Pardo is the forerunner of the medium and large 7 SUV market. Thanks to the solid reputation of Big Brother Land Cruiser and the solid and durable quality of Toyota, Prado sells at the same level as the leader. The starting price of 47,000 is very strong. . Compared to Volkswagen Tourang and Commander Jeep, although the three could not be compared in cross-country performance, the difference was sufficient to reach 150,000. Therefore, although all three are affiliated with the medium and large 7 SUV market, there may not be direct competition. Compared to its younger brother, Highlander, Volkswagen Tourang seems to have a slightly higher position. The popularity of Volkswagen branded vehicles at the same level has made it a further king in the seven SUV areas following Highlander!
After that, Commander Jeep announced a domestic launch, which is also 2.0T+7, Commander The starting price is slightly lower than the 30,000 yuan, and the overall pricing is also slightly lower. However, from the current market attention, the commander may still find it difficult to shake the position. Prior to this, there were actually Tigers in the same category, from product strength to size to 240,000 worth, explosive funds have great potential, but unfortunately due to its own lack of positioning for the comfort of the same time with the commercial vehicle sales in the same channel Maintenance and other factors, Ford Amateur regretted to become a passenger at the same level!
Now the U.S. Department has added another team to China, and the long-awaited Chevrolet SUV - Traverse has finally introduced a small number of parallel imports in the public eye, the specific price of 45.90-49.90 million. The 3.6L+9AT, which is even larger than the Audi Q7, is a bit expensive for the current situation. However, the price will be reduced after the introduction of the 2.0T series. At the same time, according to available information, GM is likely to transform Encore and Traverse into an existing LaCrosse and Regal model by 2020. By then, I think that there will be no monopoly in the medium-to-large 7-segment SUV market. It will also greatly increase!
3.6L+9AT was imported into the entire system. It is somewhat unrealistic for commanders and commanders. From the perspective of high pricing, even if 2.0T+9AT is introduced, the selling price will still be domestically produced. There is a big gap between Going and the commanding officer, so localization may be the only way to improve their competitiveness and specific market share, but it is not ruled out that the US department is able to introduce 2.0T+9AT at a price of about 35 million yuan. Whether it is recognized by consumers or not, the 5189mm vehicle length and 3071mm wheelbase have already commanders and even disassembled large and medium-sized SUVs such as the Audi Q7 in terms of size, and the 2.0T+9AT powertrain that can generate 260 horsepower and 353Nm torque has been compared. The 2.0T+7DCT and the commander's 2.0T+9AT are still in the dominant position, and the overwhelming power in size has also brought unprecedented attention to this US department!
In addition, Chevrolet Traverse's styling design is still able to meet all the imagination, domineering, muscular, radical and so on of a medium and large SUV. The big cars have a more pure lineage on the U.S. Department. It is even more obvious, and in terms of internal space performance, Traverse's 2+2+3 layout can make the best use of its large size, and the trunk volume is flexible, and it's up to you to be a bed or a guest. In the next, the commander may be more disadvantaged, the way is at a medium level!
Although the Central Control Design Not outstanding, but the large central control armrests and superior vision can still give consumers an unusual experience. From the perspective of its overall performance, Traverse products are full of strength, but the imported 3.6L+9AT is not cost-effective and competitive. Excellent, even if it caused the 2.0T+9AT car system to still not take advantage, and its domestic production is unknown, it is difficult for Traverse to pose a threat to the sales before the domestic production, if once the LaCrosse Regal mode is opened, then And the commander may really have to collect box lunches.
