2023 GWM Shanhai Cannon 6×6 spy

GWM is preparing to introduce its wildest ute.

Spy photos published by My Driver And China Automotive News depicts a monstrous six-wheeled version of premium mountain cannon pickup truck is in the process of testing.

At this stage, it is expected that the GWM Shanhai Cannon 6×6 will be launched at the 2023 Shanghai auto show in April and will make its debut in China shortly thereafter.

According to a leaked slide also published by My Driverute 6×6 was originally intended to launch in China in May 2021 but was delayed due to the COVID pandemic.

This leaked slide also shows an undisguised version of this car with large tires, flared wheel arches, body panels, sports bars and a covered tub.

It’s unclear whether the Shanhai Cannon 6×6 will offer the four-wheeler’s unusual split rear door or if it will have a traditional single door instead.

Pointing out the obvious, the GWM Shanhai Cannon 6×6 has two extra wheels making it longer than the conventional all-wheel drive model.

It’s unclear how long the Shanhai Cannon 6×6 is, but the regular model measures 5440mm long, 1991mm wide and 1924mm tall with a 3350mm wheelbase.

According to the report from China, the power will come from an original 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 petrol engine with 48V mild hybrid system, production 268kW power and 500Nm of torque.

It will be mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with powertrain expected to be sent through all-wheel drive to all six wheels.

The regular Shanhai Cannon is also available with a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine. The latter of these is the same setup used in the GWM Tank 300 Hybrid.

Inside, the spyed 6×6 Shanhai Cannon prototype has a very similar layout to the regular four-wheeler. It is also very similar to Tank GWM 500interior of.

The tracked Shanhai Cannon 6×6 prototype has changed its appearance with a series of yellow accents on the seats and door armrests.

Although the GWMN Shanhai Cannon 6×6 may never launch in Australia, auto expert understands that the regular four-wheeler model could launch in Australia later this year.

It is likely to become the first hybrid model in the Australian Ute segment GWM focuses on electric vehicles.

GWM is busy launching many new cars in China.

In addition to the regular Cannon, sold here as the Ute, there are more commercial-focused models available plus the longer King Kong Cannon and the aforementioned higher-end Shanhai Cannon.

Cannon/Ute also made a truncated, single-cabin all-wheel drive model called the Artillery.
