China Delivers MengShi 4×4 Light Utility Vehicle to Trinidad

China Delivers 20 MengShi 4×4 army light utility vehicle to Trinidad.

The MengShi EQ2050 is based on an imported AM General Hummer H1 chassis. The DFM EQ2050 is powered by a Dongfeng license-built Cummins EQB150-20 110 kW/2,700R turbo-charged diesel, but it can also be fitted with the U.S.-made V8 diesel originally designed for Humvee.

Both vehicles have a 5-speed gear box and a 2-speed transfer box.


They are both four-wheel drive with independent suspensions and central inflating system. The EQ2050 also has re-designed lights and radiator to make it look different from the original Humvee. DFM has cooperated with AM General Motors on getting American-made parts for the first EQ2050s made.

Dongfeng EQ2050s in service with the People’s Liberation Army. Also in use by People’s Armed Police Fire Fighting brigades and by Public Security Police forces.
