Peugeot Landtrek Spotted In Jordan

First launched in Latin American and sub-Saharan African markets in late 2020, the Peugeot Landtrek pick-up truck was recently spotted in double cab, high riding guise at the French brand’s new, yet-to-be officially announced, Jordanian dealership. A departure from recent up-market passenger car offerings, the personal and work use Landtrek is expected to straddle the line with Peugeot’s commercial vehicle line, and is anticipated to go on sale in Jordan in coming months, once the official importer opens for business.

A durable mid-size truck built in and rear- and four-wheel-drive guises, efficient turbo-diesel engine and high ground clearance, the Landtrek is ideally suited for developing markets. Picking up where the tough Peugeot 504 saloon, estate and pick-up long left off, as rugged workhorses popular in developing markets, the Landtrek is instead a more dedicated vehicle, developed in collaboration with Chinese manufacturer, Changan and its Kaicene F70 version. Meanwhile inside, the Landtrek features optional three-passenger front bench and stylish, well-equipped and upmarket top spec cabin.

Assertively-styled with big grille and  sculpted surfacing, the Landtrek’ initial engine options include a pair of turbocharged four-cylinders, including 207BHP 2.4-litre petrol and 147BHP 1.9-litre Diesel, but Jordanian specification remains unconfirmed. With lesser engines also expected, the Landtrek is offered with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, low ratio transfer and locking rear differential. Using rugged body-on-frame construction and double wishbone front and live axle and leaf spring rear suspension, the Landtrek’s towing, cargo and off-road abilities are promising.
