Peugeot to take on Africa with new Pick-Up

21.06.2017

Peugeot has confirmed its re-entry to ever growing double cab pick-up market with the simply titled Pick-Up aimed at North and West African markets.

Essentially a rebadged version of the Chinese market DongFeng Rich, itself a reworked D22 generation Nissan Navara currently sold in South Africa as the NP300, the Pick-Up comes powered by a 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine developing 85 kW / 280 Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, and sees the French marque's return to be pick-up segment since the South American only 207 derived Hogger ended production three years ago.

Differing only from its Chinese sibling by virtue of a different grille, revised front and rear lights and bold Peugeot lettering on the tailgate in the same mould as legendary 404 and 504, the Pick-Up will also be offered with a choice of rear-or-four wheel drive, the latter complete with low range, and sport a payload of 815 kilograms with ground clearance rated between 210 mm and 215 mm.

Production will commence in September although it is unlikely that the Pick-Up will make its way to South Africa anytime soon.
