April 25, 2008 - The Great Wall Auto debuted its 2008 new Hover at Beijing auto show. Hover, a China-made world-class vehicle model, has won the championship of SUV unit sales for years.
Boasting all good features of Hover CUV's chassis, structure, performance and safety, the 2008 new Hover is largely improved in the engine, control, safety and comfort through extensive upgrading from the existing model.
The new Hover is powered by the GW2.5TCI diesel engine of German Bosch high-pressure common rail technology with maximum output at 80KW, and maximum torque at 300NM. With On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) added, the emissions meet the Euro Ⅲ standard and the top speed can reach 150km/h.
The new Hover is also equipped with Traction Control System (TCS) to avoid the wheel slip in the emergency braking and can increase the driving stability and safety.
