GWM Steed 6

Making a big impression is a given with the new GWM Steed 6. This new flagship leisure double-cab is designed and packaged to appeal to those customers who want only the best – the most advanced safety features, the most user-friendly luxuries, power and economy in equal measure and design that forces you to look… and look again!


GWM’s new Steed 6 is a bakkie like no other… With its bold, louvred grille and accentuated wheelarches, it stands its ground by displaying a forceful presence that’s not for the faint-hearted. Adding to the visual appeal are neatly integrated LED strips, high-intensity projector-style headlamps and a finely sculpted lower airdam that incorporates a SUV-like skid plate. And that’s just the front-end…

The Steed 6 is one of the biggest bakkies on the local market, but its generous dimensions are not only there for show. Courtesy of an especially long wheelbase, the Steed 6 offers stretch-out rear legroom.


The Steed 6 offers the most comprehensive safety package that has ever been offered on a GWM product in South Africa.

The flagship Xscape derivatives boast sophisticated Bosch ESC (electronic stability control), tyre pressure monitoring and no fewer than six airbags (dual front, side & curtain). All Steed 6’s are equipped with Isofix rear child seat anchors. Front and rear fog lamps are fitted to all models, as are eye-catching LED driving lamps.


The Steed 6 is powered by GWM’s 2,0-litre VGT engine that has received widespread acclaim. This direct-injection, variable geometry turbo engine delivers 105 kW and a meaty 305 Nm of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is fitted. This engine uses 8,8 L/100 km in the combined fuel cycle.

All SX-badged derivatives feature a rear differential lock.


Step inside the Steed 6 and discover a cabin that would do a top-notch luxury SUV proud. The facia design is European, with two deep-set analogue instrumentation gauges flanking a comprehensive trip computer. Unique to this segment is the leather-covering of the instrumentation binnacle, a detail touch that reinforces the Steed 6’s upmarket intentions. Other examples of this premium focus include a leather-wrapped, four-spoke multi-function steering wheel and piano-black trim on the facia.
