to wait a little longer, until June 2021. It is important to note that in markets like ours this same product has already been launched under the Changan emblem.
The Peugeot Landtrek arises from an alliance of the French brand with the aforementioned Chinese brand Changan, which in turn has a sub-brand called Kaicene, aimed at commercial vehicles. The fruit of this ambitious project will be marketed in markets in Latin America, South Africa, and other regions, as Kaicene, Changan, and as Peugeot, depending on the market.
We know that there will be versions with a single cab, double cab, and body chassis. It will also offer gasoline and diesel engines, with an automatic or manual gearbox and in work versions. The turbodiesel is 1.9 liters with 150 horses and 350 Nm associated with a six-gear manual gearbox ( you can read our test of this engine installed in the Changan Hunter ), while the gas station variant corresponds to a 2.4-liter capacity block, with 210 Hp and 320 Nm of torque, associated with a manual or an automatic gearbox, both sixth.
Both engines can be arranged with rear or four-wheel drive, with an electronic selector and electronic rear differential lock.
