2022 GWM Ute price and features: Great Wall Cannon fires another cost increase in battle with Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max and Mitsubishi Triton

The GWM Ute has now had its pricing increased four times since its launch in late 2020.

Great Wall Motors (GWM) Australia has increased the pricing of the GWM Ute dual-cab pick-up once more.

In this instance, the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, Isuzu D-Max and Mitsubishi Triton rival has become $1000 dearer, with its entry-level Cannon variant moving up to $34,990 and $36,990 (driveaway) in 4x2 and 4x4 form, respectively.

Meanwhile, the GWM Ute’s 4x4-only mid-range Cannon-L and flagship Cannon-X versions now cost $40,490 and $43,490, respectively.

CarsGuide has contacted GWM Australia to see if any corresponding changes been made to the GWM Ute’s standard specification, but it does appear to be unchanged.

For reference, the GWM Ute 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 and an on-demand four-wheel drive system with low range and a rear differential lock.

Standard equipment in the Cannon includes 18-inch alloy wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and ComfortTek artificial leather upholstery.

Advanced driver-assist systems extend to autonomous emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and a reversing camera.

The Cannon-L adds a sports bar, a tub liner, heated front seats (including driver power adjustment), climate control and surround-view cameras.

Meanwhile, the Cannon-X also gets a 7.0-inch multifunction display, wireless smartphone charging, passenger power adjustment and leather upholstery.
