JMC Vigus Pro Pick-Up Now In Malaysia Via Tan Chong
There’s a new pick-up truck in Malaysia called the JMC Vigus Pro.
When it comes to pick-up trucks, the status quo has long been held by traditional Japanese brands. However, the world is changing and there are new players in the game now. Especially in this segment, where many modern trucks have gone in the direction of being extremely feature-rich and pricey. To offer an alternative to Malaysian buyers, Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd have started to offer the JMC Vigus Pro 4X4 pick-up truck in Malaysia.
About the JMC Vigus Pro 4X4 in Malaysia
The JMC Vigus Pro 4X4 is a double cab pick-up truck, available in one specification in Malaysia as far as we can tell. The truck is powered by a Ford-sourced 2.0L diesel with a variable geometry turbo. The engine puts out 141PS at 3,600 rpm and 340Nm of torque at 2,600 rpm. The engine sends power to all four wheels via an 8-speed ZF automatic with a BorgWarner 4WD system with 2H, 4H and 4L modes. An Eaton-built Rear Differential Lock by Eaton is also featured. The only feature that has been shown so far is a rear view camera.
More specifications are to be expected later in October 2021. For now, interested customers can find the JMC Vigus Pro 4X4 in the company’s flagship in Klang.
