The mobility, off-road ability and comfort of vehicles have been greatly improved. On the 50th anniversary of the National Day in 1999, SHACMAN vehicles separated into four groups of SX2150 and SX2190 series heavy off-road vehicles, which were inspected by the Party and the people for the second time.
2009 National Day and 60th anniversary of Peoples republic of China, by virtue of excellent quality and advanced technology, the third generation military vehicles of SHACMAN appeared once again in the National Day parade.
Since the beginning of the new century, as an important military off-road vehicle production base in China, SHACMAN has been devoting itself to the research of military vehicle demand, keeping in mind the national defense mission, following the requirements of equipment development, and has developed various types of vehicles, such as SX2153, SX2190N, SX2300.

In order to meet the needs of national defense development and actual combat of the army, SHACMAN actively went deep into the army, conducted field investigations and comprehensive tests, and developed military vehicles such as general tactical vehicles and logistical support vehicles adapted to modern warfare. On July 30, 2017, celebrating the People’s Liberation Army 90th anniversary military parade, with its excellent product quality and diversified products, SHACMAN military trucks participated in its fifth military parade.
