chinese pickups truckin right along

Curious about the Chinese pickup truck market? China Car Times gives a rundown of what they consider the best-looking pickups offered to the people of the PRC. Their favorite is the Big Diesel God, with styling copped from Chevy and power by Mitusbishi or Toyota. They're also fond of the Great Wall Wingle, which looks more cute-ute than pickup. The Photon SaPu and Zhongxing Grand Tiger round out their round-up. From the looks of it, if the Chinese ever want to launch an attack on the small truck market in the U.S., they already have some pretty good ammo in their arsenal – not to mention some of the coolest model names for trucks since the Chevy LUV (Light Utility Vehicle).

    Tercel is an archaic spelling of tiercel, a kind of falcon, Forenza sounds both like an Italian place and girl's name (either of which work for cars), Astra means stars, and Camry is the English transliteration of a Japanese word for crown. Just 'cuz you asked =].
