The prototype of the six-wheeled Shanhai Cannon was recently noticed during testing. To accommodate the third axle, Great Wall extended the body of the pickup truck, and also increased the ground clearance. The prototype does not have front and rear wheel arches.
The novelty will be equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, which is the standard model. This means that it will develop a power of 360 hp and a torque of 500 Nm. Paired with this engine, 9 automatic transmissions work, which transmit power to all six wheels.
“Great Wall originally planned to launch the Shanhai Cannon 6×6 in May 2021. But the release of the novelty was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is now expected to appear on the local market in the second half of 2023.”
