Very reliable and a great diesel 4x4 UTESteed 4x4 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
I bought my STEED 4x4 duel cab ute in 2019 and has approx. 65000Kms on the clock. The GW steed has performed really well over the few years with only a few problems to mention. It has mainly been used for highway or general road use but i have also taken it offroad on mild 4x4 tracks and it has performed well.
The worst problem ive had recently has been, a cheap plastic type radiator type hose, located at the top/rear of the engine, has failed twice in 6mnths. The pipe is poorly designed which is a plastic based pipe and is not the usual radia... Read moretor type hose. A plastic hose on a hot engine doesnt end well. The hose has rubber grommets/seals on either end which have split causing leaks and the plastic has also split due to the heat. After finding that GWM dont have an alterantive or a better designed hose, i have found a multi use, flexable type radiator hose from the (superpcheap) store which i have shortened/cut to fit. I have also fitted a throttle controller and an oil catch can which has greatly improved the performance by reducing alot of the engine lag. The road clearance height was a problem with 4x4 driving, until i raised the tortion bars which gives it a bit of lift.
My Steed 5 ExcapeSteed 4x2 2.4L Petrol (2016-2023)
I got my Steed 5E 2.4 brand new in 2019. The Steed 5E is soft on steering, low noise in cabin, perfect ECS and easy to use avionics. I use it both on and off road and so far no problems with this car. I have not repaired anything apart from normal annual service. I use it for all my farm errands and daily friend to escort me wherever. I have looked after it very well and it has served me well too. Keeping the car clean all the time and more so after off road operation from the farm keeps this thing up to date and good. Servicing it on time in accordance with the supplied maintenance schedule. So far I have no regrets with this car and would well recommend to anyone who needs a new double cab for doing things and family rides.

Was great until I needed it fixedSteed 4x4 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
Bought in 2017 brand new. Unfortunately got into a minor accident 2021, the car that was involved got a small dent yet it smashed the entire front of Ute so goes to show how weak the material of the car is. Not only that, market value significantly dropped after 4yrs and deemed a totalled loss basically because there are literally no parts. When the car was in good condition, the aircon literally finished in 2020 after 3 yrsShow details
More positive than expected.Steed 4x4 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
Purchased new in 2017.
No major issues, No breakdowns.
Mechanically reliable as at 70,000k/5yrs and it's very easy to DIY service/maintainence.
Used mostly for long trips & high speed highway use it is very economical with cruising at 100km/h in 2H/RWD.
Has achieved 900km+ to a tank but the average is 820km to approximate 65L.
The ute has surprisingly good equipment, very comfortable interior and features that stands out from the others double the price.
Highway/Road noise and ride quality are a bit sub-par and it feels like a small truck fro... Read morem the late 90's. Suspension technology (Torsion bar and Leaf springs from pre WWII era) which is rugged and reliable but will break your spine and rattle teeth everytime you hit a pebble but it is capable offroad.

CHEAP DUAL CAB UTE YOUR WARRANTY IS USELESSSteed 4x2 2.4L Petrol (2016-2023)
Well I'm back to complain about my great wall steed, if you want anything covered by the warranty you will be sorry you even asked, at 9,000 kilometres my front carpet was wearing through, now at 20,000 kilometres its worn out with holes right to the floorboards, the car is not miss treated and vacuumed regularly, its a 2020 model so the klms that have been put on it are minimal, contacting the service centre at 9000klms did me know good nor did bringing it to their attention again at 20000klm service, told to contact gwm myself, did that and n... Read moreo go, told its normal wear and tear,wth its a problem from 9000klms and now its my problem, so much for their warranty ay,just on this issue alone would stop me from purchasing anymore gwm vehicles, anything to not fix issues that are obviously from defective material, wear and tear, leaves it open not to fix anything that moves, first gwm vehicle and will be my last,and all because the Chinese owned brand dont want to loose any money
Not the clunker you may fear, quite good.Steed 4x2 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
Purchased the 2.0 diesel 2wd Dual Cab only a few days ago, but that's on par with a professional reviewer no ?
So what's bad about it ? That's the info everyone is looking for on a Great Wall.
First thing you notice is that it is light on acceleration and the steering is very light also. You have no feel of the front wheels, so the first drive is pretty cautious, something you have to get used to, but you do. Not that big a deal in the scope of things. It's pretty gutless off the line, seems low on torque too. But on that I'm instantly glad... Read more I got the diesel as its quite a big car, and I'd prefer that over the petrol. Next odd thing you notice is the indicator makes an odd tone and seems out of time even as it clicks. And in a 2020 car we get no screen ? Really ? But that is about all I'd say that is bad about it. The rest is pretty good. In fact the stereo is actually very good, easy to set up bluetooth too. Now, on the power issue. I've owned and am a big fan of V8 engines and 1000cc motorcycles. So I know about speed and power. But that's not why I'm buying this. Its not going to win you drags at the lights or give you that satisfying feeling of get up and go, but for this price who cares ? Its still ok. The roads are a police state these days so all joy of motoring is over anyway.
Unredeemable CrapSteed 4x4 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
If it's true that you get what you pay for, then hopefully this POS was free.
Had the misfortune of driving one of these at work, albeit with a few kms on the clock.
It's impossible to get comfortable in the driver's seat, wheel is too low and too far.
Noise is horrendous, from everywhere, engine clanks, gearbox whines, and everything rattles.
Steering is lose, and mostly by guesswork, as at TDC there is no feel and the car wanders.
Turbo-Diesel engine is completely torqueless until around 2,500rpm, then suddenly takes off.
Practically impossible to select 3rd gear. For First, you're in the passengers lap, for Fifth, its hard against your leg, but venture anywhere in between and its pot-luck.
4x2 petrol dual cabSteed 4x2 2.4L Petrol (2016-2023)
Very good so far as others have said, the not so good, light steering, turning circle not great, gearbox little bit noisy, but other than that we love it great to drive, getting better performance as its getting more klms on it for $20.000 I don't see why you wouldn't buy one will update as we get more klms on it.Show details
2018/19 Great Wall Steed Dual Cab Test Drive ...... Coooool.Steed 4x2 2.4L Petrol (2016-2023)
OK, before l begin writing my review of the 2019 Great Wall Steed Dual Cab 4 X 2 petrol engine, let me say this firstly .........Yes it's Chinese and yes it comes from China ...... If you can get yourself over that one fact, read on ... If not, it's your loss.
Great Wall has been producing dual cab utes originally based significantly on 2003 2004 2005 Holden/Isuzu Rodeo twin can utes.
Do you need me to tell you that again .... I don't think so.
Gone is that fuel hungry horrible 3.5 V6 engine that even Holden dumped in 2005 for the Commodore eng
Needs more power!Steed 4x4 2.0L Turbo Diesel (2016-2023)
The ute itself is great. And many more features then previously offered, But with the same, underpowered engine. It's fine if you don't want to tow or go for a serious 4x4. But the engine needs a larger size option available. If there was a 2.8 TDi or even better, 3.2TDi, I would definately upgrade to it.Show details
