For more than 12 years, this compact pickup truck has been considering as a super-cheap alternative to more famous models in the class but the new 2019 Great Wall Steed is about to become more upscale, with better design solutions, more equipment, and better driving characteristics.
The new generation is also about to get a completely new styling, which will significantly improve visual appeal. As you may presume, the new model will once again come closely related to the mid-size SUV called H9. This model has been redesigned recently and comes with a bunch of new design solutions, including a completely new styling.
The new 2019 Great Wall Steed is about to follow all these changes and to become a much more competitive pickup truck. Expect to see it pretty soon, definitely by the end of the year.
2019 Great Wall Steed Redesign
The redesign of this compact pickup is about to bring a lot of improvement. So far, this model was characterized by a pretty attractive price. Still, it hasn’t managed to become more popular because of poor overall quality. Performances were weak, refinement even worse. Not to mention a styling from the previous century. This time, the company promises significant improvement. Judging on the new H9 3-row SUV, this should definitely be more than promising words. First of all, there is a new platform to come. It will make the 2019 Great Wall Steed more capable in all aspects. Not only that the new model will be able to tow more pounds, but you can expect a much better driving experience as well.
The new chassis will be strengthened, which will surely improve off-road characteristics and overall working capabilities. Also, expect to see a new All-Terrain Control System, which allows you to choose different driving modes, depending on the surface.
2019 Great Wall Steed Styling and Interior Design
The outgoing model isn’t the most attractive truck you can find. Moreover, it looks pretty outdated compared to the competition. Things will change with this redesign. We are about to see a completely new look, which will be pretty much the same as on the new H9 SUV, at least at the front end. There is a completely new design language, which utilizes some pretty modern styling elements. So, there is no doubt that the new 2019 Great Wall Steed will be an option even for those who care about visual appeal, despite the fact that trucks are primarily working machines.
The cabin of the new generation should be pretty much the same as in the SUV sibling. That would mean significant improvements in terms of style and materials quality. A new dashboard will look pretty stylish and we also expect to see a lot of tech features, including an 8-inch infotainment system.
2019 Great Wall Steed Engine
This is the aspect of the truck that we can’t say for sure which will be the options. A 2.0-liter gasoline unit from H9 will probably be available. It is a four-cylinder engine that features a max output of 240 horsepower. This seems pretty attractive if we consider probable good fuel economy.
Considering that this is a classic pickup truck, a diesel version is also certain. The current model comes with a 2.8-liter four-cylinder common-rail diesel unit that is good for about 95 horses, which doesn’t sound so attractive. So, some improvements in terms of power would be more than welcome. When it comes to the transmission, expect to see a new 8-speed automatic gearbox.
2019 Great Wall Steed Release Date and Price
Expect to see the new 2019 Great Wall Steed pretty soon, definitely by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, a single-cab model should go around 15.000 dollars. On the other side, double cab versions will be available at 17.000 dollars, though the price could vary depending on the market.
