Haval Dargo Trademark
Great wall has been trademarking several models in India

The term “Dargo” in the trademark stands for “Dare to go” according to Haval

Great Wall Motor has received the trademark for the Haval Dargo nameplate in India. The SUV is “inspired” by the Ford Bronco off-roader and could be launched soon in India.

Called the Big Dog in China, the Haval Dargo comes with a rugged front end replete with a trapezoidal grille, circular LED headlights, each with a ring-style DRL, LED fog lamps, and a minimalist bumper.

The car is devoid of complex lines

While the side profile is vast yet subtle, barring the body cladding of course, with chrome embellishment for the window frame, at the back, the Dargo has sleek LED lamps and a rugged bumper like up front.

As can be seen, there are slight differences between the Dargo and the Big Dog on the outside. Inside, the Dargo will come with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, a multifunctional steering wheel, vertical air vents, rotary gear selector knob, a handle on the passenger side, among other things.

The cabin seems spacious and should carry 5 adults with ease

The car, which can be had as a front- and all-wheel drive model, will even have a powered tailgate, drive modes and is offered with 2 engine options overseas. The 1.5-litre turbo-petrol is good for 169 HP, whereas the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol motor makes 211 HP. A 7-speed DCT will be teamed with them.

It costs the Indian equivalent of between Rs. 14 lakhs and Rs. 16.75 lakhs in neighbouring China and should be launched in India later this year provided that Great Wall sorts all of its issues swiftly.
