Great Wall To Sell Pickup Truck In UK

Great Wall is all set to become the first Chinese car brand that launches into the UK market by offering an affordable pickup truck.

The Steed as it’s called this pickup truck, can be seen in Hall 3A Stand 70 at the CV Show next month – the first time a Chinese manufacturer has exhibited at the annual commercial vehicle showcase. GW has put a base price of £13,998, which is cheap, but then you look at the car and you’d know it’s rubbish! The looks, the brand, the specs, nothing in this car is up to the standards for the European market, especially Britain.

Further details about the Steed and Great Wall’s business plans will be revealed next month.


GW press release:

Great Wall Motor Company – market leaders for pick-ups and SUVs in China – will this month become the first Chinese automobile manufacturer to commence volume sales in the UK, following the launch of the Steed pick-up at the Commercial Vehicle Show (Birmingham NEC; 24 to 26 April).

The Steed is a robust and highly practical pick-up that will offer unrivalled value for money.  Prices will start at just £13,998 (CVOTR) for the generously equipped Steed S model – the lowest for any double-cab pick up in the UK.  With a gutsy 2.0-litre diesel engine, six-speed gearbox and selectable-on-the-move two/four-wheel drive, the Steed also delivers class-leading urban fuel economy and the lowest insurance ratings of any vehicle in the pick-up segment. .

The Steed goes on sale through a brand-new, nationwide network of 40 Great Wall dealers.  Hand-picked to reflect the brand’s values and philosophy, the dealers have promised standards of customer service that will break new ground in the pick-up market.
