The JAC T9 won’t be a bargain basement challenger when it lands in Australian showrooms.

    The new Chinese ute will take on top-end versions of the GWM Ute Cannon and entry-level variants of the new Mitsubishi Triton, with a starting price of $42,662 before on-roads for T9 Oasis.

    The range-topping T9 Haven will set you back $45,630 before on-roads.

    Along with a body that’s very similarly sized to a Ford Ranger, the T9 wades into the crowded ute market with a 3500kg braked towing capacity and a 1000kg payload.
