JMC Vigus Pro Pickup Truck Launched In Malaysia, Priced At RM98,888
The JMC Vigus Pro is a new pick-up truck from China available in Malaysia.
Angka-Tan Motor Sdn Bhd has launched the JMC Vigus Pro in Malaysia this morning – a new pick-up truck built by Jiangling Motors Co., Ltd. The Vigus Pro is locally assembled at Tan Chong facilities in Serendah and gets favourable pricing, with only one specification level available at RM98,888 in Peninsular Malaysia and RM100,888 in East Malaysia.
For that price, the JMC Vigus Pro 4X4 double cab pick-up truck represents good value for money. With the current shortage of supply and vehicles, Angka-Tan expects they can sell 350 units by the end of December 2021. As it stands, there are already 30 units with Mayflower car rental.
The single specification of the JMC Vigus Pro in Malaysia comes with the following equipment:
- halogen projector headlights
- LED daytime running lights
- LED turn signal lights on wing mirrors
- auto-folding side mirrors
- 8″ infotainment unit with touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity
- 4 speakers
- reverse camera
- leather-wrapped steering wheel with media and cruise control buttons
- paddle shifters
- reverse camera
- 2 airbags
- ISOFIX mounts
What’s more impressive than the list of equipment is what’s under the skin. The JMC Vigus Pro is powered by a Ford-sourced 2.0L turbo diesel with 141PS at 3,600 rpm and 340Nm of torque at 2,600 rpm. This engine is from the same engine family as the Ford Ranger 2.2L turbo diesel called the Puma and NOT the Panther 2.0L engines found on the XLT Plus, Wildtrak and Ranger Raptor models.
The engine is paired to an 8-speed ZF-sourced automatic that sends power to all four wheels. This 4×4 system features an Eaton-built rear differential lock.
Despite these branded mechanical parts, the JMC Vigus Pro itself is an in-house design from a company with many years of experience building pick-up trucks in China.
Where can you see the JMC Vigus Pro?
Right now, the flagship showroom is in Klang, but there’s also another official JMC showroom in Subang Jaya.
13 other dealerships hold the JMC Vigus Pro nationwide with plans for further expansion. The aftersales support is being provided by Tan Chong’s established and reputable network. Customers can even benefit from JMC Care through Tan Chong’s in-house car insurance provider.
