Making a big impression is a given with the new GWM Steed 6. This new flagship leisure double-cab is designed and packaged to appeal to those customers who want only the best – the most advanced safety features, the most user-friendly luxuries, power and economy in equal measure and design that forces you to look… and look again!
GWM’s new Steed 6 is a bakkie like no other… With its bold, louvred grille and accentuated wheelarches, it stands its ground by displaying a forceful presence that’s not for the faint-hearted. Adding to the visual appeal are neatly integrated LED strips, high-intensity projector-style headlamps and a finely sculpted lower airdam that incorporates a SUV-like skid plate. And that’s just the front-end…
The Steed 6 is one of the biggest bakkies on the local market, but its generous dimensions are not only there for show. Courtesy of an especially long wheelbase, the Steed 6 offers stretch-out rear legroom.
All Steed 6 models boast comprehensive colour coding, 16-inch alloy wheels and front and rear fog lamps. Flagship Xscape variants further add factory fit side steps, roof rails and a rear roll bar.
Safety and Security
The Steed 6 offers the most comprehensive safety package that has ever been offered on a GWM product in South Africa.
The flagship Xscape derivatives boast sophisticated Bosch ESC (electronic stability control), tyre pressure monitoring and no fewer than six airbags (dual front, side & curtain). All Steed 6’s are equipped with Isofix rear child seat anchors. Front and rear fog lamps are fitted to all models, as are eye-catching LED driving lamps.
To make sure your pride and joy doesn’t find a new owner without your consent, central locking and an immobiliser are standard fitment.
Power and Economy
The Steed 6 is powered by GWM’s 2,0-litre VGT engine that has received widespread acclaim. This direct-injection, variable geometry turbo engine delivers 105 kW and a meaty 305 Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is fitted. This engine uses 8,8 L/100 km in the combined fuel cycle.
All SX-badged derivatives feature a rear differential lock.
Comfort and Entertainment
Step inside the Steed 6 and discover a cabin that would do a top-notch luxury SUV proud. The facia design is European, with two deep-set analogue instrumentation gauges flanking a comprehensive trip computer. Unique to this segment is the synthetic leather-covering of the instrumentation binnacle, a detail touch that reinforces the Steed 6’s upmarket intentions. Other examples of this premium focus include a synthetic leather-wrapped, four-spoke multi-function steering wheel and piano-black trim on the facia.
Two trim levels are offered, with the SX derivatives boasting such items as climate control, radio/CD with Bluetooth and height-adjustable driver’s seat. Flagship Xscape variants offer a full-house package that includes synthetic leather upholstery, electric driver seat adjustment, cruise control and auto lights/wipers.
