Great Wall Motors (GWM) Australia’s new Cannon 4x4 dual-cab pick-up has moved upmarket.
The GWM Ute’s entry-level Cannon variant is now $500 dearer, at $34,490 driveaway, due to the addition of a spray-on tub liner to its list of standard equipment.
Of course, this feature was already included in the mid-range Cannon-L and flagship Cannon-X versions, so they’re unchanged at $37,990 and $40,990 respectively.

For reference, the 4x4 dual-cab pick-up’s range is motivated by a 120kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine, which is mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
The Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi Triton rival also has an on-demand four-wheel drive system with low range (4L) and a rear differential lock.
Braked towing capacity is 3000kg, which puts the GWM Ute 500kg behind the segment standard. And for what it’s worth, unbraked is 750kg.
As reported, Great Wall is working on a new Raptor-rivalling grade for the 4x4 dual-cab pick-up, with it not only set to offer greater off-road capability, but also get more aggressive styling and upgraded technology, so stay tuned.
