Key Specs, Features Of 2024 Jaecoo 7 Revealed

After completing a high-temperature torture test (where engineers witnessed a miracle), Omoda’s Jaecoo off-roading brand has now revealed key specs of its first offering: the Jaecoo 7 ahead of its global debut this month. The Philippine launch is slated for late 2023.

The name Jaecoo stems from a combination of, “Jaeger” (Hunter in German) and “Cool.”

The Jaecoo 7 breaks from typical Chinese vehicle norm and comes with a turbocharged direct-injected 1.6-liter engine. This 1.6 TGDI powerplant makes 197 horsepower and 297 Nm. Power is routed through a 7-speed wet-type dual clutch automatic in either front- or all-wheel drive guises. Either way, it does the century sprint in about 8 seconds.

No word whether the Philippine spec will carry the same powertrain, but Jaecoo engineers have confirmed that a plug-in hybrid version will also be made available.

Targeting urbanites who also wish to go on light off-road adventures, the Jaecoo 7 is built on a platform made of 80 percent high-strength steel. It also carries impressive credentials: its approach angle is 21 degrees (better than the CR-V), while its departure angle is 29 degrees (better than the Forester). Minimum ground clearance? 200 millimeters. Water wading depth? 600 millimeters.

In terms of tech, the infotainment system is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip. This makes interacting with the 14.8-inch center screen quick and lag-free. It also serves as the car’s central nervous system, enabling the Jaecoo 7 to have standard 10.25-inch all-digital instrumentation, a large heads-up display, a 540-degree panoramic camera, a suite of advanced driver aids, and a proprietary ARDIS all-roading system. The ARDIS all-wheel drive system unlocks seven different modes including urban, dessert, mountain, water-crossing, mud, and more.

The Jaecoo 7 will not be made available in China. Instead, it’s destined as a global model that will launch first in Eastern Europe followed by Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Chile.
