This simply means that the GN6 that will be offered to the country will have 1.5 liter turbocharged gasoline engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. For its interior, customers can choose a light or dark orientation carpet with leatherette trim seats.

On the outside, the GAC GN6 that will be on retail in the Philippine market will have front fog lamps and a power sunroof.

Upon official launch, the new people carrier from GAC will expand the brand's lineup to six, joining the local stable made up of GA4 sedan, GA8 executive sedan, GS4 compact SUV, GM8 premium seven-seater minivan, and the flagship model GS8 midsize SUV.

The pricing will be announced at the virtual launch. However, the GAC GN6 is expected to be offered within P1.3-P1.5 million whereas the abovementioned competitors barely hit the P1.3 million-mark.

According to their respective websites, two automatic transmissions for market-leader Innova is priced P1.248 million (E variant) and P1.32 million (G variant). The Maxus G50 which comes in three variants, are pegged within the P1.09-P1.29 million range.
