The Dongfeng Oting (“Ao Ding”) is a re-badged Nissan Paladin, the Chinese version of the first-gen Nissan Xterra. Both the Oting and Paladin are manufactured by Zhengzhou Nissan, a joint venture between Dongfeng and Nissan. The compact SUV carrying the Dongfeng logo was first released in September 2007. An upgraded version went on sale in July 2013, getting a refreshed appearance and engine tune-up.

In Zhongmou, Zhengzhou, the Oting is one of a group of models produced on the Nissan F-Alpha platform. Besides the Paladin, this family also includes the Nissan D22 pickup, Dongfeng Rich pickup, and Dongfeng Rich SUV/van. All of them have a body-on-frame design and emphasis on off-road capacity.

Two layouts are provided, offering rear-wheel drive and part-time four-wheel drive options.

In 2014, only 499 units of the Oting were sold (while its sibling, Nissan Paladin, posted 3,341 sales.).
