Proven engine

From BAIC's joint-venture operations with Suzuki Motors of Japan, the Freedom features a license-built Suzuki K14B-A gasoline engine

Producing 94hp and passing the critical hundred mark with 115Nm of torque, the time-tested engine is from the same K14B series powering popular MPVs and sedans

Large size and load

As big and optionally with as many passengers as a sub-compact sedan, much bigger than "multi-cab" mini-trucks

Rear cargo decks are as long as on mid-size pickup trucks

Passenger and cargo capacity of over 900kg, gross vehicle weight of nearly 2 tons

Solid build

Durable with unique single-body construction

Cargo bed is not a seperate box but is welded to the back of the crew cab (elegantly making it more rigid while saving on weight and production cost)

Smooth driving

Semi-forward cab puts the front seats behind (not on top of) the front wheels, making things less bouncy--better control for the driver, more comfortable ride for everyone

Long 2.7m wheelbase and better weight balance of mid-front engine under the front seats (and also behind the front wheels) work together to deliver enhanced stability when turning
