Sales of the V8 with a five-seat layout, front-wheel drive and simplified equipment have started in China. The starting price was reduced by almost 15% to 160 thousand yuan (22.5 thousand dollars) compared to the 7-seater single-wheel drive version. The technology is the same: under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbo engine (252 horsepower and 400 Nm) coupled with an 8-speed Aisin automatic transmission.

A Russian blogger took apart the new GAC GS8 and called it “disposable”

The GAC press service emphasizes that the rear sofa has become freer: legroom has increased to 930 millimeters, headroom to 960 millimeters. The trunk also remained in the black: now the opening depth is up to 2120 millimeters, and the width is 1120 millimeters! But for some reason GAC does not provide the value of the useful volume.


The five-seat GAC GS8 cannot be ordered with all-wheel drive: such a transmission is only available in a three-row configuration. The list of available options has also become smaller. However, the new equipment cannot be called poor: there is a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control, all-round cameras, a “transparent” hood, an electric fifth door, a media system with a 14.6-inch touchscreen and eight speakers, and 20-inch wheels are standard installed.

The Federal Security Service purchased a batch of large GAC crossovers

The export prospects of the two-row GAC GS8 have not yet been determined, but over time such crossovers may appear outside of China. The model is also presented in Russia, but only with all-wheel drive, a derated 2.0 turbo engine (231 power, 380 Nm) and a 7-seater cabin. Prices range from 3,899,000 to 4,499,000 rubles.
