This highly anticipated release has stirred up quite a buzz among automotive enthusiasts and potential buyers alike. In this article, we’ll delve into the features, pricing, and performance of the new JAC T9, giving you all the details you need to make an informed decision.

Unveiling the JAC T9

The JAC T9 made its debut at the Shanghai Automotive Show just six months ago, showcasing the result of over four years of dedicated development and extensive global testing.

Karl-Heinz Göbel, the CEO of JAC Motors South Africa, expressed his excitement, stating, “We are thrilled to introduce the exciting new T9 as the range-topper of our T-Series bakkies.”

Versatile Line-up

While the T9 takes the lead, JAC’s lineup includes the versatile T8 and economical T6 models, each focusing on specific target markets within the double-cab segment.

Impressive Features

The JAC T9 doesn’t disappoint when it comes to features. As standard, it offers automatic xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, tail lamps, fog lights, black wheel arches, and striking two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels.

But that’s just the beginning.

Safety First

Safety is a priority with six airbags, traction control, vehicle dynamics control, electronic stability control, hill assist, ABS with a brake override system, electronic brake-force distribution, and tyre-pressure monitoring.

Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera further enhance safety.

Luxurious Upgrades

Opt for the T9 Lux model, and you’ll enjoy additional features like leather seats, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control, an electronic handbrake, an electronically adjustable driver’s seat, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster, front and rear USB ports, a wireless phone charger, and a 10.4-inch infotainment screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Superior Super Lux

For the pinnacle of luxury and convenience, consider the Super Lux version of the T9. It adds front parking sensors, welcome lights, auto-folding side mirrors, a 360-degree camera, a sliding sunroof, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, heated front seats, an electronic front passenger seat, privacy glass, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
