■ Model introduction
Trumpchi GM8 is the first MPV model of GAC Trumpchi. It is positioned in the mid-to-high-end market. Its domineering shape and relatively large body make it more suitable for public and business occasions. In terms of price, it is more “close to the people” in the same class. I believe It will also attract the attention of many home users. The front face of the new car shows the most domineering version of the Lingyun Wing family design. At the same time, the entire series is equipped with LED headlights, which is full of technology.
The low-end models of the new car use 225/60 R17 size tires, and the high-end models use 225/55 R18 size tires, both of which are equipped with aluminum alloy wheels, but the rim styles are also different. In terms of body color, the new car comes with peacock blue, pearl white, elegant black and mocha brown for consumers to choose from.

Similar to many MPV models, the GM8's gear handle is also set on the center console, which is relatively close to the steering wheel, making it easy to operate.
In terms of seat layout, GM8 uses a 2+2+3 layout. The two “boss seats” in the second row are configured with independent armrests and comfortable headrests. The high-end models also have heating/ventilation/ The massage function and leg rest are also relatively high-end configurations in the same level.
In terms of riding space, we can see from our experience that the 1.78-meter height experience can get ample riding space in the front, middle and rear three rows, especially the rear two rows are relatively adjustable, allowing passengers to adjust to suit them. Sitting position. The third row of seats can be folded up, so that the trunk can also be used more flexibly.
In terms of power, the new car uses a 2.0T turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 201 horsepower and a peak torque of 320 N·m. It uses Aisin's 6-speed automated manual transmission. In terms of chassis suspension, the front McPherson rear multi-link four-wheel independent suspension is adopted.
