Default Bejing 2500 and other Jeeps

Beijing Jeep Corporation, Ltd. had been producing the XJ classic Cherokee since 1984, and in 2004 they bought the old tooling for the WJ Grand Cherokee when the WK was introduced for the USA as a 2005 model. After some tooling up time, the WJ was introduced in 2006 for the Chinese market as the Jeep 4000 and 4700 Grand Cherokee (for the 4.0 I-6 and 4.7 V8, inc. HO, models respectively).

It was their flagship model and nearly identical to the 2004 Grand Cherokee Limited in looks and equipment, including the solid axle suspension, choice of 4wd systems, body color cladding, alloy wheels, Chrysler sound systems, and Chrysler automatic climate controls. This is unlike the XJ Cherokee that was significantly modified by Beijing Jeep for the Chinese market.

Beijing Jeep 2500 is basicaly Jeep Cherokee (XJ) which was produced from 1984—2001 in the USA (in Toledo, Ohio) and is still being produced in China.



Beijing Jeep Corporation bought in 2004 the old tooling for the second generation of Jeep Grand Cherokee (produced in USA from 1999 to 2004) when the third generation was introduced in the States as a 2005 model.

On January 16th, BAW officialy presented facelifted Qishi (Knight S12) with completely new interior.

The SUV is powered by 2.0 and 2.2 litre engines and is available in two trim levels (Comfort and Luxury).



When China opened its doors to the West in the late 1970s, Western businesses jumped at the chance to sell their products to the most populous nation in the world. Boardrooms everywhere buzzed with excitement—a Coke for every citizen, a television for every family, a personal computer for every office.

At no other time have the institutions of Western capitalism tried to do business with a communist state to the extent that they did in China under Deng Xiaoping. Yet, over the decade leading up to the bloody events in and around Tiananmen Square, that experiment produced growing disappointment on both sides, and a vision of capturing the world’s largest market faded.



Picked as one of Fortune Magazine's "75 Smartest Books We Know," this updated version of Beijing Jeep, traces the history of the stormy romance between American business and Chinese communism through the experiences of American Motors and its operation in China, Beijing Jeep, a closely watched joint venture often visited by American politicians and Chinese leaders.



Jim Mann explains how some of the world’s savviest executives completely misjudged the business climate and recounts how the Chinese, who acquired valuable new technology at virtually no expense to themselves, ultimately outcapitalized the capitalists.

And, in a new epilogue, Mann revisits and updates the events which constituted the main issues of the first edition.Elegantly written, brilliantly reported, Beijing Jeep is a cautionary tale about the West’s age-old quest to do business in the Middle Kingdom.

The silver one looks tidy enough. I didn't like the interiors though. It will be interesting to see if ebay get flooded with Chinese Jeep parts like most every thing else on there. Only thing will be are they interchangable with the US (Mexico) ones.

Here we have a heavily tuned Beijing-Jeep Cherokee, the 2002 model. The owner got himself a big horn on the bonnet, to be heard in Beijing’s traffic jams. To be seen het got six big foglights. To scare he got a freaky mask up front. Its not a traditional Chinese mask, loox native Americanish.



Ladder to get up the roof, nice bar at the bumper, guess it can seat four. The Beijing-Jeep Cherokee is still a hugely popular machine and after market parts are readily available for next to nothing.



See exthaust pipe, going up the roof. Usually those are fakes and so proved this one, the real exhaust was at the back. Still, a great piece of work, approved!

I think it is the blend of colours I don't like. They should have it all grey.

This is the good old Jeep Cherokee, still in production in China today. Name is different: Beijing Auto Works Knight S12. The Knight is a left-over from the Beijing-Jeep joint venture (later Beijing-Chrysler, later Beijing-Daimler-Chrysler). The JV made the Cherokee in China from 1984 until 2009. When Chrysler-in-crisis pulled out in 2009 Beijing Auto Works, a subsidiary of BAIC, continued production of the Cherokee all by itself.

The Knight, or Qishi in Chinese, is powered by a 2.0 4-cylinder with 122hp or a 2.2 with 141hp. Both engines mated to a five-speed manual. Driveline either 4×2 or 4×4. The engines are old Nissan units, the American 2.5 and 4.0 are no longer used for the Knight.

Price for all this pretty starts at 78.800 yuan and ends at 93.800 yuan, that is between 11.940 and 14.200 US dollar. Not much money for a classic!

They made this one for awhile alongside the 2500; the 2700 got 200cc more. Buyers didn’t see the point and the 2700 was soon killed, only the 2500 stayed until the end, the V6 by that time long gone… But the great Cherokee fortunately still stays with us.
