Chinese crossover to join Dodge brand lineup – DRIVE

The mid-size SUV (4695 × 1885 × 1726 mm, between the axles 2710) has been sold in China since the fall of 2018 as the second generation. Prices are in the range of 126,800-169,800 yuan (1.43-1.91 million rubles). The 1.5T GDI petrol turbo engine (169 HP, 265 N • m) is mated only with the “automatic” Aisin.

The Stellantis Mexico branch, which has been managing an assembly plant in Toluca de Lerdo since 1968, has announced a new Dodge brand crossover. The Mexicans did not report the name of the model and the timing of its launch. But it quickly became clear that we were talking about a front-wheel drive SUV GAC GS5, which is offered in Russia with a 1.5 petrol turbo four (137 hp, 216 N • m), six-speed “mechanics” and “automatic” for 1,658,900-2,026,900 rubles.

The original GAC GS5 after restyling changed its name in the PRC to GS4 Plus, got hold of a turbocharger 2.0 (252 hp, 390 N • m) and an improved interior with digital tidy. Prices remained unchanged.

FIAT and GAC Motor became friends in 2009, and the partnership agreement was signed by Chinese President Hu Jintao and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. In the spring of 2010, the GAC FCA joint venture was launched, which to this day produces Jeep Cherokee, Compass, Large Commander and Renegade for the domestic market. There is only one crossover in the Dodge lineup – the “third” Durango sample 2010.
