New BAIC BJ40 Model Unveils With Modern Design
August 23, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Finally introduced is the BAIC BJ40, second generation. Modern technology is featured in the off-road body-on-frame SUV, including a double screen in the interior, LED lighting, self-driving capabilities, etc.
A body-on-frame SUV from the first generation, the BJ40 is still available in China and other countries.
The first-generation BJ40’s external styling is reminiscent of the Jeep Wrangler, which is not unexpected given that BAIC is best known for its BJ80 SUV, a Mercedes-Benz G-Class clone. One of the first locally produced SUVs to gain popularity in China was the BJ40. However, it desperately needed a new generation, and now it has one.
The second-generation BAIC BJ40 borrows the full-sized SUV BJ60’s current design language, which the brand debuted last year. It is no longer a Jeep Wrangler knockoff; instead, it features an LED grille and rectangular headlamps.
The blocky dimensions and high bonnet line of the second generation remain. Other features include frameless doors, large sideview mirrors, sizable bumpers, and an abundance of plastic body trim. Another intriguing element is the two-piece tailboard. Additionally standard is a swing-out tailboard with a spare tire.
Inside, the new BJ40 is BAIC’s most cutting-edge SUV. In front of the digital instrument panel is a circular three-spoke steering wheel with design cues from the BJ60. A split screen that “floats” over the centre console is the primary feature of the BJ40.
The first display is the touch screen in the Centre console for the driver. The front passenger will receive the second one. Although the screen sizes aren’t known yet, they seem to be enormous.
Under the displays are the vents for the air conditioning and heating. Wireless charging pads, buttons, a retractable gear selector, and cup holders are all located in the center tunnel. The brand-new BJ40 has a five-seat interior, much like the previous model.
A HYCET 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 245 horsepower and 385 Nm of torque is also included.
An eight-speed ZF torque converter automatic gearbox transmits the power to the rear wheels (in normal mode). The drivetrain has a locking differential and a part-time four-wheel drive system.
On August 25, China will launch the pre-sale of the new BJ40 at the Chengdu Auto Show. The cost and other specifics are currently unclear. However, rumor’s claim that it would cost somewhere between Rs. 8 million and Rs. 12 million.
