The GWM Tank 400 has been revealed as a further extension of the Chinese manufacturer’s off-road biased SUV assault. Where design is concerned, the new product offering is quite a bit in line with the recently released Cyber Tank 300.
The GWM Tank 400 will compete in the large SUV segment alongside the likes of the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. However, it will be the second smallest product to be offered by the Tank sub-brand.
Specific dimensions have not been detailed but Auto Home China confirms that the GWM Tank 400 sports a wheelbase figure of 2 850 mm which is just a bit longer than its competitors. As noted with the design, the new SUV takes a rather futuristic approach with an array of angular lines throughout the body. At the front, a bold bumper and bonnet is separated by an LED headlamp cluster and chrome grille.
At the side, this theme is continued with a set of jagged wheel arches and angular lines applied throughout the profile. A set of stylish black roof rails, octagonal door mirrors and rocker panels contrast the bright blue finish. Black alloy wheels with yellow accents and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tyres round off the side design.
At the rear, the GWM Tank 400 shows off a spare wheel clamp with the branding in bold letters and yellow handles, a spoiler mounted to the swing-door, bold taillamps and a chunky bumper.
Within the cabin, the GWM Tank 400 shows off a number of premium trims such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel with touch-sensitive multifunction buttons, a large touchscreen infotainment system that looks to cover close to a third of the dashboard that sits above a series of titanium-finished controls. On the centre console, two octagonal cup holders are surrounded by a crystal finish gear selector and gloss black buttons controlling the seat heating and ventilation as well as aspects of the drive. Interestingly, a set of customisable digital displays have been applied to three traditional looking gauges for the driver readings.
No details regarding the powertrain has been revealed but it’s understood that the GWM Tank 400 could either adopt the existing 2,0-litre or 3,0-litre turbocharged petrol engines.
