    They're communists. Therefore, they do not have the type of free market competition we have that spurs originality and technological advances. They have been doing this sort of thing for a very long time and it isn't just vehicles.

    That's where the best knock-offs come from.

    I'd say headlights, hood, grill, and bumper are all pretty Tacoma-like, the rest looks kinda like a ford explorer... Kinda like they mated and had really ugly kids.

    The body actually looks like the pre-95 hilux but with a new taco front clip. I would bet that the suspension is the older style 86-95 IFS as well. Looks like China just buys bodies/vehicles from other manufatures and rebadges them.

    Being Chinese it will either explode, poison someone, or eventually end up on a dollar store shelf.
