Great Wall Steed S pick-up

Buying a brand-new Great Wall Steed, already the UK’s most affordable 4x4 double-cab pick-up, has become much easier for businesses thanks to the launch of a new finance offer that makes it possible to secure one with a deposit of just £1.

For the entry-level Steed S model (£13,998 CVOTR), the finance offer consists of a deposit of £1 followed by 59 monthly payments of £285.06, and a final payment of £424.06 (8.8 per cent representative APR).  The plan is available for business users only, through all 45 dealerships in the Great Wall dealer network, and continues until 30 September 2012.

The generously equipped new Steed is attracting interest from buyers of both new and used pick-ups across the UK, thanks to its combination of robustness, practicality and unrivalled value.  Not only is it the most affordable 4x4 double-cab pick-up to buy, but it is also the most economical to run.  Powered by a newly-developed 2.0-litre, 16-valve turbocharged diesel engine, the Steed delivers class leading fuel economy of 34.0 mpg (combined).  It also has best-in-class insurance ratings – 7A for the Steed S and 8A for the range-topping Steed SE.

“In the current economic climate, paying out thousands for a deposit on a new vehicle sometimes just isn’t possible, particularly for small businesses,” comments Great Wall Managing Director, Paul Hegarty.  “Our £1 deposit finance offer allows businesses who don’t want to make a large initial investment to still drive away in a brand new Steed.”

Affordable ownership without compromise

As well as being affordable, the Great Wall Steed is an extremely capable working tool.  Carrying capacity compares very well with established rivals – the maximum payload is 1,050kg – and towing capability is an impressive 2,000kg with a ‘braked’ trailer and 750kg unbraked.  Meanwhile, the vehicle’s high ground clearance and ‘on demand’ four wheel drive system make it a capable load-lugger off-road, as well as a comfortable on-road companion.

So that the buying and ownership experience of a Steed is as rewarding and trouble-free as possible, all dealers for the new brand have committed to the ‘Great Wall Promise’ which includes inflation-proof servicing plans and free service pick-up and drop-off.  All Steeds come with a comprehensive three-year / 60,000-mile mechanical warranty, a six-year anti-perforation warranty, three-year paint warranty and three-year roadside assistance.

The Steed is on sale through a newly-appointed network of hand-picked Great Wall dealers.
