The plan for Great Wall 6X6 pickup has been revealed previously. The vehicle will be expanded based on Shanhai Cannon platform. Apart from overall drivetrain, biggest highlight is 6X6 tri-axle design, which will have a big impact on vehicle. The overall performance of the 6X6 will have higher performance, especially in terms of cross-country ability.
Refer to status of test car, it should be in initial stage of testing, body is covered with a certain degree of camouflage, but first half is basically same as Shanhai Cannon, and parts are already more off-road appearance and tighter front insurance. The steering wheel, as well as fording hose on right, correspond to previously exhibited models. Due to its positioning, it should not provide a luxurious look to Shanhai Cannon, as large number of chrome decorations is a bit inconsistent with its positioning.
You can see three-axle design at rear, and suspension shape will not change much. Referring to Shanhai Cannon chassis design, front axle will use double wishbone design, and rear axle will still be a solid axle., this is also main configuration of pickup trucks -SUVs are currently load and cross-country, and test car currently has an exaggerated ground clearance, but fender configuration is believed to be only a temporary part, and Shanhai Cannon side tailgate will also be retained.
In terms of power, Shanhaicannon 6X6 pickup is also equipped with a 3.0T V6 engine. The parameters are expected to match those of Shanhaicannon with a maximum power of 265kW and a maximum torque of 500N.m. It is matched with a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.
With release of spy photos of test vehicle, more information about this 6X6 pickup has slowly begun to surface. There is no doubt that this model will become very popular in future. 6X6 triaxial design brings more information. Strong off-road performance, indoor positioning is also quite unique. And this type of 6X6 models actually has many mature modification plans overseas, and some powerful modification factories even launch a complete set of modifications, including modification and after-sales warranty. In domestic market, if you want to convert according to foreign plans, in addition to not following rules, you must also bear great risks in terms of safety. Shanhaipao 6X6, as original factory car, does not have above problems at all, I believe that only limitation is availability of a suitable parking space at home.
