2023 GWM Tank 300 petrol price confirmed for Australia – UPDATE

A petrol-only, non-hybrid version of the new GWM Tank 300 four-wheel-drive from China has joined the range in Australia.

A petrol version of the new 2023 GWM Tank 300 off-roader has been added to the range, priced from $46,990 drive-away.

The Tank 300 – a Jeep Wrangler-styled four-wheel-drive from Chinese marque Great Wall Motors (GWM) – was until now available in a choice of two grades, sharing a 225kW 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine paired to a hybrid system.

GWM has now introduced a petrol-only version, powered by a 162kW and 380Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.

It costs $9000 to $10,000 less than the hybrid version, at $46,990 drive-away for the Lux petrol, and $50,990 drive-away for the Ultra petrol – compared to $55,990 and $60,990 drive-away for equivalent hybrid versions.

Standard equipment levels are largely unchanged from the hybrid, however the petrol lacks a number of features.

All petrol models miss out on digital radio and front cross-traffic alert technology (but keep rear cross-traffic alert) which is standard on all hybrids, while the Ultra petrol does not offer the Ultra hybrid’s auto parking feature, and memory and ‘welcome’ functions for the driver’s seat.

The petrol versions use an eight-speed automatic transmission – compared to the hybrid’s nine-speed auto – but share the hybrid’s part-time four-wheel-drive system.

The petrol Tank 300 quotes the same 2500kg towing capacity and 224mm ground clearance as the hybrid.

However, the petrol carries a 225kg-lower tare weight (2106kg vs 2331kg), and 173kg-lower gross vehicle mass (2552kg vs 2725kg) than the hybrid – which affords it a 52kg-higher payload (446kg vs 394kg).

The 2023 GWM Tank 300 petrol is now available to order.
