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. It is also available in Europe under the Steed name.
The bodyshell is licensed from Isuzu based on an earlier Isuzu / GM model which was sold as an Isuzu Rodeo. 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. 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).
In 2014, the new Wingle 6 was introduced, featuring among others, LED headlights, rear differential lock, reversing camera and parking sensors and tire pressure monitoring system. It is powered by the same range of the 2.0-litre diesel and 2.4-litre petrol engines.
The Australian specification V240 came 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 was supplied by the SAIC-Mitsubishi joint venture in Shanghai. The diesel engines are of Great Wall design and manufacture. V240 is specified as standard with alloy wheels, AM/FM CD radio, electric windows, leather trimmed seats, disc/drum brakes and air-conditioning.
In 2017, the updated Wingle 6 was released in Australia, with only the 2.0 L diesel engine available
