2018 Great Wall Steed single-cab 4x4 now available

2018 Great Wall Steed single cab 4x4 introduced

Single-cab 4x4 Steed enters the Great Wall stable.

A SINGLE-cab 4x4 is now available in Great Wall’s Steed range, and it’s priced from $18,990 (for ABN holders).

The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine used in the dual-cabs – good for 110kW and 310Nm – has been carried over to the single-cab variants, and it’s also mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The tradie-spec single-cab’s aluminium tray measures 2400mm long and 1777mm wide; plus, it has a payload capacity of 1198kg and a towing capacity of 1700kg.

Dual airbags, ABS brakes, ESP stability control, hill-hold control and tyre pressure monitoring are all standard features.

“Since we re-launched the Steed nameplate in 2016, we have received strong demand from dealers and customers for the return of the single-cab version,” Great Wall Motors Australia Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Smith, said. “With a mix of toughness, reliability and value for money, the single-cab has always been a popular member of the Great Wall family. At its peak in 2012, the single-cab version accounted for 55 per cent of all Great Wall utility sales.”

A black mark against the Steed, however, has been its safety, with the dual-cab model scoring a two-star ANCAP safety rating against 2016 ratings criteria.

The Steed comes with a three-year, 100,000 kilometre warranty, three-years’ roadside assist and three years’ service price menu.
