The Derways Saladin is a sport utility vehicle (SUV) manufactured by Chinese auto builders (Derways) from 2007 to 2008.

History of Derways Saladin

Chinese carmakers designed the Derways Saladin SUV in the style of the Nissan Paladin vehicle, which has competed in the Paris-Dakar rally races several times. Also, customers might compare this vehicle to the Nissan Xterra, which is popular in the United States. From 2006, Derways assembled it at a partnership in Cherkessk (Karachay-Cherkessia) from vehicle sets. The Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile Co. plant supplies all the components, and Saladin-certified Chinese professionals do the construction to fulfill Nissan specifications. Derways introduced the SUV in 2007, and they discontinued the model in 2007 as well.


Derways sold the Derways Saladin with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) from 105,800 to 298,800 Chinese Yuan ($16,272 to $45,957).


Due to the big glass area and large mirrors, visibility is excellent. Both the front and back rows benefit from the vehicle's interior capacity, which creates a sense of spaciousness. You may transport any medium-sized goods in the baggage compartment's 1260 liter capacity. Derways Saladin comes with standard features, including a height-adjustable steering column, 2 airbags, a CD player, electric windows for all doors and exterior mirrors, alloy wheels, central locking with alarm, air conditioning, fog lights, a boot curtain, side sills, a trunk rooftop power, steering, and electric antenna. The top trims of the Saladin come with a leather interior, parking sensors, immobilizer, and double adjustment for the front seats.


The Derways Saladin 3.3 engine delivers 170 hp (127 kW) at 5,200 rpm and 195 lb-ft (265 Nm) at 3,600 rpm of torque. The Derways Saladin has a top speed of 96 mph (155 kph) and a curb weight of 4,001 lbs (1,815 kg). Derways Saladin was available in two drivetrains, rear-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive, and two available engines: 3.3 V6 and 2.4 inline-4 engines.
