The Great Wall Wingle (Chinese: 长城风骏; pinyin: Chángchéng Fēngjùn) is a compact pickup truck built and marketed by the Chinese automaker Great Wall Motors since 2006. In 2009, it became the first Chinese-made 'Ute' or pickup to be sold in Australia where it is marketed as the V-Series.[2] It is also available in Europe under the Steed name.[1]

It has been noted by motoring journalists that the Wingle shares a very similar side and rear-end profile to the Isuzu D-Max sold since 2002.[3][4] The vehicle's front end styling also bears a striking resemblance to the 2002 Volkswagen Magellan concept car.

A new pick-up named Wingle 5 has been released in 2011 and is sold alongside the original, which has been renamed Wingle 3.[5] It is now available with a new 2-litre turbodiesel common rail engine developing 105 kW (141 hp) and 305 N·m (225 lb·ft).[6]

In 2014, the new Wingle 6 was introduced, featuring among others, LED headlights, rear differential lock,[7] reversing camera and parking sensors and tire pressure monitoring system.[8] It is powered by the same range of the 2.0-litre diesel and 2.4-litre petrol engines.[9]


The Australian specification V240 comes standard with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 100 kW (134 hp) and 200 N·m (150 lb·ft) of torque which is licensed from Mitsubishi Motors. In some markets, it is offered with a GW2.8TC diesel engine. V240 is specified as standard with alloy wheels, AM/FM CD radio, electric windows, leather trimmed seats, disc/drum brakes and air-conditioning.

In 2010, a single-cab model was released which, in the Australian market, replaced the SA220 (Great Wall Sailor).[10] In 2011 the dual-cab V240 was upgraded to the newly released Wingle 5.[11]
