Powered by the same Mitsubishi-sourced 2.4-litre four cylinder petrol engine that is used by Great Wall, the Grand Tiger will be imported and distributed by Chinese Automotive Distributors, based in Perth.
A diesel option is offered in China although it is not clear whether it will be available in Australia. CAD is not ready to discuss pricing, but the Grand Tiger is expected to be close to the Great Wall product.
Other models including dual cabs and cab-chassis models in two and four-wheel-drive will follow, including diesel versions using Toyota-derived engines. The company says Prodrive, which part owns Ford Performance Vehicles, has helped make some alterations to the aid the ride and handling of the Grand Tiger.
