Base Model[]

A big bodied, heavy truck that is of American origin around the 1950’s. This pick-up is a real beast that is able to carry a large load. With a price tag of only $15700, you are not paying for performance but rather for the payload size.

An ancient 4.8L (4778cc) CV8 engine is responsible for dragging the 2202.2kg of the Jingu around. With only 140Hp and 415Nm of torque, with this truck, you’ll be going nowhere, slowly. The 4 speed gearbox with a first gear ratio of 2.80 takes forever to change with shifting time being 1.1 seconds. The strong 4.30 ratioed differential powers only the rear wheels. Only able to reach a top speed of 113km/h, you will be dead before you cross the finish line.

Due to its age, the Jingu has 300mm drum brakes on all wheels with 1560 stopping power in the front and 450 brake force to the rear. The sway bars are similar with a 22mm in front and 20mm at the back. The street tire profile is 245/40R20 and steel rim size is 245/20.

Deluxe Edition[]

Not many changes have happened to this model, but slight additions in a few aspects may or may not be enough to say that this model is an improvement over the base model. A few changes to the powertrain and differential is nothing that will excite people but statistics may prove differently.

The same 4.8L (4778cc) CV8 engine as the base model is in this Deluxe Edition. However, with the addition of a low profile supercharger, the power output has risen slightly to 168Hp with 498Nm of torque. A change in 28Hp has left the Deluxe Edition with a top speed of 117km/h. The differential is now at a ratio of 4.30 and still rear wheel driven.

The suspension and sway bars have not changed but the original brakes have been replaced by 290mm sport disk brakes and front braking force is 1850 and rear brake force is 760. The steel rims have been swapped out for better looking alloy rims, which helps with cooling. These rims and tires are the same size at 245x20 for the rims and 245x40R20 for the tire size.

With more power and an equal amount of weight that does not perform as well as one would expect, this Deluxe is not worth the money spent on it.
