GWM Steed 5 DC

You were born to take life by the horns. Your restless spirit drives you to the next no-holds-barred adventure. You need to get out there. Play dirty and work hard. Take the family on amazing adventures. Discover new destinations. A competitively priced Double Cab complete with all the trimmings, the Steed 5 means business. Diesel or petrol, the Steed 5 Double Cab is all for roughing it without breaking the bank.


Handsome, isn’t it? The Steed 5 looks good. End of story. From the sporty grille to its masculine and toned contours, the Steed 5 is a robust-looking machine. But do not be fooled: this attractive leisure vehicle is also a hard worker, and can handle a one-tonne load with ease.


Double Cabs are loved in South Africa because they match our active lifestyles. This means that, along the line, they will also do duty as family vehicles. Consequently, safety is a high priority. GWM has equipped the Steed 5 Double Cab 2,2-litre petrol and 2,0-litre VGT turbodiesel models with a comprehensive safety package that includes dual front airbags and ABS with EBD (except the 2.2 Double Cab). Furthermore, all Steed 5 Double Cabs feature fog lamps to boost visibility during poor weather conditions and adjustable safety belts. Rear door child locks are also standard.


The Steed 5 Double Cab is offered with a range of two engines, catering for a wide variety of needs.

The entry level model is powered by GWM’s proven 2,2-litre petrol engine that develops 78 kW and 190 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels. The combined-cycle fuel consumption figure for this model is an economical 10,2 L/100 km.


Whether the Steed 5 Double Cab is used for business or pleasure, the comprehensive standard specification ensures that occupant comfort is never in doubt. It starts with the spaciousness of the cabin, which offers excellent head-, shoulder- and legroom all-round as well as a number of storage spaces for odds and ends. A neat padded centre armrest doubles as a large storage box between the seats.

All models feature a heated rear window, power steering, leather upholstery, air-conditioning, electric windows and a radio/CD audio system (with USB support).
