A few days ago, Great Wall held an official presentation of the new Tank 500 off-road vehicle, which can already be called a direct competitor to the Toyota Land Cruiser 300. Later, the manufacturer began accepting applications for the first 1000 copies of its model. This decision showed that the Chinese novelty will be very popular. The fact is that all of the Tank 500s put up for sale sold out in less than a minute. And now the preliminary prices of the new SUV have become known.
It is expected that Great Wall will offer the Tank 500 for 300-400 thousand yuan (3.4-4.5 million rubles). That is, the new product will be significantly cheaper than the Land Cruiser 300. Moreover, the difference in price between the Chinese and Japanese models will be even greater if we consider that Toyota sold the previous version of the SUV in China for at least 7 million rubles (in terms of the current exchange rate) …
Recall that the Tank 500 is a large off-road vehicle built on a frame chassis. The car stands out for its premium performance and the ability to pass fairly difficult sections of the road. In particular, the ford depth reaches 800 mm, and the entry and exit angles are 29, 6 and 24 degrees, respectively.
Under the hood of the Chinese novelty, a 354-horsepower turbocharged engine with a volume of 3 liters is installed, which develops up to 500 N * m of torque. Along with it are supplied with a 9-speed automatic and four-wheel drive that supports 11 off-road modes and is combined with a mechanically locked differential and an electromagnetic clutch. According to preliminary information, the new Tank 500 will enter the home market before the end of this year.
