The serious lack of core technologies (engines, transmissions, axles, air suspensions, etc.) has caused domestic heavy-duty truck brands to lose strong product support, and the brand has generally lacked corporate culture and other aspects. When international cooperation is carried out in a joint venture, the fate of its own brand is even worse, and it is very likely that it will become a cold house.
