The GWM P Series truly is a versatile vehicle with all the innovation and value that the modern world demands. Let’s look at 5 Reasons why the GWM P Series is the adventure bakkie for you.

1. All Wheel Drive


Simply put, once you get into the GWM P Series, you are prepped for an extraordinary drive that is perfectly primed for South African roads, rough or smooth. Whether you are looking to take the family camping in the Drakensburg mountains or off-road on Cape Town dunes with the crew – there is a model (4×2 or 4×4) and a driving mode for every adventure: Standard, Eco, Sport + 4L.

3. Rugged Good looks and a luxurious interior

It is easy to pass the P Series off, but don’t be fooled by its rugged exterior, this bakkie is as comfortable as they come. Experience a smooth ride, even over rough terrain, thanks to the independent front suspension combined with heavy-duty rear left suspension for outstanding load-carrying. Whether it’s an overnight or a Summer long road trip – the thrill of driving in the refined, European designed cabin, with best-in-class legroom and all the features you need are unmatched.

3. Safety Comes Standard

We know that safety is important to you and your family. That is why the P Series is so impressive, just take a look at some of the safety features available:


  • Lane Support System: This is a high-tech safety system that includes Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Lane Centre Keeping. They all work together to prevent you from unintentionally drifting out of your lane.
  • Lane Keeping Assist: Lane Keeping Assist actively steers your bakkie back into its lane or activates the brakes to avoid a collision.
  • Lane Centre Keeping: LCK is a safety system that keeps the bakkie centred in your lane, even at highway speeds.
  • Rear Crossing Traffic Alert: With the use of radar sensors on the bakkie, the rear cross-traffic alert prevents you from reversing into cars by alerting you when vehicles are detected from behind.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): The ACC automatically adjusts the vehicle speed to maintain a safe following distance.

4. The Sheer Performance

The P Series is all about Finding the Edge, whether that is finding a sweet new surf spot or going off-road in the winelands, it’s all you need from an adventure-seeking bakkie. This bakkie features a responsive ZF 8AT speed gearbox, multi-link rear suspension and is powered by a diesel engine with a mighty 120kW and 400n.m of torque that works harder for you. Plus it has the looks to match with a sturdy chrome-plated grille, sharp eagle-eye headlights and muscular body lines make this bakkie the ultimate performance conqueror.
