The key change is the new Great Wall Motor E20NB engine whereas the existing car has the E20NA. This new engine uses the Miller cycle, which increase the thermal efficiency. Maximum power of 185 kW and peak torque of 380 Nm are same as before. Thanks to the engine improvements fuel economy reduces to 8.8 l/100 km from 9.52 l/100 km in the 2023 version. Combined WLTC consumption is 2.06 l/100 km.

The E20NB engine used in the 2024 Tank 400 Hi4-T produces the same peak power and torque figures of 185 kW and 380 Nm respectively as the outgoing 2.0T engine. There is a 9-speed hybrid automatic transmission controlling the distribution of power. A front mounted electric motor provides 120 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque for a system combined level of 300 kW and 750 Nm.

The GWM Tank 400 Hi4-T is a PHEV using a 37.1 kWh battery pack along with the 2.0T engine which can both power the wheels and act as a generator and the upgrade does not change this basic configuration.

Visually the 2024 Tank 400 Hi4-T will remain unchanged. There is both a city version and off-road version. Surprisingly the off-road version is the cheaper at 285,800 yuan (39,550 USD) versus 289,800 (40,100USD) for the city version. Prices of the existing Tank 400 Hi4-T are 269,800 to 279,800 yuan (37,300 to 38,700 USD) and it is quite surprising that prices for the 2024 version are more expensive. The off-road version comes equipped with BorgWarner’s ESOF time-sharing all-wheel drive system to improve outdoor performance. Approach angle of the car is 33° while the departure angle is 30°, the minimum ground clearance is 224 mm, and the wading depth is 800 mm.

Inside the car has a 12.3-inch instrument screen and head-up display along with a centrally mounted 16.2-inch central display screen.
