Geely Emgrand 7 takes on Karakoram highway.
A convoy of Geely Emgrand 7 recently drove with ease on Karakoram highway, built on top of the ancient Silk Road, connecting Pakistan with China, traversing through glaciers and treacherous road conditions.
This route is also referred to as the 'eighth wonder of the world', and only the most reliable vehicles can safely tackle it.
Late autumn, just before the road was scheduled to close, a convoy of Geely Emgrand 7 braved dangerous conditions including landslides, heavy snow, frozen roads, and extremely low temperatures. The journey started pleasantly enough in the famed Silk Road outpost, built atop a flat land oasis, Kashgar, 1,300m above sea level. Equipped with a 1.5ltr naturally aspirated engine and matched with an automatic CVT continuously variable transmission, the Emgrand sedans smoothly accelerated towards the mountains in the distance.
Passing the beautiful Karakul Lake, Geely Emgrand 7 headed up into the Muztagh mountains, known locally as the 'father of glaciers' in the Karakoram range.
Rising from 1,300m to as high as 5,200m above sea level, the air thins, but the golden powertrain combination in the Emgrand performed admirably, as if nothing had changed.
