Dongfeng make their own Paladin
Dongfeng Ri-Chan, Nissans JV partner have knocked out their own version of the Nissan Paladin, and stuck their own label on it.
Under the Dongfeng Nissan JV agreement, Dongfeng gets to produce its own range of pick up trucks (and now the Paladin) and label them as their own. The looks, and the components used are usually pretty much the same as the Nissan offerings but come at a much lower price.
The new Ao Ding, as it is now known, will cost from 120,000 to 170,000rmb which is a lot cheaper than the 150,000 280,000rmb that Nissan want for the Paladin.
