Chinese automaker Jiangling Motors has counterfeited the design of the Volkswagen Amarok.

The saying "old habits die hard" seems to be true as Chinese automakers have done it again, this time they copied the Volkswagen Amarok. The vehicle you are looking at is called Jiangling T7 and will enter production next month with an Isuzu-sourced 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine producing 100 bhp (75 kW) and a 2.2-liter gasoline engine rated at 110 bhp (82 kW).

Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) has been around for quite a while as the company was founded in 1952 and they mostly sell trucks. However, they also have a passenger car joint venture with Changan (Chang'an Automobile Group) which commercializes another controversial model, the Range Rover Evoque lookalike Landwind X7.
