Huanghai products (buses, trucks, SUVs and pickups) are practically unknown outside of China. While trucks and buses are exported to Africa, the Middle East and South America, SUVs and pickups are sold exclusively in China for a very simple reason. Huanghai, a Chinese manufacturer is famous for its love of cloning models of famous brands: Huanghai Aurora is a copy of the Korean SangYong Rexton 1 generation, Huanghai Challenger is very similar to the Japanese Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 120 series, Huanghai landscape F1 one in one of the first Kia Sorento Huanghai landscape V3- it is a close replica of the first generation Lexus RX and Toyota Harrier, the Huanghai H1 pickup truck, similar to many other pickup trucks, the classic Huanghai Plutus pickup truck The Chevrolet Silverado turned 2004 into the Huanghai Plutus pickup luxury truck,
With the novelty of the Huanghai H3 pickup, the situation is different, so at least I think that in the bowels of the Chinese company.

The front end is especially impressive. In the presence of a solid stock of bumper with large foglights, majestic filter grille lines, HHN3A lettering (the coded name of the pickup truck), compact and neat headlights with lens optics and spot LED daytime running lights. The composition ends with a massive hood with a characteristic relief.
