Chinese Automaker Builds Picture Perfect Copy Of Ford F-150 Pickup


Despite some advances in design, the intransigence of China‘s copyright enforcers means the country’s car companies still ripoff popular designs with glee. The newJAC 4R3 pickup is obviously a copy of the American Ford F-150, but it’s not a bad one.

Though not precisely to scale, the new JAC truck looks somewhat like a Ford F-150 Raptor crew cab, with a vaguely Dodge Ram-esque greenhouse. There’s no info on whether this is a 2×4 or 4×4 pickup, but they’ll sell a ton of them in China, South America, and Africa either way.

Don’t worry Ford, it’s the sincerest form of flattery. At least they’re no longer copying Chevy trucks, right?
