New MAN truck generation to redefine BTS

MAN TGX truck

The all-new MAN truck generation (TG) will be on display at next week’s Brisbane Truck Show.

On display will be the 12-tonne Gross Combination Mass (GCM) TGL powered by MAN’s 250hp D08 SCR-only engine; the 26-tonne GCM TGX powered by MAN’s 13-litre D26 engine; and the TGX 26.640 with MAN’s 15-litre 640hp engine, with a 26-tonne GCM and with the GX cab.

“Since we first introduced the all-new MAN truck generation to customers and media mid-last year, we’ve received amazing feedback from everyone that has driven the TGL, TGM, TGS, and TGX,” said Craig Lee, Penske Australia Executive General Manager – On Highway.

“We wholeheartedly believe that the new TG platform is redefining the trucking landscape in Australia, and what we are hearing, backs that.”

MAN Truck & Bus General Manager, George Konstantinou, said the company’s dedication to over 167,000 hours into the design of the TG has paid off.

“The trio on our stand, plus the TGS 26.540 displayed in Technology Alley, clearly show how MAN has drawn on its experience of over 260 years of engineering excellence,” he said.

“Boasting excellent driver fit, great efficiency and economy features, and optimised uptime, the new truck generation makes for a strong business partner.”

According to Konstantinou, the cabin workspace sets a new benchmark with an intuitive dash layout, multi-function steering wheel, advanced infotainment system and SmartSelect navigator.

“The innovative driver assistance features such as ACC, steering wheel airbag, cabin safety cell, emergency brake assist, and ComfortSteering – to name a few – mean drivers won’t want to leave the cab,” he said.

Visitors to the Brisbane Truck Show can see the new MAN TG on stand 54 in the main hall as well as in Technology Alley on Little Stanley Street.
