      @High Peak Autos I have to agree with David. I watched this video as I was considering getting a ute - I used to have a family that relied on a passenger car, and now they are older and no longer reliant, so I wanted a ute to move things to and from my house. I got the Steed in AU. Feels like Im driving a Ute. Handles just like a Ute. Because it's a Ute. And I saved like 20 grand compared to other brands that had comparable extras. Im in no hurry to complain - and plus, I have a shiny new car :)

      Pick ups are work horses indeed and useful in certain conditions or work environments however a double cab pick up makes no sense at all. Small carrying capacity, bad ride and low fuel economy. Double cabs are for the wannabe cowboys from Rochdale.

      I personally drove the single cab steed 5 on the harsh South African
      terrain , 80kms new to 149000kms
      I loved every minute of that truck.
      I hate negative reviews because I personally loved the Gwm

      What a twat not seeing the point of a pickup. It's the absolute workhorse of the farming community better than a landcover which looks like something out of world war II. Every single farmer in this county, and probably the country drives a pickup, are they all stupid? No. Pickups have got grunt, can tow tons in any kind of a trailer and get through a muddy field. What are you sonny, some millennial little towny that can't see anybody else's point of view? They're utility vehicles, not cars.

      Dave Rice My mistake. They do have one purpose then. For the rest of us, they’re noisy, slow, impractical, clumsy and cumbersome. Oh also, having an opinion that differs from others doesn’t make you a twat.

      Mate when reviewing a car I don't wanna see your face but the car itself. That goes for interior and road if you want to buy why show your face constantly. Might come off harsh but I'm not hating just not a good thing to do when reviewing cars.

      Only a couple of downsides with this
      1. Only pulls 2 tonne
      2. Belt change every 45k as opposed to most other trucks which are over 100k

      I work in the on shore drilling game and a 3.5t towing capacity is an absolute necessity.

      But for their first U.K. Truck it's not a bad shot at it.

      I live in North America and your absolutely right, pick up trucks are stupid. I should know, I owned 3. Finally purchased a Mercedes Metris (Vito). Pick up trucks are used for status for the working class. It has nothing to do with practicality. The phenomenon of the pickup is exactly that, a phenomenon. Vans are quite a bit more to purchase than a truck if you compare apples to apples in North America. But the practicality of a van far outweighs the extra cost in tool storage, organization of materials etc.

      Apparently you haven't driven any American trucks. My F350 as more rear legroom than a Lincoln Continental and it rides quite nicely as well. Heated leather seats. Automatic climate control. automatic transmission.

      @South Hill Farm Well where I come from we don't buy trucks to just drive. Altho there are some that do. But we use our trucks for work that include going off road plowing snow and hauling all variety of things. Pulling trailers off road. All things a sprinter van isn't capable of. I'd like to see you drive your sprinter van up a logging road to get a load of fire wood or plow 3 feet of snow up the slightest incline. Your sprinter also isn't gonna drive around any of the coal mines or rock quarries if its even slightly damp out because you'll be stuck. Those vans have there purpose and do them well. So do trucks.

      Roger, I just sold my F350 FX4 - 4x4. Glad its gone. Finally, after 3 trucks I finally gave up on the stupid American concept that has gotten out of control and I bought a Mercedes Metris. I should have bought a Sprinter, but I am much happier with a van that I can easily get to my tools, haul 1 tonne of materials, if required and pull almost 2 tonnes with ease. This generation will look back at the era of trucks and say W.T.F.?

      Very Popular here in South Africa ...Diesel way better than the 2.4 petrol which is a old Mitsubishi based engine with bad fuel economy.. The interior is identical to a 2007 Isuzu kb bakkie (s.a for pick up lol) good value for money pick up though .

      You are right in that no one knows what pick ups are useful for. If you are a townie. If you live in the country then you don’t understand how people live without a dirty, bouncy, grotty stinking pickup truck that looks like it could give you an infection just by sitting in it.

      Interesting review and also interesting to see how many miles they run before the engines knackered, Isuzu and Toyota run forever when you said oil change every 10,000 miles I thought that's probably due to rapid engine wear due to a Chinese engine, personally I wouldn't touch one but like you say they're cheap.
