Self-driving is now a way of life and entertainment that many people choose, after all, it is more fun to travel by your own car than by high speed train. Of course, the requirements of the car for self-driving tours are still relatively high, especially to some areas with more complex environments, such as Tibet, the desert and so on. Therefore, this issue we will introduce 3 hardcore SUVs suitable for self-driving cross-country, I hope it will be helpful to friends who are choosing a car.
The first model to be introduced is the mu-X Ranger.
In fact, there are not many well-known models under Jiangxi Isuzu, with the exception of the Ranger, which is also well known in the off-road world. The car guide price of 18.18-25.38 million, the recommended model 2020 1.9T automatic 4WD Powerful Edition 5-seater, guide price of 212,800, the price is still relatively generous.
As a hard-core off-road vehicle, the appearance of the Ranger can still give people a bright feeling, especially the front, the shape is very complex. The upper part is trimmed with a lot of chrome trim, and the headlight clusters on both sides are still very sharp, but it's a pity that both the near and far lights are halogen light sources. The sides of the car are very square, and the rear is even designed as a square structure, which is also the style preferred by many hardcore off-roaders.
As for the size, the Ranger's length is 4830mm and wheelbase is 2845mm, positioning it as a medium-sized SUV. because of the five-seat layout, the space is still very good, a passenger of 1m8m tall sits in the front row, after the seat is adjusted to the lowest, the head space has four fingers. Keeping the front row position unchanged to the rear row, the head space is one fist and the leg space is one fist and four fingers. The middle floor bulge is small, so it is still relatively easy to sit three people in the back row.
Compared to the exterior, the interior of the Ranger is honestly still rather monotonous, giving a more rugged feel overall. Only the radio panel in the middle of the center console, there is no screen, the LCD meter is not to think about. Steering wheel size and feel is quite good, the shape is also relatively atmospheric, pointing should also be good. As for the configuration, it is equipped with 8 airbags, rear parking radar, leather steering wheel, one button lift for all windows, etc.
It is not difficult to see that the practical configuration is relatively small, such as air conditioning is manual, only one function of the exterior mirrors are electrically adjustable, far and near light is halogen light source. And the main and passenger seats are manually adjustable, there is no heating and ventilation, the seats are fabric, and there is no keyless entry and start function. The configuration can basically be saved, but for a car landing nearly 250,000, such a configuration is still relatively shabby.
Of course, for an off-road vehicle, the most critical factor to measure the value is definitely the off-road capability, and in this regard the Ranger always does not disappoint. First of all, the power is equipped with a 1.9T diesel engine with a maximum horsepower of 166 hp and a peak torque of 360 Nm, matched with a 6AT transmission, the diesel engine is still very suitable for off-road, and the strong explosive power can pass some complex roads more easily. Secondly, the Ranger is also equipped with a time-share four-wheel drive system and rear axle differential lock, the body structure is naturally non-load bearing design, and some 26 degrees of approach angle and 21 degrees of departure angle, coupled with the minimum ground clearance of 225mm, can maximize the protection of off-road capabilities.
Of course, the Mako Ranger also has many shortcomings. First of all, the overall material is general, the sound insulation inside the car is not very good, low-speed driving is not very obvious, but when driving at high speed, the communication of people inside the car are inaudible. Secondly, the value retention rate is somewhat low, if the car is replaced in about 5 years, it is relatively not very cost effective.
The second model to be introduced is Great Wall's Tank 300.
The tank has now become a separate off-road vehicle brand for Great Wall, showing that Great Wall does want to build this series with care. The Tank 300, as the first model of the Tank, also lives up to expectations, and its performance is indeed very eye-catching. The car guide price of 195,800-233,000, the recommended model is 2021 off-road version of the 2.0T Conqueror, guide price of 213,800, the price is still very good.
There is no doubt that the appearance of the Tank 300 is certainly one of the important factors in its success. The overall shape is very dominant. The design of the front face is highly recognizable, especially the headlight set, the main body is a round design, the middle is separated by a horizontal light belt, the headlight set uses a matrix light source, for this price point is really rare. The new tank LOGO in the middle of the network is very eye-catching, some think the original WEY LOGO is better, this is a matter of opinion.
Compared with the front, the side of the Tank 300 presents a more wild atmosphere, with all-black wheels, wide wheelbrow, plus the square body and the external spare tire at the rear, completely a standard off-road vehicle. The tank 300 is positioned as a compact SUV, but its size is close to that of a medium-sized SUV, with a length of 4760mm, a width of 1930mm, a height of 1927mm and a wheelbase of 2750mm. it can be seen that its height and width are basically the same, so it looks very wide and dominant.
As for space, naturally, is also the advantage of the tank 300, after all, domestic cars in this area will certainly be more understanding of the country. After the seat is adjusted to the lowest level, the head space is one fist and three fingers, which is very generous. Keep the seat unchanged to the back row, head space is nearly two fists, leg space is close to three fists, cross a two-legged are not a problem. However, the middle seat cushion is a bit short, and the backrest is hard, not very comfortable for a long time.
Again, it is the off-road capability of the off-road vehicle that is of paramount importance, and in this regard, the Tank 300 is equally excellent. First of all, the power is equipped with a 2.0T gasoline engine with a maximum horsepower of 227 hp and a peak torque of 387 Nm, matched with an 8AT gearbox, the power is perfectly adequate. In addition, the car also adopts non-load-bearing body, and is equipped with a time-sharing four-wheel drive system and front and rear axle differential locks.
Not only that, the approach angle of the tank 300 reaches 33 degrees, the departure angle is 34 degrees, the longitudinal passing angle is 23.1 degrees, the minimum ground clearance is 224mm, and the maximum wading depth is 700mm, the parameters are much better than the Mako. Therefore, in the off-road capability, the tank 300 has the strength and the traditional off-road powerhouse Shepherd, Prado and other cars to arm-wrestle.
Of course, the tank 300 also has to spit out the place. First of all, the storage space is a bit small, the storage compartment on the door panel is too small, basically can not put too much stuff. Secondly, the car's suspension damping effect is not very good, over the speed bump bump feeling stronger.
The last model to be introduced is the Jiangling Ford Roadrunner.
Compared to the Ranger and Tank 300, the price of the Roadshaker will be higher, its guide price of 275,800-374,800, the recommended model is 2020 2.3T gasoline automatic 4WD Elite Edition 5-seater, the guide price of 287,800, the terminal has a few thousand discounts, the actual reference price of less than 280,000.
The front is a family design of Jiangling Ford, with three thick silver trim strips inside the nearly elliptical mesh, and the general shape of the headlights on both sides, which are closely connected to the mesh. The front guard below the front end also uses silver trim, increasing the premium feel of the entire front end.
The side shape of the body is more urban SUV, equipped with 265/65 R17-inch tires of a smaller size, looks very petty, and the shape is also relatively ordinary. In terms of size, like the Ranger, the Roadrunner is also positioned as a mid-size SUV, but the overall size is one circle larger. The length is 4892mm, the height is 1837mm, and the wheelbase is 2850mm, so all the data is quite eye-catching. And because it is a five-seat model, so space is not to worry about, full seats are also very generous.
And in terms of off-road performance, the Roadrunner is also very strong. First of all, the power is equipped with a 2.3T gasoline engine with a maximum horsepower of 275 hp and a peak torque of 455 Nm, matched with a 10AT transmission. This powertrain itself is very powerful, and it is more than enough to pull this set of large body with a total weight of more than 2.3 tons. In addition, the Roadster is equipped with full-time four-wheel drive system and multi-plate clutch, while the non-load bearing body and rear axle differential lock are naturally standard. However, the approach angle is 29.5 degrees, the departure angle is 25 degrees, and the wading depth is 800mm, which is relatively average.
Of course, the Roadrunner also has many slots. First of all, compared to the imposing appearance, the interior is too old-fashioned, the steering wheel is still plastic, the center screen is also 8 inches, are 2021, landing about 300,000 cars or such interior configuration is really some of the past. Secondly, the whole car noise control is not very good, starting engine sound, fast speed after the tire noise and wind noise is more obvious, general comfort.
Comments: The above three hardcore crossover overall strength is still very strong, and their respective advantages and disadvantages at a glance. Pastoral Ranger as a joint venture model, the price is quite generous, and space is not bad off-road ability, or diesel version, but the configuration is low, general comfort. The tank 300 is very versatile in all aspects, handsome appearance, rich configuration, more importantly, strong off-road performance, price conscience, both off-road can also be used in the city roads, is a very high cost performance model. And shake the road is positioned slightly higher, the appearance of strong power, off-road configuration is rich, but the regular comfort configuration is too little, more suitable to simply play off-road. So, which of these three cars do you think is the most valuable? Welcome to leave a message to discuss, interested friends can point a concern, we will see you next issue.
