Peugeot says the pick-up truck will not be offered in Europe. The surprise announcement comes at a time when Daimler has given up on its pick-up truck, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, because of poor sales.
The Landtrek was designed to meet pick-up fundamentals such as a 3.5 tonne towing capacity, versatility, different body shapes (chassis cab, single cab or double cab), real off-road and overtaking capabilities with unbeatable robustness and ease of repair.
It will have two powertrain options including a 1.9-litre diesel unit with a variable geometry 16-valve turbocharger, mated to a 6-speed Getrag manual gearbox and producing 150hp and 350Nm of torque.
This engine has a combined fuel consumption of 7.8 litres per 100km.
There's also a 2.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit mated to a 6-speed Getrag manual gearbox or a 6-speed Punch automatic gearbox with sequential, Sport or Eco modes - which produces 210hp and 320Nm of torque.

Daimler kills off X-class just three years after launch
It will be offered in 4x2 rear-wheel drive, and 4x4 variants.
The 4x4 version offers:
angle of attack: 29° or 30° (depending on the version),
leakage angle: 27° or 26° (depending on the version),
central angle: 25°,
ground clearance: min. 214mm (16'' wheels) or up to 235mm (17''/18'' wheels).
The dimensions are: length of 5.33m for the double cab version and 5.39m for the single cab versions, all with a width of 1.92m.
Also, the modularity of the rear bench seat is unique in the one tonne pick-up segment, with the possibility of folding the backrest 60/40 or 100%.
When folded down, the backrests can support a load of up to 100kg.
In addition, two isofix attachments ensure the safety and stowage of child seats.
On-board kit can include advanced connectivity (USB / Bluetooth sockets), automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10-inch HD touch screen compatible Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and 10 GB hard drive, and a 360° camera system.
Safety is ensured by 6 airbags and an ESP with the functions:
Hill Descent Control, a system that keeps the vehicle at a very low speed and allows you to concentrate solely on steering
ASR (enhanced traction) for 4x2 and 4x4 versions,
Trailer Swing Control, to avoid cold sweats when towing a trailer: ESP acts directly as soon as a weave occurs.
Drivers can also rely on Lane Departure Warning, an audible and visual lane departure warning (depending on the versions).
