Arrow Great Wall Wingle3 and Wingle5

Great Wall Motor Co., Ltd has introduced "5+1" new models at the Auto Guangzhou exhibition.

Leading the pack is the new self-developed Wingle pickup truck. Its name comes from the combination of Wind and Eagle. It features an electronically-controlled common-rail diesel engine, developed in conjunction with Bosch.

The new turbo-diesel powertrain, dubbed the Intec complies with Euro III emission standards and has a maximum torque of 225 Nm between 1600-2600 rpm range.

The Intec engine will also be available in the Hover CUV.

Other new models included the Hover Pi, a stretched version of the Hover CUV with luxury equipment. The first Hover Pi was built for Fidel Castro.

Default Wingle graphic and Pi

The Wingle is apparently GWM's big splash at Guangzhou. This might be a good model to pilot the US market entry providing it combines good fuel economy with decent heavy duty performance. Maybe GWM will follow the precedent set by Toyota and Datsun in the 70's when they offered (4x2) pickups that were more affordable than many sedans.

Here are photos of the Hover Pi model presented to Fidel.

GAH that thing looks horrid. Almost looks to me that they attempted to fuse the front end from the Audi S4 onto a pickup body.

What a lazy effort by the Great Wall Motor. It doesn't hurt to use some ingenuity, you know.

The side, rear and interior design shows that this is a Isuzu D-Max based pickup.

Just compare the interior, side and rear design with a D-Max or a Chevrolet Colorado and you'll see what i'm saying...
