Luxuriant Automotive Group, Inc. (LAGI), the exclusive distributor of GWM vehicles in the Philippines, adds the much-awaited GWM Tank 300 to its lineup. A perfect combination of impressive comfort, technology, and crushing 4×4 performance, it’s made to stand out on the road, and overachieve off it.
Built on the TANK platform—the latest and most advanced body-on-frame platform designed by GWM, the Tank 300 is designed and engineered to handle the most complicated road conditions. Its highly adaptive nature gives its drivers the ability to satisfy their ever-exploring spirit, especially when the road turns to trails. And with a 75L fuel tank capacity, enthusiasts can conquer more terrain and enjoy longer trips.
The solid foundation means exceptional rigidity and stiffness, perfect because it is destined to be a go-anywhere, do-anything luxury SUV. This capability is supplemented by its electronically-controlled, mechanically locking front and rear locking differentials as well as an All-Terrain Mode Selector with Crawl Control and Tank Turn Assist which reduces the turning circle to easily maneuver it into tight or narrow spaces.
Powering the Tank 300 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that boasts of a high-thermal efficiency (38 percent) for excellent power and fuel efficiency. As a result, it makes 217 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 380 Nm of torque from 1,800 to 3,600 rpm. This is then mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. An intelligent start-stop system is standard.
The bold and expressive exterior is marked by traditional 4×4 styling cues like the circular headlights, boxy design, and tall stance. At the center of its solid and muscular frame is the Tank logo made of two capital letters: “T” and “U.” The “T” stands for “Technology and Trendy,” while the “U” means “User and United.” The Tank 300 is backed by impressive off-road credentials. Measuring in at 4,760 mm in length with a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, the Tank 300 has 33 degrees approach and 34 degrees departure angles, 224 mm of ground clearance, and 700 mm of water wading capability. In short, it’s the ultimate partner for those who demand reliability and presence on the road.
Drawing on GWM’s R&D excellence, the Tank 300 offers a highly digitalized driving experience that combines sophistication and functionality. Front and center is the dual 12.3-inch interactive smart screen displays that show real-time information at an easy glance. The driver is further enthralled by the microfiber-and-leather combination steering wheel and the signature aviation gear shifter. Further elevating every drive, the sunroof creates an atmosphere of openness and freedom, while the Nappa leather-accentuated seats offer a sense of luxury. And finding your perfect sitting position is an absolute breeze with the 12-way Power Adjustable Driver Seat. In terms of features, the list is long including ambient interior lighting, a cooling box, 220V power outlet, and even a 9-speaker Infinity sound system for an amazing onboard audio experience.

Its comprehensive suite of intelligent onboard safety systems, including high-strength steel body frame, 360-degree View Camera Monitoring, Advanced Driver Assist technology equate to a 5-star rating. It simply means that this SUV is engineered and built to protect.
