GWM to launch the Wingle 5 pickup in NepalPosted On: August 7, 2022 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Almost a year after the brand’s debut in Nepal (with the launch of three models), Great Wall Motors is readying to launch a new pickup truck–the Wingle 5–in Nepal. The entry-level pickup, most popular in the South America region, will be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine, and it will sit below the Poer in the company’s pickup lineup. VG Impex Pvt. Ltd, the authorised distributor of GWM vehicles, might launch the new pickup here within August.
Design and features
As seen in the international market, the Wingle 5’s design is pretty simple. The pickup’s front fascia features a front grille with the brand’s logo at the centre, halogen headlamps with DRLs, and fog lamps; and the turn-indicators are housed in the ORVMs. The four-door pickup gets halogen tail lights, fog lights, and an approximate cargo capacity of 1150 litres at the rear.
The pickup might come with notable features such as a multi-function steering wheel, a 4-inch infotainment system, power windows, dual airbags, a reverse sensor, ABS with EBD, and an anti-theft immobiliser, among others.

Engine and specifications
Powering the Wingle 5 will be a 2.0-litre diesel engine that generates 140 hp of power and a torque of 320 Nm. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
Unlike the Poer, the double-cabin pickup might be offered in both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions.
