Chinese brand WEY, which belongs to the Great Wall concern, has officially announced the start of sales of its new Tank 300 pickup truck, which will cost in the range of 17.58-21.38 thousand yuan.

As representatives of the brand said during the presentation, the new product is built on the basis of a “smart professional off-road platform”. The newest car, in addition to the brutal appearance, which refers us to the first Jeep Wrangler or Suzuki Jimny, is equipped with four-wheel drive, three differential locks, various off-road modes and low gear, as well as an ATS control system.

At the front, a giant radiator grill catches the eye. Of course, it’s not as big as the latest BMW models, but it’s still quite large.

At the rear of the Wey Tank 300 there are square lights with rounded edges and a massive bumper.

The interior of the new car also uses straight lines in combination with rounded edges to make the new car more textured. Round ventilation deflectors and a round drive control knob are also striking. The Tank 300 also features a 12.3-inch multimedia screen that seamlessly merges into the electronic instrument panel.

It is worth noting that the door panels and center console of the new car also feature an open design with rivets, further enhancing the off-road styling. In terms of configuration, the new car is equipped with Harman’s proprietary Infinity audio system, adaptive cruise control ACC, LKA lane keeping, AEB automatic emergency braking and other options, including Level II autopilot.
