New Jetour Traveller Stargazer Wears All The Defender-Style Off-Road Parts It Can Get – CarScoops

The Chinese brand launched the new JMK division for customizing its vehicles
Jetour launched a new version of the Traveller SUV called Stargazer – or Dragon Wing Edition in Chinese. The off-road-focused edition is the first creation of the new JMK (Jetour Makers Kingdom) division and has a limited production of 3,000 units, reserved for the Chinese market.
The standard Jetour Traveller is already a rugged-looking SUV, but the Stargazer takes things even further. Add-ons like the external storage compartment on the one side, the retractable ladder on the other, and the roof rack make the Chinese SUV look even more like the Land Rover Defender, especially from the rear three-quarters view.
Other changes include the new front bumper with an integrated bull bar, a vented hood, an LED bar on the grille, side steps, protective covers for the taillights, and a redesigned storage compartment mounted on the tailgate like a spare wheel holder. Also present is a set of 20-inch wheels shod in 255/55R20 all-terrain tires.

It is not clear if JMK made changes on the suspension of the Traveller but the larger wheels might raise it a bit compared to the regular version. Under the hood lies the stock turbocharged 2.0-liter engine producing 251 hp (187 kW / 254 PS) and 390 Nm (287.7 lb-ft) of torque. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with the help of the “intelligent” XWD electronic system.
In its home market, the Jetour Traveller Stargazer costs ¥219,900 yuan (30,627) and is limited to 3,000 examples. The standard Traveller is priced between ¥140,900-180,900 ($19,625-25,197) depending on the trim. Rivals of the 4782mm-long ((188.3 inches) SUV are similar special editions of the Haval Raptor, the Beijing BJ40, and the Tank 300.
The Stargazer is only a sign of things to come as the JMK division will offer three more special editions of the Traveller (mountaineering, rainforest, and elite) before taking on the rest of the Jetour model range. As reported by Car News China, JMK’s customizations will make the vehicles “more fashionable, wilder, and more interesting”.
