These are the first clear photos of the production-ready FAW Besturn T77 SUV that the company is planning to launch in China soon. The T77 SUV is based on the FAW T-Concept that was displayed at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2018.
The 7-seater T77 SUV, will be the biggest and the most expensive SUV positioned under FAW’s Besturn sub brand umbrella. Compared to the T-Concept, the overall design of the production version has not changed much. More importantly, the characteristic radiator grille with interesting curved profile remain intact.
These current set of photos show the front as well as the rear end of the vehicle. Interestingly, there is a ‘Bestune’ wordmark present above the license plate instead of ‘Besturn’. FAW has also recently changed the wordmark to ‘Senia’ for their ‘Senya’ range of vehicles, while the ‘Junpai’ has been renamed to ‘Jumpal’ as well.

The T77 will be powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine producing 143hp, which is similar to what FAW has packed with the recently launched flagship Senia R9 SUV. The transmission options are 5-speed manual & 7-speed DCT, the same as in the Senia R9.
In terms of dimensions, the new T77 measures 4525/1845/1615 (mm) and has a wheelbase of 2700mm, which makes the T77 some 20mm longer than the Senia R9 but slightly shorter in width and height. Both R9 and T77 have an exact wheelbase of 2700mm though.
The T77 SUV will be available in multiple configurations, with options including panoramic sunroof, dual exterior colors (black roof) for premium trims, 17/18/19 inch wheels with low profile tires, LED DRLs, front & rear fog lamps, front & rear cameras and Bosch ABS system etc.
The FAW Besturn T77 flagship SUV will be launched in China towards the fourth quarter of this year. Stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for more information on the T77 SUV.
