New details have become known about the future serial SUV GAC. The novelty is already passing the required road tests, as evidenced by recent spy shots.

The Chinese got acquainted with the GAC GS8 five years ago, so restyling this crossover in the face of tough competition was simply necessary.

Externally, the updated crossover differs from its predecessor with a new radiator grille, sharpened head optics and a simpler design of the taillights. The wheels have become sportier, but the body shape remains the same.

The manufacturer did not regret the piano lacquer about the interior decoration of the car. The center console now flaunts a large screen and a virtual dashboard. The steering wheel is three-spoke, and the gear lever has become more compact and fashionable. In general, the entire internal upgrade was aimed at giving the SUV a more prestigious look, writes the Chinese Cars portal.

Chinese media expect to see the under-hood of the updated GAC GS8 2.8-liter or 2.0-liter engines.

Moreover, the “senior” engine will be seriously modernized. Transmission – 8АКПП from Aisin. All-wheel drive versions will also be. According to rumors, the brand will offer customers a hybrid modification based on THS (Toyota Hybrid System) technology. The debut of new items can be organized already in 2021.
