The GM8 is a large MPV which will compete with the successful Buick GL8 (hence its name GM8) and the Honda Odyssey in China. As opposed to other domestic brands that have tried to go head-to-head with the GL8, GAC has understood that it shouldn’t be a cheap alternative but instead luxurious, as most buyers of this type of vehicle in China are luxury taxi companies. It therefore offers modern styling, a posh interior and alle the features Buick also offers, yet at a lower price point: 176.800 Yuan (€ 22.500,- / US$27,500) to 259.800 Yuan (€ 33.000,- / US$ 40,300) compared to a starting price of 229.900 Yuan (€ 29.200,- / US$ 35,700) for the GL8, which can cost double its base price in the luxury Avenir version.
The Trumpchi GM8 is GAC’s largest vehicle to date at 5.066/1.923/1.822mm with a 3.000mm wheelbase, seating seven in a 2/2/3 setup, and an even longer version with more seats will be offered later. It is powered by the same engine as the GS8 crossover: a 2-liter engine with 200hp and 320Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
