It might still be relatively early in the year, but we're just about ready to award the "Ute Name of The Year" gong to the Terralord.
Yes, it sounds like a Marvel villain, but it's actually a new mid-size dual-cab from Chinese brand Zhongxing, with a design flavour clearly borrowed from the big trucks of the USA.
Available with a choice of petrol or diesel engine, the pick for the power is the 2.4-litre turbo-petrol, which produces some 155kW and 320Nm. Alternatively, you can opt for an Isuzu-sourced 2.5-litre diesel, good for 100kW and 320Nm, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. And if you're worried about reliability, the brand offers a five-year, 150,000km warranty.
There is 4WD available, of course, as well as Sport, Snow and Normal drive modes, and, one some levels, an Eaton diff lock. A huge centre screen, leather trim, heated seats, keyless entry, stop start and an auto handbrake also join the features list.
The price? That would be a very palatable RMB99,800, or a smidge over $20k in Australian dollars. The only question, then, is would you?
