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.

      +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 :)

      I saw one of these when i was walking past a used car place, all I could notice was that it had a huge amount of rust underneath.

      I have worked most of my life in construction plant sales and forestry, I would be totally lost without a double cab pick up truck, it gives me a balanced combination of decent on road drive, good off road drive, load carrying space, 3500kg towing capacity and room for 4-5 people on a short journey, OK fuel consumption is normally just under 30mpg irrespective of what the manufacturers claim, presently I have a Ford Ranger double cab 2.2L 6-speed Auto Limited spec, had several Nissan Navaras before but this is probably the best pick up truck I've had, wonderful chassis when pushed hard - yes I can drive a 4x4 quite fast and not crash.

      The Great Wall pick up, well its OK for a lifestyle truck but its too flimsy to last in my world.

      ok you've got me thinking. I've seen these 3 utes online for sale. A 1994 Mazda Ute with 10,000km or 2012 Great Wall ute with 100,000km or 2002 Toyota Hilux ute with over 200,000km? All for a similar price. Wanting to use for light ute duties and maybe light towing.

      Take a drive in a 2019 Ram 1500 and you’ll find that it drives and rides like a car, has masses of rear leg room, and shifts beautifully. You can also spec it with a e-torque engine offering 130lb-ft of additional standing start torque.

      Good review of this Great Wall truck; it makes sense for businesses.

      Doesn’t fair too well in crash tests...which is typical of Chinese made cars. Although pickups generally don’t do well. Another reason not to like them.

      Whilst I'm a Scotsman, I live in Australia.


      You would really need to know what it's like to live in a country like this to fully understand where the use of a 'pick up truck' (over here referred to as a 'Ute') is best applied.


      You also need to have a terrain purpose for it too, as is the case here.


      Some parochial English novice with the usual English-genetically-obtained down-minded attitude driving around a wintery English urban or country road isn't going to provide the kind of information potential buyers such as myself need from an actual 'professional' review.


      And if you can't see the use for the vehicle - aka understand your own customers'/viewers' needs, then why bother reviewing it at all?


      That said, Great Wall have yet to prove themselves in their western markets but I am indeed currently considering it on my Ute shortlist.

      High Peak Autos In reply to 13thAMG

      Hi there! All I can do is give my honest opinion and experience with a vehicle based on my use of that vehicle in the place I live. As I said in the video, unless you live in Wyoming or Tanzania, I think pick-up trucks are pointless. You're right though. What I should do is take the cars I do videos with all over the world and see what they're like in every single situation, what they're like on different terrain and how they sell in different markets before opening my narrow-minded mouth. Then again, I'm a parochial English novice, so what do I know. It's strange how the internet is now just a platform for people to insult and disparage. When I need a critique from a know-it-all-Scot, I'll be in touch. Good luck with your search for a pointless 'ute'.

      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.
