    I would not be in that line either. First issue is that is a chinese knockoff, second issue it is a knock off of a Ford. No thank you. If I ever won a ford in some kind of sweepstakes/drawing I would just sell it to buy a GM product or more custom crap for my truck.

    I bet the 'Asian' version of the F-150 does not include the 'Man Step'. They are smart enough not to copy a dumb idea.......Well then again, the did copy an F-150. You think it performs like the original?

    Haha...I 2nd that Sur.
    Not to mention, a lot of car manufacturers are starting to copy the look of other car makers just to boost sales. In example when I pull up behind the new Dodge Durango I think it's a BMW X3 or X5 because of the taillights.

    I highly doubt you guys will need to worry about a line for these trucks anywhere in the states. Probably will be sold in most of Asia and maybe parts of the middle east. If you look for that car manufacturer online, you will probably find that a lot of their cars look similar to other makes/models.

    They didn't have any other choice but to copy the F-150...I mean, they can't get their hands on parts that are quality enough for a Chevrolet copy cat.

    Same opinion here! ford's F 150 doesnt appeal to me (Even the Raptor) So why would i buy Chinese Crap Built in a communist country that treats their own poeple like Garbage.

    I am sure Ford knows about it, the American companies make a lot of cars that they don't bring to US. Maybe they think they will get better sales with a new name! We buy Chinese, they don't buy American!

    The only thing they buy are samples to duplicate and it no where bear comes to equality. But then again they hold our loans that the government decided to take from them.

    China does this, they copy cars and sell them in just their country not to others. Like the F-150 they make them look really close. Top Gear UK did show a section of their show about Chinese cars and how they copy cars and doesnt pay royalty to whoever design they are stealing. Example is the BMW X5, and BMW sued China for copying there vehicle and BMW lost!

    Here is the article about it: http://www.bmwblog.com/2008/12/19/bmw-loses-court-battle-to-chinese-x5-clone/

    But idk why they stole the F-150 design but they didnt pay Ford and its definitely not going to be sold over seas, Thank God lol

    tell me what tech china hasnt stolen from the usa. its funny how some people say that china, japan and other countries have better tech than america. yet they fail to accept the fact that 70% of the planets tech is designed here in america and sold to other countries. how much stuff have you gotten that say designed in usa manufactured in china?
