Great Wall takes on the West

Chinese automotive giant Great Wall is relaunching in New Zealand with an updated one-tonne ute, and a European-influenced Haval H6 medium-sized SUV. The company is taking direct control of the distribution of its vehicles here and in Australia, and is using both competitive markets to help refine its models.

Great Wall Steed Review

There’s no real controversy about the ute itself, which is what it is: a budget pickup that’s a bit old-tech, with the price to match. It’s back with a new name and new face, but the basic premise is the same. The Great Wall Steed, as it’s now called, has new frontal styling with a monster chrome grille, a new rear and redesigned interior. The extra bits make it 305mm longer, including 155mm in the tray.

Steed Review – Weekly Times

REMEMBER when we laughed up our sleeves at Kia and Hyundai a couple of decades ago? They’re now well established in the Australian market and Great Wall is hoping for a similar story with its utes and Haval SUVs. It’s not an easy battle for the brand that has taken a few knocks here with reports of poor customer experiences in reliability and after-sales service.

Steed – Motoring Review

Steed Review – Motoring Report

This ute knows its place. It’s a worker, a tool of the trade, priced to please accountants but equipped to keep workers happy. It’s got it’s work cut out, if it’s to make a mark against the likes of Navara, HiLux, D-Max et al, in such a tough sector.

Steed Review – Which Car

After a short break to sort out a few problems, Great Wall is back in Australia and keen to reinvent itself. It’s doing so via a heavily facelifted version of the V240 twin-cab ute that was on sale previously. This time, though, it’s called the Steed, and the way it’s priced (higher) and packaged (much better), Great Wall appears to want to shake off the cheap Chinese legacy.

2016 Steed Review

There’s no doubting that the new Steed is an evolution from the previous model Great Wall ute, but much more up-to-date. The Great Wall Steed will continue to attract buyers, in the first instance, with a value-for-money story. The base petrol 4×2 dual cab ute starts at $26,990. There are also two diesel variants, one in 4×2 and the other 4×4.
