South African journalists shared photos that were taken at the presentation of the flagship T9 truck. The automaker calls the SUV T9 SUV, but insiders believe that the new product will be called JS9 – by analogy with JAC crossovers. It is expected that the all-terrain vehicle will inherit both the frame platform, the chassis with a continuous rear axle, and the power units from the pickup truck.

New frame SUV Haval H9 presented: soon in Russia

JAC T9 SUV is a variation on the T9 pickup truck, which entered the Russian market this week. The recipe is proven: a different body is created around the frame platform, and the front part is unified. However, in the case of the JAC SUV, there is no question of a complete copy: the design of the radiator grille is different.

The design of the stern is simple: vertical lights, a swing door with a spare wheel, a bumper with powerful lugs. In terms of dimensions, the T9 SUV should be close to the new Haval H9, because the length of the original pickup is 5.3 meters, and for an SUV the rear overhang will be slightly reduced. There are no surprises expected in terms of technology: under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbodiesel (170 horsepower, 410 Nm) coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

There are no photos of the interior, but the SUV will probably copy the pickup truck in the front, two rows of seats are expected in the back, and the total number of seats will reach seven. The world premiere of the JAC SUV may take place this year, because sales in South Africa are scheduled for the first half of 2025. It is possible that a frame all-terrain vehicle will also appear in Russia, because the local JAC range is expanding.
