Great Wall hasn't given its new ute a name yet, but it's already preparing a pair of pumped-up engines for power-hungry buyers.

Both displace 2.0-litres, both are turbocharged. A six-speed manual and eight-speed ZF automatic will be available.

Great Wall ute pricing puts Ssangyong in the firing line

Great Wall is talking a big game with its new ute, boldly claiming it'll sit with the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger as a top-three selling mid-sized ute globally, but its pricing Down Under will be a closer match for the Ssangyong Musso. The mid-range 'Passenger' version of the as-yet unnamed ute will be priced at around $35,000 with an automatic transmission, diesel, and four-wheel drive according to Haval Australia managing director, Koma Li.
