Already the UK’s most affordable 4×4 double-cab pick up, the Great Wall Steed is currently the only vehicle of its kind to be offered with a six year / 125,000-mile warranty, following the introduction of a new offer* from the Chinese brand.
The extended six-year warranty comprises the 3 year/60,000 mile manufacturer warranty plus a further 3 year/125,000 mile powertrain extended warranty provided by Great Motor Distributors (UK) Limited. The six year warranty is available on all Steeds purchased between now and June 30, 2013.
As well as the new six-year / 125,000-mile mechanical warranty, all Great Wall Steeds benefit from a six-year anti-perforation warranty, three-year paint warranty and three-year roadside assistance.
“The six-year warranty reaffirms Great Wall’s commitment to offer fantastic value and guaranteed quality to businesses and consumers in the UK,” said Haydn Davies, marketing director at Great Wall UK. “The Steed has always represented outstanding value for money, with a low purchase price, generous equipment levels and excellent fuel economy for its class, and this extended warranty will further enhance the appeal of our vehicles.”
Great Wall’s entry-level Steed S is the most affordable 4×4 double-cab pick up, with a purchase price of just £13,998 (CVOTR). Great Wall’s first offering to the UK market, the Steed S, has since been joined in March by two special edition models, the Steed Chrome and Steed Tracker, each offering outstanding value for money at £14,998 and generous equipment levels.
Features fitted as standard to all Steeds include 16-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, remote central locking, a Thatcham-approved Category 1 alarm, electric front and rear windows, an Alpine CD/radio with USB/MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, air-conditioning, heated fronted seats and a full leather interior.
All Steeds feature Great Wall’s 2.0-litre 16-valve turbocharged diesel powerplant that delivers class-leading fuel economy (30.1 mpg urban; 37.7mpg extra urban; 34.0 mpg combined), as well as a low-range gearbox and an ‘on-demand’ four-wheel-drive system that can be selected by the driver when the terrain becomes challenging.
In January, the Steed’s towing capacity was uprated by 500kg to and impressive 2,500kg braked, as well as an unbraked towing capacity of 750kg. A 1,050kg maximum payload makes the Steed ideal for a range of commercial applications, with impressive performance both on- and off-road.
