BAW BJ80C Sales Figures


This is the civilian version of the Beijing Auto BJ80 series, whose front and side views somewhat remind of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Even though Daimler owns a share in BAIC Motor, that doesn’t mean they have given their approval to this copycat design. In fact, they’ve tried to get the car banned, but apparently were unsuccessful. The BJ80C is a popular choice in China. It is priced competitively, and it offers a good balance of features and performance.

BAW BJ80C Overview

The BAW BJ80C is a 4×4 off-road vehicle that was launched in China in 2021. It is based on the BAW BJ80, but it has a more civilian-oriented design and a more comfortable interior. The BJ80C is powered by a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower. It is available with either a manual transmission or a CVT.

The BJ80C is available in two trim levels: 2.3T and 2.3T Flagship. The 2.3T trim level is equipped with features such as a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a six-speaker sound system, and a rearview camera. The 2.3T Flagship trim level adds features such as a panoramic sunroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated front seats. Compared to the military version (called BJ80J), the BJ80C has alloy wheels, a chrome grille and other details, and a more luxurious interior.
