Within weeks of its official debut slated for next month at the 2020 Chengdu Motor Show, images of the all-new Wuling Victory MPV have leaked in China. As usual, the Asian country’s authorities beat General Motors to the punch, showing the first pictures and technical specifications of the first model to use the new Wuling Global Silver logo.
The all-new Wuling Victory is the first new-generation model to headline the next chapter of GM’s popular Chinese brand, which plans to dramatically renew both its image and its vehicle portfolio, aiming to expand its international reach and attract a younger audience. The Victory is a midsize MPV with a standard three-row, six-seat interior configuration.
Unlike the official sketches revealed earlier this month, the leaked images show the final look of the 2021 Wuling Victory, or exactly how it will roll off the production line. In addition, it represents the first realistic vision of Wuling’s new design language, which without a doubt gives the new Victory a much more modern and stylized image than all the other models that the brand has presented so far.
The upcoming Wuling Victory’s front end adopts a new corporate hexagonal grille whose interior features a combination of diagonal and horizontal bars, including a prominent molding supporting the new logo. In addition, the thin and sharp headlight clusters stand out up top, complemented by large four-segment “wolf claw” fog lights embedded in the bumper that give it a very distinctive image.
Meanwhile, the design of the sides and the rear has a more conservative appearance, with a traditional MPV format and well-defined lines. Depending on trim level, the grille, wheels, and bodyside trim will sport a glossy or darkened finish. The Wuling Victory measures 192 inches in length, 74 inches in width and 67 inches in height, mounted on a 110.2-inch wheelbase.
The all-new 2021 Wuling Victory will go on sale during the third quarter of the year in the Chinese market, equipped with one of two 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engines offering outputs of 145 and 174 horsepower, respectively. Although it will launch first in China, the Victory will gradually reach a growing number of foreign markets that will be part of Wuling’s international expansion.
