This is the civilian version of the Beijing Auto BJ80 series, whose front and side views somewhat remind of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Even though Daimler owns a share in BAIC Motor, that doesn’t mean they have given their approval to this copycat design. In fact, they’ve tried to get the car banned, but apparently were unsuccessful. Compared to the military version (called BJ80J), the BJ80C has alloy wheels, a chrome grille and other details, and a more luxurious interior. It is powered by a 2.3-liter turbocharged engine with 250hp, which originates from the Saab brand, as SAIC bought the rights to a few platforms and engines after the bankruptcy of the Swedish brand.
