GAC GN6 officially launched in Philippines
Legado Motors, Inc., the official distributor of GAC Motor in the Philippines, is pleased to officially launch its all-new multi-purpose vehicle in the country, the GAC GN6.
Initially released in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this 7-seater MPV is the newest model on the roster of the GAC Motor Philippines product line-up in the country.
The all-new GN6 boasts a sharp and elegant exterior, contributed by the all-new flying dynamics front-end design, which also highlights the GAC Motor emblem. The design is accentuated by the wing-shaped daytime running lamps that are not only functioning as the vehicle’s safety feature, but also give the GN6 a more appealing look. This new MPV comes in three colors: Pearl White, Elegant Black, and Peacock Blue.
At the back, a pair of LED taillights is complemented by an LED braking light strip, which is similar to the GN8 minivan. To give the GN6 a better stance and ride, it is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels.
With dimensions of 4,780mm long, 1,860mm wide, and 1730mm tall, the GN6 provides a comfortable and spacious ride for seven adult passengers. Its 190mm ultra-wide second-row corridor lets the passengers enter and exit the vehicle with ease, allowing easier access to third-row seats.
For a more comfortable ride, the second-row has captain seats, in which the armrests can be lifted or lowered. This also makes it more convenient to place the child booster seat. The seats can be adjusted frontwards or backwards so that the passengers may maximize the leg space of the GN6.
To complete the cozy and relaxed driving and riding experience, the GN6 also features a 360-degree Quiet Car technology that cancels the ambient noise in your environment.
The GN6 also has a 324-liter trunk space, that can be expanded to 1,100 liters by folding down the third-row seats — a space that is enough to fit in fourteen 20-inch luggage.
Apart from a spacious and comfortable cabin, the GN6 also comes with a 7-inch instrument and 8- inch LCD infotainment display that are housed in a single panel for a clean and elegant look. It is also equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker system, so you can listen to your favorite playlist while on the road. Plus, its center console is equipped with cockpit controls for ease of access and undistracted driving.
Powering the all-new GN6 is a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four Euro 5-compliant engine that is capable of producing an output of 170 horsepower and 265 Nm of torque. The engine was produced by Aisin Seiki, the largest producer of automatic transmission engines in the world.
The engine is also equipped with a Bosch 200bar in-cylinder fuel injection technology, making the GN6 a powerful, yet fuel-efficient MPV. It registers a fuel consumption of 14km/L and has a tank capacity of 52 liters. Despite its large size, the GN6 will save you tons of time refueling your gas tank.
When it comes to safety, the GN6 is equipped with front dual airbags, front side airbags, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS), hill-ascend and descend controls, a rearview camera, parking sensors, electronic parking brake, three-point seatbelts with alarm, ISOFIX child seat anchors, brake hold assist, and engine immobilizer with anti-theft alarm.
It also comes with a remote keyless system that performs the functions of a standard key without physical contact with the car. It includes a remote keyless ignition system, remote window and sunroof controller. Its sensor lock feature activates when the driver or key holder is at least 3 meters away from the car, while the unlock sensor activates when the driver is at least 1-meter away from the vehicle.
The GN6 is built on a high-strength steel safe chassis that does a great job in emitting the vehicle vibration and does its job in protecting the occupants of the vehicle from an intense collision impact.
For better stability at high speeds, the GN6 is equipped with Bosch’s latest ESP 9.3 that corrects oversteering at sudden cornering and sudden lane change. It also has a 14-in-1 active safety system that provides uphill and downhill assistance.
It is equipped with an L-type Mcpherson front suspension that effectively suppresses high-frequency vibration, resulting in better handling, a more stable ride, and better driving comfort.
The all-new GAC GN6 is available at an SRP of Php 1,480,000. It also comes with a 5-year warranty or 150,000 kms, whichever comes first.
