At the point when GWM revealed its P-Series back in 2019, the Chinese car goliath made it maintained that its newbie should rank in the “Best 3” pick-ups overall close by Portage and Toyota’s bakkie juggernauts. That is an aggressive objective for GWM, however assuming you consider the significant achievement that GWM’s SUV image, Haval, is as of now encountering overall and locally, then maybe a Chinese bakkie situation is to be unfolding.
