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.
The all-wheel drive Kia Stinger has more traction than its rear-wheel drive counterpart, but that comes at a cost. Drifting, to be specific.
A new iteration of the all-wheel drive system offered in left-hand drive markets, dubbed Dynamic AWD, aims to close that gap.
