A look at the new Peugeot bakkie in South Africa – with pricing

French motoring brand Peugeot has unveiled its pick-up – the Peugeot LandTrek, now on sale in the South African market.

The new LandTrek enters the one-ton pick-up segment with the goal of becoming a new benchmark in a market that represents around 300,000 annual sales units in the Middle East Africa region.

Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) account for more than 25% of the South African new-vehicle market, making LandTrek a key launch for Peugeot in a key market, the group said.

“South Africa certainly is an important market for Peugeot. The brand has opened 15 new dealerships in the past 18 months and boasts one of the freshest product ranges on the market today, with 80% of the passenger car range refreshed in the last year alone,” it said. Peugeot launched the new 2008 in February, 3008 facelift in April, new 208 in May, and now the LandTrek.

The new vehicle is available in 4×2 and 4×4 diesel double cab, meeting both professional and family needs. It offers up to three tons of towing capacity and a payload that exceeds one ton.

“The Peugeot brand worked closely with the best international suppliers from Europe, Japan, and the USA, amongst others, to design this vehicle,” the group said.

Cutting-edge on-board technology

“The new Peugeot LandTrek features the latest generation comfort equipment from the brand’s SUVs: advanced connectivity, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10” HD touch screen compatible Apple CarPlay™ /Android Auto™ and 10 GB hard drive.

“This seamless integration with your personal devices allows LandTrek to become an extension of your connected world, storing individual music playlists, pictures and more. In short: LandTrek features every conceivable comfort of typical passenger cars, making LandTrek as suitable for the daily commute as enabling lifestyle adventures and business a reality.”

Safety is ensured by six airbags and an Electronic Stability Programme that includes Hill Descent Control.

The 1.9-litre turbodiesel develops 110kW thanks to a variable turbine geometry with 16 valves. With a torque of 350Nm, the LandTrek adapts to the prevailing terrain through Manual, Sport, or Eco modes.

Up to 235mm of ground clearance equips the vehicle with all the necessary assets of the double cab market, be it two- or four-wheel drive.

The Landtrek is covered by a five years/100 000 km Warranty and Service Plan with maintenance intervals every 10,000km.
