Ghandhara Nissan is all set to launch the JAC T6 double cabin pickup truck in Pakistan. The company recently got brownfield status and is stepping up to establish a firm foothold in the growing sector of pickup truck market.
Initially, JAC T6 will be launched as an imported Complete Build-up Unit (CBU). If the truck gets good market reception locally then Gandhara will assemble the truck at its manufacturing plant at Port Qasim, Karachi.
According to some sources, two exclusively made RHD (Right Hand Drive) units of the T6 pickup are already headed to Pakistan for extensive dynamic testing.
Let’s take a look at the specifications of the vehicle and what it has to offer;
The T6 truck has a 2.0L turbocharged common rail diesel engine under its hood. The pickup is available in both 4×2 and 4×4 configurations with an electronic 4-wheel drive selector. The rail diesel engine generates 134 hp at 3600 rpm and 320 Nm of torque at 1600-2600 rpm.
The international variant of the pickup includes top-of-the-line features like satellite navigation, tire pressure sensor, radio, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows, air conditioning, central locking, infotainment system, USB port etc. Furthermore, T6 comes with 6-speed manual transmission system equipped with a multi-function steering wheel as well.
The vehicle has pretty decent safety features as well. It comes with airbags along with the electronic brake distribution and anti-lock braking system. It has also got a 4-star rating on the Chinese car safety assessment program called C-NCAP.
As for the loading capacity, the truck can put almost all of its competitors to shame. T6 can pull up a load of as much as 1041 kilograms.
Have a glance at what the pickup actually looks like;
As far as the price is concerned the vehicle is expected to have a competitive price tag. Ghandhara Nissan is looking to take the competitive edge so T6 is will be priced somewhere around Rs 2.6 million.
It can’t be said with complete certainty that all of the above-mentioned features will be available in the Pakistani variant of the truck. We will have to wait for the launch to say anything with surety.
