2021 GWM Ute upgraded months after going on sale, more models coming

Great Wall Motors has endeavoured to iron out some of the bumps in its new-generation Ute just months after going on sale in Australia. In response to feedback from early test drives by customers and media, GWM says it has smoothed out the twitchy throttle response and reduced turbo lag with a new software calibration.

2021 GWM Baja Snake: Shelby distances itself from China's off-road ute

The 2021 GWM Baja Snake ute was developed with no input from Shelby, despite initial reports to the contrary. Unveiled at the 2021 Shanghai motor show last week, GWM's hardcore Baja Snake was purported to have been developed in collaboration with legendary American muscle car tuner Shelby, with input from the US outfit likely centring around the dual-cab's mechanical upgrades.

2021 GWM X Cannon: Hybrid full-size pick-up unveiled to rival Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado

The 2021 GWM X Cannon is China’s answer to full-size American pick-ups – including the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado – but it has the option of hybrid power. Unveiled at the 2021 Shanghai motor show, the X Cannon slots above the existing Ute (which, confusingly, offers a Cannon-X variant locally) in GWM’s pick-up range, with a bold dual-cab design first previewed in teaser images earlier this month.

2021 Great Wall Motors (GWM) new cars

Great Wall Motors (GWM) had a quiet 2020, with its segment-cheapest Steed tallying up just shy of 1700 sales, and not receiving any significant updates. This might all change however, with the arrival of the all-new GWM Ute Cannon. It's already on sale in 2020, but will have an opportunity to shake up the segment in 2021.
