The manufacturer is bringing its small trucks down under

 

Chinese truck maker Jiangling Motors (JMC) has made a play for the Australian light-duty market with the local launch of its Conquer truck this week.

Arriving with a $32,000 pricetag, the new truck range is shipping in two models – with GVM ratings ranging from 4.5 tonne to 7.5 tonne – and two different power ratings.

The smaller models will be powered by the company’s 2.4-litre high-pressure direct-injection diesel engine that pumps out 120hp (90kW) and 315Nm (232 ft-lb) of torque.

The larger models will feature a 3.0-litre engine, which ups the output to 150hp (110kW).

Both engines, through the use of SCR AdBlue, meet the Euro 5 emissions standard and will be matched with a Getrag six-speed manual transmission.

It is understood the vehicles will be available with ABS brakes, air-conditioning, FM radio, CD player, auxiliary inputs, and a number of in-cab storage options.

Whether airbags, cruise control or ESC will be available as added extras is yet to be revealed.

Displayed at the launch with and without steel tray bodies, the Conquer trucks will begin at $31,990 and run up to $39,990.
