The GREAT WALL 'STEED' has landed on British shores. At £14,995 it is the cheapest pick up truck on sale today. But, 'cheap' rarely means 'good'. Let's find out if it's worth buying.

      I take it you've never driven a p100. By far much worse than any other pickup. By the way the beemer looks great in the flesh. I live about a mile away from your place. Any chance of a video on xjs.

      Our rural roads in Australia are so poorly maintained that you almost require a 4x4 with proper tough all terrain tyres just so you don't get wheel damage from metre wide potholes

      Pickups are generally overpriced. Remember my old man buying his brand new Peugeot 504 pickup in 87/88, they were cheaper than a crap used family car at the time. Manufacturers must be raking it in from pickups and vans. Nothing to em, but I don't mind a decent looking pickup.

      We've had Great Wall vehicles here in Australia for some time. You don't see a lot of them - probably about as often as the Indian manufactured Mahindra. My main concern with such vehicles would be how safe they are in a crash. Really enjoying your reviews. Thanks for the videos.

      It sounds like the pick-up equivalent of a Dacia Sandero. My father-in-law is now on his third. Although he is a miser, then is nothing miserly about the vehicles themselves.

      You are spot on! Used one of these type of pick-ups for one day's work - I'm a self employed electrician. Truly awful! Bruised my shins to black 'n'blue climbing in the back to reach tools. Steps don't fit and my FWD van is better on snow with winter tyres. Farmer's tow truck - nothing else.

      Pick ups make no sense over here but I love them in the US. They are so versatile. You can throw a snow plough on the front, they have high ground clearance, most are four wheel drive (all helpful as the majority of Americans live a bit off the street down driveways that get muddy and wet in winter), I've thrown everything from a wardrobe to a V8 in the back. We have panel vans (transits and what not), America has pick up trucks.

      Another good video, thansk for the advice on the Range Rover, despite the lack off heater controls Im going in to order a new one tomorrow. It was interstng to hear your opinion on the Great Wall. I have often wondered what they were like, they were quite popular here in NZ the land of the Toyata Hilux, hovere I dont see as many as I did, I believe the Ford Ranger is the top selling Ute here. We have an Amarok which I find to be an excellent car, it is used exclusively as a second car, great on fuel drives great, and really handy for dirt bikes, surf boards etc.
