GWM Steed 5E

The Steed legacy of toughness continues with the addition of the striking Steed 5E. With sophisticated and upmarket new looks, a dramatically refined interior with all the modern conveniences and two trim levels to choose from, the Steed 5E is your all-in-one travel companion. The 5E is aimed at customers looking for a leisure-oriented double-cab bakkie that offers exceptional value and quality at a very attractive price.


With its finely chiselled exterior features, the GWM Steed 5E boasts a powerful presence. The front bumper features integrated fog lamps and a wider, hungry looking lower airdam that is neatly accentuated by twin chrome-finished strakes on either side. The narrow grille aperture, flanked by darkened headlamps, further boosts the sophisticated appearance.


With a refined and luxurious Steed 5E, you’ll always be eager to explore new destinations with friends and family. Safety is therefore a high priority. GWM has equipped the Steed 5E with a comprehensive safety package that includes dual front airbags and ABS with EBD. Furthermore, all Steed 5E models feature fog lamps to boost visibility during poor weather conditions and adjustable safety belts. Rear door child locks are also standard. Xscape models further add tyre pressure monitoring and an automatically dimming rear-view mirror.


The Steed 5E is offered with two engine options, catering for a wide variety of needs.

For the petrolheads out there, GWM’s proven 2,4-litre (4G69) four-cylinder engine is on offer. It delivers 93 kW of power and 200 Nm torque. A slick five-speed manual transmission is employed to send power to the rear wheels. This 2,4-litre engine consumes 10,7 L/100 km on the combined cycle.


The Steed 5E’s cabin boasts numerous comfort- and refinement-boosting enhancements, as well as beautifully detailed design features. Note the sophisticated piano-black trim on the facia, centre console and door panels. Leather padding extends to the doors and all the various hidey-holes have rubber matting to stop your valuables from rattling about.
