Here are the variants of the upcoming GAC GN6
Last week, we reported that the local distributor of Chinese automotive manufacturer Guangzhou Automobile Corporation (GAC) will be launching their latest offering that is the GN6 MPV.
As Legado Motors Inc. (LMI) is now readying for its anticipated grand reveal (we have heard that this might come as early as February), the GAC GN6 is expected to clash with the recently-brought Maxus G50, as well as the MPV heavyweight Toyota Innova.
So while we are at it, here are the variants that will be offered in showrooms following its local market introduction.
As of what we learned from the grapevine, the GAC GN6 will be available in two variants both in automatic transmission. This simply means that they are dropping the manual transmission type, which is the base model.
These two models of GAC GN6 will share the same engine-powertrain matching: 1.5 liter turbocharged gasoline engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Unless last-minute replacements are made, the two variants (to be called GB and GE) will both enjoy 16-inch alloy wheels, halogen headlights with follow-me-home function, power adjustable side mirrors, and variable and intermittent windshield wipers.
For its interiors, the customers will be given the freedom to choose the option of wearing dark or light interiors for the GE variety, while the lower type will be limited to a light interior. The seats for the GE will be on leatherette trims while the GB will have fabric for it.
Aside from that, it is also interesting to note that the two varieties for the forthcoming vehicle will not have wireless charging dock, which is readily-available in the GT Premium variant that is being marketed in other countries. However, with the threat of Covid-19 is present, it comes as welcoming news to us that the models will have PM 2.5 air filters.
Further, the local base model offering will have a fixed moon-roof while the GB will enjoy a power sunroof.
Based on the respective websites, the two automatic transmission for market-leader Innova is priced P1.248 million (E variant) and P1.32 million (G variant). The Maxus G50 which comes in three variants, are pegged within the P1.09-P1.29 million range. With all these considerations, the forthcoming MPV from GAC must be barely touching the P1.3 million-price point.
Keep your attention glued to us as we try to reveal more about the upcoming GAC GN6 in the following days.
