    Cons

    Higher price

    Since the Rich6 is the only purely electric pickup truck available in the local market, its price tag of P2.76 million is higher than other pickup trucks of the same size. However, since it does not use fuel and oil, its maintenance costs are cheaper than that of internal combustion engine-powered pickup trucks.

    Lack of brand recognition

    One potential drawback of the Dongfeng Rich6 450 is its lack of brand recognition compared to more established pickup truck manufacturers.

    While Dongfeng has a strong presence in other parts of the world, it is still building its reputation in the Philippine market. However, for those willing to venture beyond the mainstream brands, the Rich6 offers a unique and promising alternative.

    Verdict

    The Dongfeng Rich6 450 is a versatile pickup truck that meets both personal and business needs. However, it is priced higher than gas- and diesel-powered pickup trucks, and Dongfeng is still building its name in the local automotive market. It may not be the most practical choice for now, but sometimes, the underdog surprises us all.
