The side of the body, the new car shape is simple and generous, straight lines, continue the non-load-bearing body, waistline runs through the entire body, and the use of square rearview mirror, conventional modeling door handle, 19-inch rims and other designs, further enhance the hard off-road vehicle properties of the vehicle.

For comparison, the Harvard H9 currently on sale is 4843/1926/1900mm in length, width and height, and 2800mm in wheelbase.

Harvard is a subsidiary of Great Wall, and the Harvard H9 is the first seven-seat medium-and large-sized SUV under the Harvard brand. It launched three models in November 2014 with a price range of 22.98 yuan to 272800 yuan. In June 2015, the Harvard H9 five-seater model went on sale for 219800 yuan to 262800 yuan. Since then, the H9 has undergone several changes.

In November 2021, it was revealed that Harvard H9 would stop production permanently. At that time, it was reported that the Harvard H9 would be discontinued by the end of December 2021, including elite, comfortable, intelligent, deluxe, luxury and distinguished models. Then a car blogger retweeted and said: "on the Harvard H9 production: it is true that the interior of the Great Wall has decided to stop production of the Harvard H9 at the end of this year, and it is more likely to stop production completely, the model is over, but after all, it is a meritorious model that has just been changed." when the leader softened again, he changed it to a temporary stop, paying attention to it temporarily. However, the Harvard H9 has long been determined not to be replaced, and Harvard has other new off-road products. " But the news was quickly denied by officials, when Great Wall insiders said: "Harvard H9 is still in production according to the product plan, has not received a stop notice."

As a domestic hard cross-country SUV priced at 200000 yuan, the early Harvard H9 also had a highlight moment. The launch of the Harvard H9 lowers the threshold for cross-country SUV, bringing more choices for players. In addition, due to its excellent off-road ability and price blessing, the car snatched a lot of Toyota Prado orders after its launch, even known as "domestic Prado". According to the data, the retail figures of the Harvard H9 from 2020 to 2022 were 17345, 11498 and 12444 respectively, but after 2023, with the high-end development of own-brand off-road vehicles and the development of new energy, Harvard H9 sales did not perform well.

The official map is a replacement of the Harvard H9, and the price range of the models currently on sale is 21.48-279800 yuan. According to the latest retail figures, the top three models sold by the Harvard brand in 2023 are the Harvard H6, the Harvard Big Dog and the Harvard M6, with cumulative sales of 218200, 124000 and 51500, respectively, while the Harvard H9 has accumulated sales of 5792, with monthly sales of less than 500.

According to the plan, a new replacement of the Harvard H9 may be available in the first half of the year. According to the market news, the price of the new car is expected to be close to that of the models currently on sale. As a reference, the price range of Harvard H9 currently on sale is 21.48-279800 yuan. Judging from the information that has been exposed, the new car has a good off-road performance, but as the competition in the car market has entered a white-hot stage, more and more independent brands begin to layout "hard off-road" market segments, including Dongfeng warriors and BYD equation leopard, and so on. New cars will also face a lot of competitive pressure after they appear on the market. As for whether the new car can bring sales growth to the Harvard brand again after the launch, you can look forward to it.
