The Great Wall brand has always had two key attributes associated with it – that it’s cheap, and that it’s Chinese.

Now there’s a new pick-up from the brand, the Great Wall Steed – it’s still cheap, it’s still Chinese – but we want to know if it’s any good, this time around. So we got our hands on the most expensive Great Wall Steed you can buy, the 4x4 diesel, which is still very much affordable by dual-cab standards, priced at just $29,990 drive-away. That places it cheaper than the cheapest name-brand utes – if you shop around you can get dual-cab diesel versions of the Mitsubishi Triton, Volkswagen Amarok and Nissan Navara, for example, for less than $40,000.

      Work was chuffed when they found a Great Wall Turbo Diesel Ute for $4500, not even a year later and literally nobody wants to drive the POS, the thing has been bogged in sand so many times because the Turbo has to think for 5 seconds before it realizes you're mashing your foot on the accelerator. I feel bad for anyone that would take these offroading. Literally the old flogged crapped out 90's 2WD Holden Rodeos and Ford Courier Utes we have are far more capable at offroading than that hunk of junk. People have good reason to hate this crap.

      It is a mega classic brand in China becuause of its increcibly durable enginnering design compare to its price, I think the same principle aplies to the inernational version, by which I mean :
      For such aan affrotable price, it is really incredible to get such level of durability and engineering excellency!!!
      If you planned on spending only so much on a pickup and you want the BEST OF THE BEST quality in the world, choose Great Wall, it is really the quality king in the lower price range of a pickup, worldwide!

      I have a 2009 Great Wall 240V I bought new. It's been OK with just a few issues. 1, It broke a clutch spring once and it was a slow limp home trying to change gears and 2, it blew a head gasket and it cost almost what it's worth to get the head reconditioned. It struggles to pull a loaded 8x5 trailer up hills. But it has served me well for what I needed it for.
      These new ones look ok and if I wanted more of the same for use I'd consider but I need better towing ability so I'll be looking to a Ford 3.2 Ranger, a Mazda BT50 or a Toyota Hi-Lux SR.

      I don’t think there is xenophobia against asian cars. This is still bad. It’s getting better, but still no good. Japanese cars are today more trustable than German cars, which are not bad but they have a non justifiable price compared to the failures they show and they are chosen by people who are either show boats or speeders. The American are now at the 3rd place. I think Chinese cars will be growing in credibility for the next decades and who knows in 30 more years we’ll be buying them as we buy Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi or Nissan.

It's been a really good ute.. last few years all i've done is put fuel in it and change the oil and filters...yes it's not as good as some more expensive dual cab 4x4's... but if it blows up 2moro who cares!

      I lived in Australia for 18 years and I can tell you that if you buy this ute, you're going to get heckled and verbally abused every time you stop at a red light. And your friends are going to hang shit on you (as they say there) every chance they get.

      When I think of stuff made in China I think of cheap crap, I would rather get a Triton which is the cheapest of the Japanese utes.

      Lol at all the Chinese militants in all the Chinese car videos telling us western scum to fornicate with our mothers. Its gotta hurt when the whole world thinks your cars and all your goods are steaming piles of shit🤷🏻‍♂️

      Now, since china doesn't have access to youtube or western media without a proxy, and vpn, i am gonna assume you communist retards are in the west. So should we notify your local governments of how anti west you are? I mean honestly, you can go back to your communist regime, its waiting with open arms. What are you doing here???
