The Peugeot Landtrek
The Landtrek is Peugeot’s contender in the local pickup truck segment. The Landtrek is a mid-sized pickup built with the essential elements of the segment i.e. reliability, ease of maintenance, versatility, off-road capabilities, as well as towing and loading performance.
It features an attractive styling designed and driving capabilities that make it seem at home on city roads as well as on challenging terrains. The Landtrek has a ground clearance of 235 mm and a wading depth of up to 600 mm, making it suitable for handling rough terrain, potholes and flash floods in the city. Powering it is a 1.9L turbodiesel engine with variable geometry turbine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain produces 150 hp @ 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque @ 1,800 – 2,800 rpm.
The Landtrek is also equipped with technology to handle rough roads such as a mechanical rear differential lock which provides extra traction when one wheel slips. Additionally, the transfer case allows for easy shifting between 2-High, 4-High and 4-Low modes with just a turn of the rotary knob.
Creature comfort includes a 10” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, silver-trimmed piano-style toggle switches, and dual zone air conditioning controls. Furthermore, the rear seats’ backrest can be tilted 23 degrees to provide greater comfort on long journeys. The modular nature of the rear bench seats also adds versatility to the cabin. The rear seat cushions can be tipped up in a 60:40 split to allow flexible loading configurations. Similarly, the rear backrest can also be folded down 60:40 and can support loads of up to 100 kg.
