hello my friend and welcome to this forum, i also see you facebook profile about great wall vehicles in philippines and wish you all best in the future :thumb:
problem is in chinese laws about fuel consuption,i am sure that you see that many suv anc pick up manifactures in china have the same engines or similiar, gasoline 2.2 with 78 kw, 2.4 with 93 kw, diesel 2.8 with 57 or 70 kw. that's the only reason why this engine have 70 kw or 95 hp, that low don't allow engines with big power and big fuel consuptiongeralilio said:Hi Martin! Thanks for your reply.
Hello again micodelija. I have some questions for you. Is the 2.8L TC engine of the hover and wingle really rated at 95hp and 225Nm of torque? because i think that is a bit low for a CRDI engine with a big displacement. Just to compare, a mitsubishi montero sport being sold here in the Philippines with a 2.5L engine is rated at 134hp and 320Nm. But one of our clients was able to drive both cars and he thinks that the hover is more powerful.
I hope you can answer my question. Thank you!
i think that you shoud have better coomunication with your importer, to see what are their plans, great wall how have in offer the new diesel engines which are quite goodgeralilio said:Hi micodelija thanks for your reply. I could not really get in touch with Great Wall directly because we are just one of the dealers here in the Philippines. There is an exclusive distributor who brings in the cars for us. Hopefully when the Hover gets refreshed, we'll get a better engine than this one, and maybe automatic transmission also.
There are also a lot of other China brands here such as:
Top brands here now in the Philippines that are not China Cars are the following:
Here in the Philippines, Kia is actually more expensive than Hyundai because the two brands are distributed by different companies. But, they are both more expensive than Mitsubishi and Toyota.
By the way micodelija, I also want to ask, are the engine parts of Great Wall compatible with other brands? Like maybe the 1.3L and 1.5L gasoline engine would be compatible to Toyota or the 2.8L diesel will be compatible to Isuzu? Sorry if I have so many questions. I really love this brand and I want to be able to market it here in our country the best way I can.
haha...isn't problem, if i can help you in any way...i am here for you, my suggestion is also that you take some time and surf thru the topics, you will found many intersting photos and information which can be good for you, also please post some photos of your showroom and vehiclesgeralilio said:Hi micodelija,
Again, thanks for your response. I hope you do not get tired of me asking questions.
Great to hear from a fellow Filipino here in Chinacarforums. Anyway, We'll be having a small cocktail party here at the showroom on Saturday, 3pm. If you guys from bigbigcar.com are free, then it'll be great to see you all here. You can look for me, my real name is Germain Alilio.
