While we always enjoy a good guffaw at the expense of the Great Wall Coolbear and Dongfeng's fake Hummer, this latest automotive imposter to come out of The People's Republic is no laughing matter. Seriously, a fake Chinese Ford F-150? The Jianghuai Auto Corporation might as well be wiping their feet on the American flag. More pics below the jump, and watch for this shameless cheap 108-hp F-Series knockoff to be unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in April. CarNewsChina via Autoblog.

Are we sure this is fake? Are we sure Ford didn't give them permission to build these? Seems like something Ford would do to me.

looks like they took a gmc canyon and molded the f150's lights into it...the lines are different tho, no way its a direct copy if I can see differences from here.

This kinda stuff happens all the time. Like the Toyota Cavalier in Japan. Companies sell the rights to their designs to foriegn auto makers in hopes that they can expand their profits. Still, 108 hp? That's just sad...

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. "Wiping their feet on the American flag"? How does that even work? So what they like an American truck and made their own version of it? Does it affect you no?

Jeep sold it's tooling for the Cherokee to a Chinese company, and they've been making XJs ever since. I do hear that the sheet metal is of poorer quality. Some guys on the forums order the clips for the front ends and do conversions to make them look like this. http://image2.sina.com.cn/qc/photo/newjeep250024/U515P33T148D90529F2100DT20050520104355.jpg

The Chinese are the kings of cheap knock-offs.

It's THEFT. It ignores not only intellectual property rights, but patents. They must be too stupid to design their own so they copy from others. This isn't a 5th grade math test... man up 'n design your own shit for a change.

Well, the Chinese are best known for their ability to make cheap copies. I'm sure this thing will probably fall apart as soon as easily as most of the rest of the crap they make.
