With its finely chiselled new exterior features, the GWM Steed 5E boasts a powerful presence. The new front bumper features integrated fog lamps and a wider, hungrierlooking lower airdam that is neatly accentuated by twin chromefinished strakes on either side. The narrower grille aperture, flanked by darkened headlamps, further boosts the sophisticated appearance.
Take your pick from not only two excellent engines, but also two specification levels, SX and fullhouse Xscape. SX models already feature climate control, radio/CD player, electric windows/mirrors, stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, ABS with EBD and dual front airbags, among other items. For adventurers out there, however, the Xscape is packed with features such as a diff-lock, side steps, factory fit roll bar, leather upholstery, tyre pressure monitoring and a touchscreen info-tainment system.
Whether you opt for the 2,4-litre petrol, or the 2,0-litre VGT turbodiesel, exceptional power, economy and refinement are on offer. The 2,4-litre petrol engine is Euro-IV compliant and delivers 93 kW and 200 Nm of torque. It is mated with a five-speed manual transmission. GWM's 2,0-litre VGT engine has received widespread acclaim, and has been further refined for the Steed 5E. Also boasting Euro-IV compliancy, this direct-injection, variable geometry turbo engine delivers 105kW and a meaty 305 Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is fitted. All 4x4 models feature a low-range transfer case.
