Great Wall Steed Tracker

CHINESE brand Great Wall has introduced two special edition versions of its 4x4 double-cab pick-up the Steed.

Aimed at both trade and recreational users, the Steed Chrome and Tracker models cost £14,998 and build on the standard kit included on entry grade S variants - offering savings of at least £800 over the accessories bought individually.

With a recently uprated towing capacity of 2,500kg braked, and a 1,050kg maximum payload, the Steed also features a raft of exterior and cabin styling upgrades.

The Chrome model adds chrome side bars, sports bar, fog-lamp surrounds and rear lamp finishers, stainless-steel door entry guards, an over-rail bedliner, tinted windows, metallic paint and carpet floor mats.

And the rugged Steed Tracker adds the likes of special fit General Grabber all-terrain tyres, an over-rail bedliner, towbar with audible monitor, front and rear mud flaps, rubber mats and metallic paint.

Both special editions also come with 16-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, remote central locking, alarm, electric front and rear windows, an Alpine CD/radio with USB/MP3 and Bluetooth, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, air-con, heated fronted seats and leather interior.

All Steeds are powered by Great Wall's 2.0-litre 16-valve turbocharged diesel powerplant that delivers fuel economy of a Combined 34.0mpg, as well as a low-range gearbox and ‘shift on the fly' four-wheel-drive system that can be selected by the driver when the conditions become challenging.
