It is worth mentioning that the Tank 330 was developed as a crowdfunding project. The crowdfunding was originally planned for the Tank 300 3.0T model. The project started at 8 PM Beijing Time on March 30, 2023, and the crowdfunding goal of 20 million yuan co-creation fund was completed in only 6 seconds, with 1,000 orders, each person was limited to one order, with a unit price of 20,000 yuan (2,800 USD).

In terms of appearance, the Tank 330 is based on the current Tank 300 Frontier Limited Edition, equipped with a rectangular grille, round headlights, metal front and rear protective bumpers, wide wheel arches, and roof luggage racks. Iron pedals are added to the left and right side skirts of the Tank 330 to facilitate passengers getting on and off the car. At the same time, cooling vents are added to the engine hood.

The square rear has the “Tank 330” and “V6” logos engrained, indicating the identity of its 3.0T V6 engine. A roof spoiler, a towing hook, and an external spare tire are also present, which is typical for an off-road vehicle. The tailgate door handle is set on the left side of the body.

The Tank 330 measures 4772/1970/1960 (1971) mm, with a 2750 mm wheelbase. The vehicle has a wading depth of 900 mm, an approach angle of 36 degrees, and a departure angle of 37 degrees. The curb weight is 2480 kg. The new car runs on 18-inch rims with tire specifications of 265/70R18.

  1. At least here in the Southeast Asian market, and also in Australia, it is kind of expected for off roaders to be diesel, mainly for range and low end torque. GWM has diesel engines in the Poer series of pickup trucks they sell here, so not sure why they didn’t carry over. They think diesel is too unrefined for the Tank series?
