As early as January 2019, the winter testing spy photos of the all-new Weichai Enranger 7-seat SUV SUV appeared in China’s media frequently, of course, due to the poor sales of Enranger brad, even many Chinese consumers heard the brand for the first time

Since 2009, Weichai Group has controlled Chongqing Jiachuan Automobile and started to lay out the passenger car market in China. In January 2014, Weichai, which has been planning for many years, finally released the only passenger brand “Enranger”.
From the declaration images, the overall design of the Weichai Enranger U70 is simple and stylish, and the large front grille will provide two styles to meet the aesthetic needs of different consumers. The headlights are connected to the front grille, the front fog lights are on the sides of front bumper. It seems it changed to a new badge “VGV”. There aren’t too many lines on the side of the new model, the tough waistline extends from the front to the taillights.
At the rear end, the design of the Weichai Enranger U70 continues its overall style, simple and layered. In addition, body size are 4806/1870/1691mm, the wheelbase is 2800mm, it is slotting in a mid-size SUV.

In addition, Enranger U70 will be available in 5 and 7-seat layouts. In terms of power, the Weichai Enranger U70 will be powered by a 1.5T engine with maximum power of 150 ps.
The interior is a fusion of various elements, mainly comes to the common style. The air-conditioning vents adopt a bar-style design, while the infotainment screen and the central control are almost integrated each other, trying to create a sense of high-grade, but the outlines are stiff, the function button design is quite rough, we noticed the dashboard is still the ordinary pointer type dashboard.
Enranger is still a low-end Chinese vehicle brand, the price of Enranger U70 is expected to be still sitting in low-end market, to compete with Changan Oshan..
