Does it, ever stop? Here we have a new and yet nameless SUV from Dongfeng which loox very much like the Cadillac SRV, albeit a few sizes smaller. The car is produced by Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor, a subsidiary of Dongfeng Motor that makes rugged pick-up trucks and cheap SUV’s for the Chinese car market. It is likely based on the last-gen Kia Sorento that is still made in China by the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture. Dongfeng-Yueda is yet another subsidiary of Dongfeng Motor.

Chinese media say it will be launched in the first half of 2013, priced between 80.000 and 120.000 yuan. Engine is likely a 2.0 4-cylinder from Nissan. This engine is used in various Nissan’s that are made by the Dongfeng-Liuzhou-Nissan joint venture. This joint venture makes commercial vehicles and sells them under the Nissan-brand and under the Dongfeng-brand. This new Dongfeng-Caddy is so a truly ‘joint-venture’ from several Dongfeng subsidiaries. Whether Dongfeng-headquarters knows about all this is not entirely sure, these subsidiaries have a lot of say in their own affairs. It is also very unlikely that either Kia or Nissan knows anything at all.

    [...] ANOTHER CHINESE RIPOFF Another day, another Chinese ripoff. This time it’s Dongfeng copying the Cadillac SRX. As you can see it incorporates many styling cues from the Caddy. According to Car News China, the unnamed vehicle will go on sale next year with a starting price around $12,500. But that’s a bargain compared to the SRX, which costs close to $68,000 in China.

    [...] Dongfeng has recently showcased a nameless SUV, which looks much similar to Cadillac SRX. It looks like the smaller version of Cadillac SUV. It is developed by Dongfeng Liuzhou, a sub division of Dongfeng Motor, which makes rugged trucks and SUVs for the Chinese auto market. They make really cheap SUVs (in terms of price) when compared to other automakers, including Lexus, Cadillac, and many more. Cadillac’s new SUV is based on the last generation Kia Sorento, which is produced in China by the joint venture of Dongfeng-Kia-Yueda. Dongfeng- Yueda is yet another sub-brand of the main Dongfeng automaker. The unnamed SUV from Dongfeng will be launched in Chinese market in the first half of 2013 and price ranges from 80.000 to 120.000 yaun. Under the hood, it is most likely to get Nissan’s 2.0-L four-cylinder engine, which will be made by Dongfeng- Nissan joint venture. They both make commercial vehicles and sell under Dongfeng-brand and Nissan-brand. This new Dongfeng-Cadillac is a truly ‘joint-venture’, though they haven’t revealed anything about the new SUV fully. The price of Cadillac SRX is around 500.000 yaun, which is bit costlier than Dongfeng SUV. Credits: Carnewschina [...]
