The Maxus brand, owned by the Chinese corporation SAIC, will present an SUV called Territory at the Chengdu Auto Show. The newcomer aims to compete with the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 and is built on the chassis of the D90 Pro model. The frame all-terrain vehicle will offer several interior layout options but will receive a single engine: a 2.0 Bi-Turbo diesel unit with a capacity of 218 horsepower, coupled with an eight-band automatic transmission.
The Maxus Territory SUV aims to compete with the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 and uses the D90 Pro frame chassis. The size of the wheelbase (2950 mm) coincides with it, although the dimensions are different. Apparently, Territory will be released in two versions, so the Chinese media indicate two lengths: 5046 and 5214 millimeters. Length, width, height D90 Pro — 5005×1932×1875 millimeters.
Under the hood of the Territory, a 2.0 Bi-Turbo diesel engine with a capacity of 218 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque will be registered. The box is an eight—band ZF automatic. The same engine is put on the D90 Pro, although it also has a 2.0 TGI gasoline “turbo” (218 hp, 350 Nm). Apparently, the Territory will retain both a plug-in all-wheel drive and a system for selecting driving modes with seven profiles: Auto, Eco, Sport, “mud”, “snow”, “sand”, and “stones”.
