Let’s talk bluntly, about Sao Che, fellow car lovers, this is what Weibo is talking about. 38° represents the local temperature in Zhengzhou, the hinterland of the Central Plains, and 38° also represents the “upward life” of the Beijing • off-road family. The 2018 Beijing • Off-Road Family Experience Camp officially kicked off, and the starting point was at the Beijing Auto Off-Road Culture Theme Park, Hongtugou, Henan.
The off-road vehicles brought by this experience camp include the newly defined high-end model Beijing (BJ) 80 Everest version, and of course the highly concerned Beijing (BJ) 40 plus.
On May 27 this year, when Beijing (BJ) 40 plus was officially launched, I introduced this car in detail to the majority of riders. Many riders replied to me that the new car does look more beautiful, many configurations have also been upgraded, and the refinement has also been improved. But for this hard-core off-road vehicle, what car fans are most concerned about is how much the real off-road ability has been improved? This time Master Ding personally drove Beijing (BJ) 40 plus into the off-road track to give a detailed interpretation to the majority of riders.
First of all, the difficulty of the routes in Hongtugou Off-Road Park is at a medium level. Although it is not a particularly professional and difficult route, it can basically include all common off-road escape environments.
The four-wheel drive controller of Beijing (BJ) 40 plus is now changed to electronic control, which is definitely more convenient to operate. For this kind of moderately difficult off-road route, high-speed four-wheel drive can fully handle it. If you encounter a more advanced and difficult off-road section, you must adjust to a low-speed four-wheel drive gear with low torque amplification.
The wheelbase of Beijing (BJ) 40 plus has increased compared with the old model, and it is now 1610mm. A wider wheelbase is helpful to the stability of the vehicle body. For example, on sloped roads, the wider the vehicle body, the better the stability, and the overall posture of the vehicle body will be more stable.
Continuous shell craters or multi-cross axle road sections, in addition to the four-wheel drive capability, the suspension structure is also very important. If the suspension spring is too soft, the left and right swings of the vehicle body will be large. The suspension is too stiff, and the body will bounce extra, which is not good for getting out of trouble.
The front suspension of Beijing (BJ) 40 plus is now changed to coil springs, and the suspension travel has also been increased. When quickly passing through the continuous shell crater section, the body swing is well controlled, including in the case of sharp turns on soft ground, and the lateral support is relatively strong. Whether it is the driver or the passengers, there will be no particularly obvious shaking.
The approach angle of the body is 37°, the departure angle is 31°, the passing angle is 23°, and the ground clearance is 220mm. This set of data is of a very high level among off-road vehicles. For various consecutive humps, there will be no obstacles.
As for the wading ability, because the depth of the puddle is not very deep and only does not exceed 500mm, it is very easy to pass through.
The newly upgraded steep slope descent function performed very well and impressed me very much. The most obvious feature is the fast response speed, which basically belongs to reaching the top of the slope. When the body is slightly tilted up, the steep slope descent function will start to intervene. At this time, you only need to hold the steering wheel tightly, control the direction and it will be ok.
There will be no loss of control force when going down a steep slope for a long time and a long distance. Perhaps for real off-road players, steep slope descents are not used. But for amateurs and beginners, this function is still very powerful, and it is very easy to use.
Let’s talk about the off-road capability of Beijing (BJ) 40 plus. For details such as appearance, interior, configuration, etc., you can refer to the content published before in “Wei Zai Shuo”. Finally, let me say a few more words about the activities of the 38° Upward Life Beijing Cross Country Experience Camp. This event is mainly aimed at off-road people, off-road enthusiasts, off-road vehicle owners, etc. Now it is open to the public, regardless of whether you are the owner of a Beijing (BJ) brand car, you can sign up, and you can go to the official website to consult and sign up. “Only off-road travel without borders” Come and play with your family.
