Five years since entering the local market, GWM continues on its path in providing practical and affordable vehicles, with the latest examples being the Steed 5 2.2-litre Single and Double Cabs.
The facelifted, rear-wheel drive Steed 5 2.2 Single and Double Cabs have been given a newly designed grille that brings these pick-ups in line with the rest of the Steed 5 range and are now also equipped with air-conditioning.
Tony Pinfold, Chairman of GWM, says, “Consumers are now watching their budgets more closely than ever before due to continuous food and petrol price hikes. Farmers, small business owners and entrepreneurs are no exception. We hope to help them work smarter through the Steed 5 2.2 Single and Double Cabs – well-priced pick-ups that get the job done.”
The Steed 5 2.2 Single and Double Cabs are powered by GWM’s 4-cylinder, fuel-injected, 2.2-litre petrol engine. The engine remains unchanged and produces 78 kW at 4 600 r/min and maximum torque of 190 Nm between 2 400 and 2 800 r/min. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
Priced from R124 990 for the single cab and R149 990 for the double cab, the new Steed 5 models will appeal to budget-conscious companies and individuals who are looking to enter the bakkie market at a fraction of the cost of the bigger names. All models in the Steed 5 Series come standard with a 3-year/100 000 km warranty and 2-year/24-hour roadside assistance. The GWM dealership network now consists of 71 outlets throughout the country.
