Following the launch of the GWM Tank 300 hybrid, GWM New Zealand says it is proud to extend their line up to include GWM Tank 300 petrol. This addition provides Kiwi new car buyers with an additional powertrain option to suit their individual needs.

GWM New Zealand claims that just like its hybrid sibling, the new GWM Tank 300 petrol comes to the New Zealand market with a offering of rugged design, a refined, tech-laden interior, tough off-road capability, dependable safety and outstanding value.

The key differences between the GWM Tank 300 Hybrid and Petrol models is the petrol variant having a 150kg lighter kerb weight with power being delivered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 162kW of power and 380Nm of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

With power also fed through a part-time 4WD system, the Tank 300 petrol is at home on-road as it is off it, says GWM New Zealand. Braked towing capacity for petrol models matches that of the Tank 300 Hybrid at 2500kg.

Available in the Lux and Ultra grade, the petrol specs are very similar to the existing hybrid with minor feature differences between the two powertrains:

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm a driving instructor and an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
