The car, which will be able to see the visitors of the Shanghai Motor Show, the most adapted for the passage of the most severe off-road. The dynamic characteristics of the new product are still kept secret by the manufacturer.

At the end of 2018, it became known that the Great Wall company was changing the vector of development, concentrating on the production of pickups. Exclusively. In the next five years, the Chinese brand is going to release five new models at once, one of which will be electric. A few days before the motor show opened in Shanghai, the automaker decided to partially declassify its debut model – the pickup truck of the new R series. It is known that the car will receive a new platform, a multi-link rear suspension and an eight-speed ZF automatic.

Recall the previous pickups from Great Wall could not boast of automatic boxes. Now, the manufacturer with the help of a new transmission is going to increase the number of potential buyers.

Already in the basic configurations, the new pickup is planning to equip with a differential lock, a winch and a snorkel – all that is needed to conquer the most difficult roads. Information about the engine news yet. The car’s interior boasts white leather trim, which adds to its elitism. Of course, the manufacturer has prepared more practical finishing options. In the arsenal of the new pickup – LED optics, climate and cruise control, heated seats, modern multimedia with a touchscreen and support for voice control, parking sensors and much more.
