The civilian Chinese ersatz-HUMMER we had showed you here isn’t really for sale to civilians. Car News China had a great story a while ago about China’s Dongfeng getting their hands legally on a Cummins engine by making a civilian version that no civilian can buy. Now, Car News China (which must be following the dealings of China’s Dongfeng for a living) has a story about a Chinese ersatz-Hummer that even a lowly civilian like myself might be able to buy.
The peacetime Hummer is, says Car News China, “based on the EQ2050 but with a very different style, more like the Hummer H2 than the Humvee.” Not much is known about the demilitarized truck, except that it “will use a new petrol engine instead of the American diesels that power the military version.” Those inscrutable Chinese. Now that they would have a chance to sell an American diesel to the public, they don’t want to. More pictures at Car News China.
