Peugeot is offering the Landtrek pickup truck for Latin American markets. It’ll be launched in two phases: the first phase includes Mexico, Uruguay, Ecuador, Paraguay, Panama, Peru, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti and Chile, and the second phase includes Argentina, Brazil and Colombia.
The Peugeot Landtrek is a re-badged version of Kaicene F70 developed by Changan-PSA collaboration in China. As we can see, it is available in chassis cab, single cab and in double cab commercial variants as well.
The Landtrek’s off-roading credentials include a ground clearance of up to 235 mm (with 17- or 18-inch wheels); approach, departure and breakover angles of 29°, 27° and 25°, respectively; and a wading depth of 600 mm.
There’s also a shift-on-the-fly knob in the cabin for 2H (rear-wheel drive), 4H (4 High speed) and 4L (4 Low speed with 2.7:1 ratio) modes. The rear differential gets an eLocker system for extra traction on slippery surfaces.
Creature comforts in the cabin include a 10-inch HD touchscreen with 10 GB hard drive, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, and dual-zone climate control. Safety and driver assistance systems include 6 airbags, Hill Descent Control, Trailer Swing Control, Lane Departure Warning, and a 360-degree camera.
As for the powertrains, the Landtrek is available with turbocharged petrol and diesel powertrains and in RWD or 4WD configurations.
The 1.9-litre (1,910 cc) 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine develops 110 kW (150 hp) at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque between 1800-2800 rpm, and is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
