Off-road performance and advanced suspension

The Shark's front and rear independent double wishbone suspension is unusual for pickup trucks, which generally use a rigid rear axle. The system of all-wheel drive adjusts torque distribution between the wheels in milliseconds, providing excellent performance on difficult terrain.

The approach and departure angles are 30° and 19,2°, respectively. The robust and boxy design, with a high hood and LED headlights connected by an illuminated piece, evokes the aggressiveness of a shark, inspiration for the model's name.
