Haval: Next-generation SUV range not due until 2021

Haval is weighing its future SUV plans in Australia, as it prepares for a new wave of right-hand drive product arriving from China in 2021. The current H2, H6 and H9 line-up looks likely to be bolstered by some combination of the F7, coupe-style F7X, and H6 model ranges currently offered in China. Exactly which remains to be seen, as the company works out an approach that’ll help it cut through in Australia’s overcrowded SUV market.

2019 Great Wall pickup to share Haval H9 platform

Great Wall hasn't exactly hit its straps in Australia since it re-launching with factory distribution. The Steed ute range scored poorly in crash tests, and hasn't racked up sales to match its Chinese rival, the LDV T60 – a ute currently with more demand than supply. However, the next-generation ute premiering in 2019/20 as an intended Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger rival will be far, far more convincing based on discussions we've been having with company staffers in Beijing.
