With the improvement of China vehicle brand, many Chinese new vehicles have a good performance in the chassis and power training, more Chinese consumers accept and buy China independent brand models, but if you want to buy a China brand positioning sports car, you will not have too many options except SAIC MG 6 and Lynk & Co 03, now Chery GX Pro might be one more good choice.
Recently, a set of real car photos about Chery Arrizo GX Pro was exposed online. According to the current news, Arrizo GX Pro will be powered by a new 1.6T engine and it’s expected to be officially launched on June 25 2019.
Is it the one equipped on new Tiggo 8 1.6T engine? That’s right, Chery’s latest third-generation ACTECO 1.6TGDI engine, it has maximum power of 145kW (194hp) and peak torque of 290m. The transmission system is also expected to pair the 7-speed wet dual clutch from Getrag.
If the engine is installed in Chery Arrizo GX Pro, it will be a proper steel gun. To know that the current Arrizo GX’s curb weight is only 1.3 tons, even if the weight of the 1.6T engine is increased, nearly 200 horsepower does not prevent the Arrizo GX Pro from becoming a small steel gun.
I found that Arrizo GX has a stiff suspension in my past driving test. Although the comfort was sacrificed, the entire chassis could give enough support to the car in cornering, It was originally sports chassis tuning, coupled with a fully powered engine, it will be sure to attract the attention of many young consumers.
In addition to the new 1.6T engine, Arrizo GX Pro will retain the current 1.5T engine. From the picture we may see the appearance and interior of Arrizo GX Pro maintain the same design of the current Arrizo GX, there is no obvious changes.
The current 1.5T engine on Chery Arrizo GX has maximum power of 108kW (144hp) and peak torque of 210Nm, it pairs analog 9-speed CVT gearbox.
