There’s been no shortage of cool cars debuting at this year’s Shanghai auto show.
The Cannon CyberP!ckup 6×6 has to be the craziest, though.
Ok, it’s not a car per se, but rather a three-axle monster developed by Great Wall Motors (GWM).

Judging from the pictures, it looks like a bonkers pickup that could tackle any terrain.
More than likely considering it rides on a sextuplet of 18-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch Cooper Discovery AT3 off-road tires.
That’s not to mention its massive ground clearance, too.
Getting into the nitty gritty, it’s actually based on the Shanhai Cannon but comes equipped with a third axle, and heavy-duty suspension with nitrogen shock absorbers.
The Cannon CyberP!ckup 6×6 comes with no fewer than five electronically-controlled differential locks, too.
Not only that, but this beast of a truck has been developed to accommodate not only petrol and plug-in hybrid powertrains, but also a hydrogen fuel setup.
It serves as a battery-powered EV as well.
It’s no slouch, either.
Under the hood is a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V6 in combination with an electric motor, delivering a total of 510bhp and 552 lb-ft of torque.
As the Cannon CyberP!ckup 6×6 is a PHEV, its battery pack is expected to provide 31 miles (50 kilometers) of electric range.
Design-wise, it looks like a mish-mash of things.
There’s definitely hints of Toyota Tundra and Ram 1500 there combining to create a tough-looking truck.
The third axel definitely gives off Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 vibes, albeit in PHEV guise.
The dual-cab pickup is practical, though, coming equipped with an aluminum winch, a pair of recovery hooks, and a 60:40-split tailgate.
There’s a very strong possibility the GWM Cannon CyberP!ckup 6×6 will come to fruition, as there have been spy shots of camouflaged prototypes.
Some Chinese news outlets have even reported that the 6×6 beast is going into production.
Watch this space.
