Sadly, this is on China's home turf, who knows if Ford has any standing in China with regards to copyrights/patents or any other intellectual property.

Yeah...Its pretty underpowered...In all fairness most trucks sold in North America are overpowered compared to trucks sold in Europe and other countries.

But even 240nm of torque only amounts to about 175 ft/lbs which is low...Compact trucks have made more torque than that here in North American for the past 15 years now.

The Chinese are getting out of hand, just copying everything we are doing, stealing it actually! They don't play by fair rules and fair trade, and we are losing jobs because of it. I hope that President Romney fixes this!

If you look at this truck closely, it looks like a buffet of a few trucks in one.

The grill, front fascia, head and tail lamps loosely resemble the F-150.

The cab is small and looks more like a Ram and the tailgate looks like it came from a Titan.

To me, it doesn't look much bigger than the world Ranger and is clearly less capable.

RyPow is starting off with a positive reputation.


The thing is probably a death trap too, just like every other home-grown Chinese POS.

That's hysterical, they even copied the Blue Oval! I bet those guys copied the other name when they cheated on their homework.

That is clearly wrong. It does look like an F150. Something needs to be done about this...

Wow. Raptor grill and front bumper design, don't know what the cab is stolen from. F150 tail lights and a Nissan tail gate.

What was that song by Johnny Cash about working at the automobile factory?

In other news FTE the Ford Truck Enthusiasts along with several other Ford Truck groups have formally declared war on China for its recent hijacking of the F150 design. Details at 10.
