The four main key features of the GM6 – sharp exterior, spacious cabin, smart Qiyun AI mobility solution and guaranteed safety – will satisfy the needs of middle-class families," said Yu Jun, President of GAC Motor.
The mid- to high-end model features 1.5L and 1.3T engines, coupled with a five-speed manual or an Aisin six-speed automotive transmission.
