We were able to find out that pre-sales of the new GAC GS8 will start on October 1st. The car, which already competes with the Land Cruiser Prado, is based on the GPMA architecture and the car itself has been completely redesigned. The general design language of the model is mostly angular cutouts and straight lines, which greatly enhances the visual impact of the GAC GS8. The enlarged radiator grille occupies a large area of the front of the car, and the headlights have a longitudinal design, which makes them look very impressive.
The side lines of the body are still relatively straight, the visual effect is harsh, and the structure of the suspended roof remains unchanged. As for the dimensions, the length, width and height of the new car are 4980/1950/1780 mm, and the wheelbase is 2920 mm. The rear of the GAC GS8 is designed in a familiar style and continues the classic design of the previous model. The vertical lights are located in the shape of the letter "H", which is immediately recognizable when the ignition is turned on. At the same time, the rear bumper is adorned with a small diffuser and is equipped with a dual exhaust scheme, which also adds a sense of dynamics.
As for the interior, here the GAC GS8 will not surprise, because everything inside is done in a simple style. The new three-spoke steering wheel features the popular small center airbag design that looks a little more fashionable than before. The multimedia display has an impressive floating design. It integrates entertainment, navigation and other functions. The lower center console has a simple design. The new car also features a head-up display HUD, which is expected to bring detailed driving information such as navigation directly onto the windshield. The GAC GS8 uses a 6-seat 2 + 2 + 2 layout, making it easy for rear passengers to board and exit.
Let's talk about power. The fuel version will be powered by a 2.0T + 8AT engine combination with a maximum output of 251 hp. and a torque of 400 N * m. The hybrid version is equipped with the fourth generation THS system 2.0TM + Toyota. Will such a car satisfy all the needs of the Chinese with its sophisticated technology and excellent power? It is not yet known, especially since we do not even know the approximate price of the GAC GS8.
