This is the new Hengtian Auto T3 pickup truck. It will be launched on the Chinese auto market in the first quarter of next year, priced around 90.000 yuan. When the first spy shots of the T3 appeared in June Hengtian was criticized by Chinese media because the T3 looked a bit too much like the Volkswagen Amarok. We agreed at the time, but the production version doesn’t look like a copy that bad.

It is refreshing to see a Chinese car company copying a German pickup truck instead of yet another shoddy American product. This is the Hengtian T3, an almost 100% perfect copy of the Volkswagen Amarok, which in actually and only made in Argentina.
The Hengtian T3 will slot above the existing Hengtian T1 (Chevy!) and Hengtian T2, the T3 will hit the Chinese car market later this year, priced around 70.000 yuan or 11.000 USD. The Amarok is currently not available in China, but that might change, and costs around 35.000 dollar in the US.
