The GS8 is a large SUV which will be the flagship of the GAC Trumpchi brand, and the largest and most expensive vehicle Guangzhou Auto has made to date. It sits on the same platform as the GA8 sedan. Arguably, the GS8 is one of the best looking Chinese SUVs so far, and it shares a slight resemblance to the Infiniti QX80 (but not nearly as much to speak of copying like Zotye has done with its SR9). Especially the headlights are very original, with four separate parts positioned in a square, surrounded by an LED strip. The GS8 is also significantly smaller than that behemoth. Its 4.810/1.910/1.770mm dimensions and 2.800mm wheelbase means its similarly sized to the Range Rover Sport and BMW X5.
Power comes from a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 201hp and 300Nm, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive is optional. Prices start at 163.800 yuan (€ 22.500,- / US$23,600, cheaper than the smaller Renault Koleos, and even cheaper than the GA8 sedan) and can run up to 259.800 yuan. Its closest domestic rivals are the Changan CS95 and Haval H9. In June 2017, Trumpchi launched a slightly smaller, five-seater version of the GS8, called GAC Trumpchi GS7.
