Great Wall gets the X-factor

Riley Riley

Great Wall has added a new range topper to its Cannon ute lineup.

The Cannon-XSR dual cab ute adds a number of key features to boost off-road design and functionality.

They include a new part-time four-wheel drive system with selectable high and low range, plus front and rear locking differentials for extreme off-road conditions.

Crawl Mode and Turn Assist by Braking also make their debut and are unique to the XSR.

A passive front stabiliser has been added to further enhance handling while an underbody chassis guard and unique fender guards offer the best possible protection.

There’s also new rugged black 18-inch alloys fitted with 265/65 R18 All-Terrain rubber.

Red brake calipers add another unique design cue.

But the powertrain remains the same as the rest of the GWM Ute range, with a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel mated to a ZF eight-speed auto.

Additional exterior upgrades befitting the XSR’s range-topping status can also be found in the new front grille treatment, a sports bar that extends further along the side of the rear tub and the addition of a snorkel.

Front and rear bumpers are made from steel to add even more toughness.

A sunroof is now also available and making its Ute debut on the XSR so that drivers and passengers are able to add more enjoyment to their outdoor adventures.

The GWM Ute Cannon-XSR is priced from $51,490 driveaway.
