This is the new JAC Ruichi II pickup truck, a truck that was famous long before it was born. When we saw the first prototype back in early 2012 it looked very much like a copy of the Ford F-150. Ford said it sued JAC and won, and in the end the ‘JAC 4R3‘ never made it to the market. JAC went back to the drawing board, erased the Ford nose and changed it for this new design with a gigantic JAC-logo and two far chrome strips.

JAC became famous worldwide in January when we showed pictures of a pickup prototype that looked very much like the Ford F-150. The first story on the JAC 4R3 is still the most commented story on this website. JAC planned to show the 4R3 on the Beijing Auto Show in April but Ford hired lawyers and it didn’t happen. JAC, likely wisely, decided instead to redesign the thing.
The grille is completely new. Very chromed, perfectly in line with the manic chrome-trend that keeps all automakers in China busy adding more and more of the shiny stuff. The JAC-logo is the biggest brand logo on a Chinese vehicle I have ever seen. Impressive. Head lights new too, more round and sporty. This truck might actually look better than that old Ford…

Last week we met a truck carrying 14 Peugeots on top, but it can always be better! Here we have a truly gigantic transporter with 16 JAC cars on its top deck and at least another 8 vehicles below. The JAC transporter sets a new record, as far as we know… The truck was seen in a traffic jam on the Jingtai Highway nearby the great city of Jinan in Shandong Province.
