GWM will add an aluminium tray-optioned Cannon Ute for those heading to the worksite, priced from $36,990 driveaway
For the Cannon CC, the tub-tray found in existing GWM Cannon utes has been replaced by an aluminium tray that will be “the preferred choice for many tradespeople and primary producers”, according to the local arm of the Chinese manufacturer.
The new tray measures in at 1730mm long, 1855mm wide and 235mm deep.
The GWM Cannon CC will continue to be powered by the same 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine found across the rest of the Cannon range, producing 120kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
GWM says that the Cannon CC has a braked towing capacity of 3000kg and a payload of 1130kg.
Three variants of the Cannon CC will be available including a 4×2, 4×4 and Cannon-L 4×4 option.
GWM Australia says the new CC ute variant is already beginning to arrive in Australia, with first deliveries set to take place shortly.
Both the Cannon CC 4×2 and 4×4 variants are equipped with the following features:

The GWM ute range was tested by ANCAP in 2021, where it received a five-star safety rating. The vehicle scored 86 percent for adult occupant protection, 87 percent for child occupant protection and 73 percent for safety assist.
As standard, the Cannon CC variants are fitted with hill descent control, hill-start assist, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and tyre pressure monitoring.
All prices listed are driveaway.
