GreatWall presented a Tank 400 Brutal SUV


Chinese carmaker GreatWall has presented a prototype of a very brutal frame off-road vehicle Tank 400. The novelty will occupy a niche between the inexpensive "300" and the luxurious "500", that is, the Tank 400 can be considered as analogue of the LandCruiserPrado. According to unofficial data, the wheelbase of the car is 2850 mm, so we are talking about a mid-size SUV with a length of about 4.8 m.

The new Tank 400 is distinguished by deliberately chopped shapes, BF Goodrich mud tires, small overhangs, impressive ground clearance and a high bonnet. ... At the same time, outwardly, the model does not look like either the "300th", or the "500th", or the flagship SUV with the index "800". It can be assumed that the Tank 400 is based on the same frame platform as in the “older” models, because the chassis architecture is identical: the front is an independent spring suspension, and the rear is a continuous axle.

Expected engines are gasoline with four or six cylinders with 227-354 hp. The design certainly provides for the integration of a hybrid system based on a 9-speed "automatic", although it is possible to use the old 8-speed transmission. The Tank 400 off-road vehicle will enter the Chinese market no earlier than 2022, so we can expect at least a six-month delay relative to the Tank 500. In Russia, Tank-branded off-road vehicles are also expected - the “300th” is to reach our country first, and delivery or localization of larger and more expensive models is not ruled out in the future.
