• Pick-up now features enhanced six-year / 200,000 km. warranty
  • Steed’s position consolidated as Ireland’s best value 4×4 double-cab pick up
  • Extended warranty offered on all new Steeds
  • Applies to first, and all subsequent owners, during warranty period

Already Ireland’s most affordable 4×4 double-cab pick up, the Great Wall Steed is currently the only vehicle of its kind to be offered with a six year / 200,000 km. warranty, following the introduction of a new offer from the Chinese brand.

The extended six-year warranty comprises the 3 year/100,000 km. manufacturer warranty plus a further 3 year/100,000 km. powertrain extended warranty provided by Great WallIreland. The six year warranty is available on all Steeds purchased between now and 31 December 2013.

As well as the new six-year / 100,000 km. mechanical warranty, all Great Wall Steeds benefit from a six-year anti-perforation warranty, three-year paint warranty and three-year roadside assistance.

“The six-year warranty reaffirms Great Wall’s commitment to offer fantastic value and guaranteed quality, with confidence, to Irish customers,” said Neville Matthews, Managing Director at Great WallIreland.  “The Steed represents outstanding value for money, with a low purchase price, generous equipment levels and excellent fuel economy for its class, while this extended warranty will further enhance the appeal of our vehicles.”

Great Wall’s entry-level Steed S is the most affordable 4×4 double-cab pick up, with a purchase price of just €21,995 (excl. VAT, delivery and related charges.). Features standard to all Steeds include 16-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, remote central locking, a Thatcham-approved Category 1 alarm, electric front and rear windows, an Alpine CD/radio with USB/MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, air-conditioning, heated fronted seats and a full leather interior.

All Steeds feature Great Wall’s 2.0-litre 16-valve turbocharged diesel powerplant that delivers class-leading fuel economy (30.1 mpg urban; 37.7mpg extra urban; 34.0 mpg combined), as well as a low-range gearbox and an ‘on-demand’ four-wheel-drive system that can be selected by the driver when the terrain becomes challenging.

In January 2013, the Steed’s towing capacity was up-rated to a beefy 2,500kg braked, as well as an unbraked towing capacity of 750kg. A 1,050kg maximum payload makes the Steed ideal for a wide range of commercial applications, with impressive performance both on- and off-road.
