The Catch Behind GM’s New $9,000 Flatbed Pickup
That catch is this truck will most likely never make it to the U.S. The Zhengtu is a compact crew cab truck with that can seat five and has a 6.5-foot bed with sides that fold down like the tailgate to create a large flatbed platform. The sides open a full 180 degrees down to offer easy access to the bed.
The truck is a value starting at RMB 58,800 or around $9,000 USD. Although you’re paying for what you get, power-wise. The Zhengtu houses a 1.5L gas engine that generates just 99 horsepower.
The pickup has adopted Wuling’s previous design elements to appeal to younger consumers as well as people who lead an active lifestyle. Safety features include the anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution.
