Development work is still underway on Baojun’s all-new SUV for China. The crossover, referred to by Car News China as the GP60, was first seen nearly a year ago in January and was spotted again in February. The car was recently spotted once more, and surprisingly, it looked nearly the same as it did 12 months ago.
The Baojun SUV, which will join the Delta II-based 630 sedan and Gamma II-based Lechi hatchback in the brand’s lineup once complete, was supposed to make its debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April, however the launch has now been delayed until later this year. According to Car News China, sales could begin as early as the second fiscal quarter.
The details of the GP60 SUV are still unclear, but it’s said to be powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 136 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque. The model caught testing was a six-speed manual version, however a six-speed automatic should also be on offer. A few developments appear to have been made since we last the SUV, including the addition of a production-looking grille and wheels, less camouflage and different side mirrors.
The SUV could sell for between 110,000 yuan ($17,691) and 140,000 yuan ($22,512 USD) when it hits Chinese dealerships next year.
