The Chinese automaker expands its product line for our market

Like we’ve always said on this website—and that’s because we’re stating facts, not because we’re particularly enamored of China-made cars—vehicles manufactured in the People’s Republic will continue to flood our market. And that’s whether you like it or not. In fact, as you read this, GAC Motor Philippines has just launched a new minivan called the GN6.

At 4,780mm long, 1,860mm and 1,730mm tall, the GN6 is smaller than another GAC minivan, the GN8 (and slightly more compact than the Honda Odyssey if you need a more familiar comparison). The GN8, in case you’re confused, used to be called GM8, and GAC famously had a sales promo for it last year that offered a free GA4 sedan if you bought one unit of the capacious family hauler.

The GN6 is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 170hp and 265Nm, and mated to a six-speed transmission. This powerplant is already Euro 5-compliant, according to GAC.

The new minivan is priced at P1,480,000 and comes with a five-year (or 150,000km) warranty. And here’s some good news for interested buyers: If you buy this vehicle from now until March 31, 2021, you’ll receive a P100,000 discount voucher. All you need to do is pay the P50,000 reservation fee.

Go check out this car at an authorized GAC dealership. Maybe it will suit your and your family’s taste and needs.
